Hardwood Timbers
There are several hardwood timbers to choose from, all come under the "Very Durable" timber classification and offer similar benefits in that they are extremely hard wearing and low maintenance.

  • Iroko is a West African timber, sometimes called "African Teak". It can be slightly inconsistent in colour due to species type but will weather evenly over time.
  • Padauk is another West African timber with a consistent red brown colour weathering to silver grey if not oiled.
  • European Oak a timeless timber which is very consistent in colour with distinctive graining.
  • Chestnut. UK sourced from sustainable coppice woods  this hard wearing timber isn't suitable for boarded gates but is ideal for rustic styles where the timber is "cleft" or " riven"
Hardwood timbers are from sustainable sources and most carry either PEFC or FSC certifications with the exception of Iroko. Even though Iroko is well managed from controlled sustainable forestry, not all supplies are currently certified.
