External timber cladding. Method of specifying

Status : Current, Under review   Published : December 2014



What is this standard about?

BS 8605-1:2014 describes ways to specify the characteristics of external timber cladding products. 

Who is this standard for? 

  • Specifiers of external timber cladding components 
  • Manufacturers, suppliers and users of external timber cladding
  • Building designers, engineers, architects
  • The construction industry
  • Health and safety professionals
  • Local authorities, housing associations

Why should you use this standard? 

It gives the most up-to-date requirements for specifying external timber cladding, including performance requirements and moisture content.  It applies to external cladding functioning as a rain screen and covers boards, shingles and shakes, and wood-based panels.

BS 8605-1:2014 complements harmonized standards BS EN 14915 and BS EN 13986. It lists all performance criteria that might apply to external timber cladding in the UK and provides a method of specifying those requirements that are outside the scope of those standards, but which are relevant to the UK’s climate and construction practices.

This standard also specifies characteristics of components at the time they are transferred to the purchaser.
