Pacific Kwila Decking


Pacific Kwila (Merbau) is a hardwood ideally suited to the manufacture of outdoor decking. Not only does it have a beautiful grain and appearance, it is regarded as one of the world's most durable timbers.
An abundance of natural oil in the wood ensures your outdoor setting looks good, is easy to maintain, and lasts for many years . . . in all conditions!
Pacific Kwila is almost double the hardness (1925 vs. 690 on the Janka Scale) of Yellow Pine. Pacific Kwila is naturally insect/termite resistant, is not prone to splinter and check(split) as it ages, and is highly resistant to decay when fully exposed to weather if clear of ground and has good air circulation.
In other words, Pacific Kwila:

Is more than double the hardness of standard pressure treated pine
Is not affected by termites or insects
Does not typically splinter due to its natural grain texture
Doesn't decay if given a minimal amount of air circulation
Does not require regular sealing to protect it
