TECHNICAL FEATURES OF THE TYPES OF WOOD

INDONESIAN TEAK

Its color ranges from light yellow to brownish red. Teak’s natural oil content makes it extremely strong. It is therefore used for medium/low foot-traffic floorings and for residential environments. Teak timber is particularly valued for its durability and water resistance, and is used for boat building, exterior construction and outdoor flooring. Over time teak can mature to a grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight. Treat it with oil and keep it constantly maintained to slow down this color variation.

IPE'

Its color ranges from brown to olive green. This is the most commonly used wood in the world of decking and is suitable for small to medium or large areas, subject to low/high foot-traffics for private, public, commercial and maritime settings. Its characteristics and properties also make it suitable for use as cladding for buildings. Over time, ipé can mature to a grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight and inclement weather. Treat it with oil and keep it constantly maintained to slow down this color variation.


 



THERMO-TREATED ASH FSC

Thermo-Treated Ash, after it is completed dried, is subjected to a heat treatment that brings it to a temperature of about 180° with a final moisture content of about 5%. Following the treatment, without any chemical additive, only with heat, the material turns brown and has an exceptional dimensional stability. Its durability characteristics are also improved to offer outdoor performance. After the heat treatment, the wood natural molecules change, the sugar contained in the fibers crystalizes and the wood is therefore more resistant to moisture and to insects and to fungus. To maintain these properties and prevent cracks and fissures you should treat the flooring with oil after laying, in order to nourish the crystalized wood fibers. Thermo-Treated Ash can be used to create small to medium sized floors and decks, subject to low foot traffic, for use in residential and private settings. We recommend installation of the boards with the special stainless steel hidden clips. Even if thermo-treated, Ash can mature to a grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight and inclement weather.

TEAK

With typical color shade from yellow to brown, it is oly to the touch. Teak is usually used in medium-low traffic spaces. Now it is available with the new modular pre-assembled tile, the perfect solution for a do-it yourself laying, complete of special “start” and “end” tiles. Over time teak can mature to a grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight. Treat it with oil and keep it constantly maintained to slow down this color variation.


BANGKIRAI YELLOW BALAU

Generally used for outdoor floorings, Bangkirai comes from the plants of Shorea Leavis, which live mainly in Asia, Borneo, Sumatra and Kalimantan. Bangkirai was discovered and used first by the Dutch colonies in Indonesia, who understood its characteristics and its suitability to outdoor environments. In Italy it is used primarily for private and public outdoor floorings and for the covering in floating docks. Due to its strong inner tensions, we recommend installation of the boards with A2 stainless steel visible screws. It presents different grains and a wide color range. Over time, bangkirai can mature to an even grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight. Treat it with oil and keep it constantly maintained with oil sealers to slow down this color variation.o.

RADIATA PINE

It comes with white-yellowish sapwood and brown-reddish heartwood. There may be some resin, with fiber often diverted and irregular. It is used for outdoor floorings, terraces, boardwalks in rustic environments. Installation is carried out with A2 stainless steel visible screws. Over time, pine can mature to a grey finish, especially when exposed to sunlight and inclement weather. Treat it with oil and keep it constantly maintained with oils to slow down this color variation. Over time, the special oil natural solvents help remove the resin.

 

 

SUGGESTIONS

Before installation, it is advisable the keep the material securely strapped on pallets and possibly stored in a shaded area, protected from inclement weather. If you install the IPÈ boards on a poolside or next to light-color stones, you should wash the wood befre laying it to avoid staining the delicate surfaces with its tannines. Make sure that you saw the wood at a proper distance not to stain the surfaces with the sawdust.


TECHNICAL NOTES

After laying the thermo-treated Ash, we strongly recommend immediate treatment with outdoor oil-base preservative and proper maintenance.
