Description

Pacific Jarrah is known for its superior characteristics and properties and is surprisingly easy to work as a heavy wood and despite its density. It machines and finishes to a very smooth surface. The timber takes a fine polish and has the appearance of walnut. Pacific Jarrah decking is incredibly versatile. Its durability makes it a natural choice for commercial projects, such as high-traffic, large-scale beach piers or boardwalks, or even public benches. However, its beauty, strength and low needs for maintenance also make it a leading option for residential decking.
