Hardwood IPE Decking (90mm x 19mm)
IPE, Truly The King Of Decking. Simply Stunning!
Ipe Decking has a rich dark brown colour with beautiful grain characteristics. Also known as Brazilian Walnut or Iron-wood, an Ipe deck will gradually age to a lustrous silver-grey if left untreated. It can be oiled or stained to retain its rich brown colour.
Ipe, prounounced "eepay" Is the strongest and most resilient natural untreated decking material available on the market today. An increasingly popular choice for both commercial and residential decking; it truly is the best decking product available in terms of strength, stability, durability, and natural resistance to decay, wet conditions, and infestation by termites and wood borers of all types.
Our Ipe contains no harmful chemicals and can be used near water with no worry of contamination.
Ipe Decking has a class A fire rating, the same rating given to concrete and steel.
Ipe Decking is an economical natural alternative to other decking options when the entire life cycle of the deck or outdoor project is considered. Its rich color and natural grain is breathtaking and is certain to provide a lifetime of beauty.
Ipe Decks will maintain their structural integrity as they age. To retain the rich brown colour, we recommend a high quality penetrating oil finish. Regular cleaning and reapplication of an oil finish will ensure that the wood retains its beauty for many years.
Spax woodscrews should also be used to fasten it down as they will help to keep any splitting to a minimum.
