This really is the Rolls Royce of decking!
Balau hardwood decking is really suited to a country with a climate like ours as it is so hard-wearing, knot-free and very pleasing to the eye with its different shades of orangey browns.
Balau has anti-slip properties which were originally used for marine decks where water was a problem and also has a natural built-in resistance to fungal decay and insect attack.
Balau is a tropical hardwood. This is a very tight grained wood, hence very hard wearing and very durable.
This Balau has waxed ends to stop splitting and is also kiln-dried. Don't let anyone tell you this isn't important with Balau, it's critical! Beware of other outlets selling 'Sub-Standard' Balau!
Spax woodscrews should also be used to fasten it down as they will help to keep any splitting to a minimum.
Oh, and one last thing, please don't let your decking 'die'. You're about to spend good money on your Hardwood Balau, you really MUST oil it. Using Ronseal Decking Oil will really bring the beautiful colours out of the wood and it won't break the bank!

You can now order a sample and we will endeavour to get it to you overnight.
Please Note: We recommend that you keep your Balau dry and away from moisture until it is time to lay it, as timber is a natural product and is subject to continual movement when exposed to atmospheric conditions.
This may be evident with splits, shakes or warping. These are not considered to be a fault or defect. Please allow a small percentage for waste.
In most cases, however, small imperfections are generally considered a typical feature of the species.
