Merbau is a highly durable species of hardwood ideally suited to decking and screening. Our high quality premium grade of merbau decking has a very good natural grain running through it, giving it a beautiful appearance.
While most Merbau should still be oiled regularly (depending on the conditions under which it is installed) it is easy to maintain and lasts for many years in all conditions!
Merbau is naturally quite a dark timber, continuing to darken with age.
Merbau is a very dense wood meaning it does have excellent strength and durability. Its density also means it has minimal shrinkage due to weathering and the grain provides high resistance to splintering.
Merbau should be installed so that it continues to be well ventilated over it lifetime, and it does need oiling and maintaing... like all outdoor products. Following these few simple steps means you can expect the timber to have an average life expectancy of 25-50 years.
NOTE: Merbau Decking prices are per lineal metre ($/LM). An order quantity (Qty) of 5 is the equivilant of 5 lineal metre's.
Merbau is supplied in random lengths. However, we are often able to accomodate your needs, please indicate what lengths you desire and we will do our best to accomodate you.
