Bangkirai, or Yellow Balau is a tree species coming from Indonesian forests. We have been importing it for several decades for outdoor use, as it is abundant and naturally very sustainable.
The majority of our timber comes specifically from an FSC-certified forest concession located in the north-east of the island of Borneo.
This durable species has good characteristics for all outdoor wood designs and especially, for deck boards. It is dense and shock resistant. In order to control stability as much as possible, we dry all our boards artificially before planing them. This results in a better-quality product and limits deformation to a minimum.
The colours of Bangkirai vary according to the wood, it comes in various shades from pink to pinkish brown.
Bangkirai wood is graying due to weather influences. Do you want to keep the original color? Then treat the beams with Osmo – Clear UV Protection Oil.
