CedarSafe Cedar panels
We are pleased to present this information on CedarSafe Cedar panels, as shown and described by the manufacturer. Because we have not tested this product, we are unable to endorse it or provide you with any additional information.
CedarSafe cedar panels are a decorative, practical, and inexpensive closet lining to help keep clothes safe from moths, mildew, and silverfish. After installation, the closet has a "finished" look and smells like a conifer forest.
Cedar liner panels are made of pressed pieces of Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar wood chips that make up 1/4-inch thick 4x8-foot panels that are ideal for lining storage areas such as attics, chests, or closets. Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar has been proven in an Auburn University study to repel silverfish that eat cotton, linen, rayon and book bindings. The cedar also repels roaches and clothes moths. Clothes moth larvae feed on wool, leather, paper, cotton, linen, silk, and synthetic fibers. A closet lined with Aromatic Eastern Red Cedar will protect your important items from damaging pests while they're being stored.
When the wood is cut to make these panels, no scrap goes to waste. CedarSafe's Eastern Red Cedar logs are select cut by small crews in the Midwest and Eastern areas of the U.S. where they grow. Any log waste from the company's sawmill is recycled into mulch for landscaping. Other waste is used as fuel in the heaters that dry the panels' chips. Additional sawdust and moulding shavings from the sawmill are processed to extract cedar wood oil for the fragrance industry. Finally, any remaining wood residue is used as boiler fuel to generate the steam used to process this oil as well as for space heating in the winter.
Cedar mouldings are also available to trim the overall project for a great-looking finished project. CedarSafe Cedar panels are designed for both consumers and professionals and can be purchased at most major home improvement stores or lumberyards.
