Kwila / Merbau Decking

decking_bannerKwila/Merbau is a high quality, strong, durable hardwood. It has also become popular around the world where it is in demand for high quality applications including flooring, decking, stair material, ballustrades, handrails and posts, indoor and outdoor furniture, boat building and general construction.

The timber is either a yellowish-brown or dark brown in colour, darkening with age to a deep reddish brown. Contrary to popular belief, Kwila/Merbau is not very durable in the ground, as the extractives, which contribute toward its durability, are prone to leaching. This leaching process leads to the timber ‘bleeding’ and imparting a dark brown stain mars the contact surface. A sealant should be applied to the timber if it is to be in ‘contact’ situations eg. window sills, when exposed to the weather.

Kwila has a durability rating ‘above ground’ of 2 with a life expectancy of between 15 and 40 years. As a kiln dried product, Kwila is naturally resistant to fungus and insects such as termites. Kwila products should be oiled 2-3 times per year out in the elements and 1-2 application per year under cover.
