BEST DECKING MATERIAL
Ipé wood is an environmentally responsible choice which naturally resists rot, decay, insects and mold without the use of toxic chemicals commonly found in other decking products. Its hardness, strength and beauty make it perfect for exterior wood decking and siding applications. It is naturally fire resistant and has been awarded an 'A1' rating in fire resistance.
Our Ipé wood is harvested from naturally sustainable forests only. It has very high wear durability in daily use and is resistant to splintering and checking. Its longevity passes all other decking material choices, woods and composites included.
