Exotic Hardwoods

Dark Red Meranti is prized by European architects for high-class joinery applications. These species provide the ultimate combination of beauty, versatility, performance and economy for decking and related products. They mill to a superior surface, work easily, absorb and hold finish deeply and evenly. The timber ages to a smooth surface, with less checking (cracking) than other harder, heavier, and more expensive species.

Ipe’ is often the species of choice when it comes to hardwood decking. However, Ipe’ is also utilized in the construction of docks, marinas, boardwalks, and the manufacture of outdoor furniture. Ipe’ decking and accessories are noted for their stability, strength, durability, and inherent resistance to decay, wet conditions and insect infestation. Ipe’ also carries a Class A fire rating, the same rating that is given to steel and concrete. Kiln dried (KD) as opposed to air dried (AD) Ipe’ decking components are stocked and distributed by Hood Distribution – The McQuesten Group. KD Ipe’ reduces the tendency of the material to shrink, warp, cup, or mildew in the dark, damp areas of application. The heartwood is olive brown to black and contrasts dramatically in color to the yellow-gray to gray-brown sapwood.Ipe’ decking will gradually age from its natural rich red-brown color to a fine silver-grey. It will fully maintain its structural integrity as it ages. To retain the original rich red-brown color, we recommend a high quality penetrating oil finish with UV blockers to be applied.
