The superior equivalent to Balau decking in our humble opinion. A dense, durable timber from South America. It can be left to age and go grey, just like balau, but will not splinter and move as much. The colour is a rich yellow - brown, which initially darkens with sunlight and then fades to grey if left untreated.
It is available only in decking form and not structural sizes due to the South American laws on timber export. The sizes it comes in are 90mm x 19mm and 140mm x 21mm in lengths from 1.2m up to 5.7m.
