Choose Your Timber

  • Iroko Hardwood
    Iroko is a very beautiful, durable African hardwood often used in the boat building industry. It varies in colour from light brown oak to dark brown with irregular shading. We recommend using oil with UV protection such as Treatex or OSMO on this hardwood and recommend re-coating when necessary. If left untreated, it will turn a silver grey over time.

  • Idigbo Hardwood
    Idigbo is an African hardwood and has a pale natural light oak colour making it very attractive. It takes stain very well and is available in a variety of different shades, from a light oak to a dark oak or teak stain.

  • Scandinavian Redwood
    For our softwood gates, we use Scandinavian redwood. This is a light coloured timber that has character. It will however need regular treatment. It has tight knots and takes treatment and stain well.
