Known for its unique colour range (from a light red or brown, to a darker, richer red or brown), its strength and durability, Jarrah is an excellent choice for exterior projects, such as decking and screening. Jarrah timber tends to have a moderately course and even textured grain, which can be interlocked or wavy, to create interesting textural effects. Some boards can contain streaks or gum pockets as a naturally-occurring defect.
Along with its unique colouration, strength and durability, a natural resistance to rot, termites and extreme weather conditions, Jarrah is an excellent choice for decking. Its high density also makes it relatively resistant to fire and can achieve a BAL19 rating. Jarrah can be machined or turned and also accepts oil, stain and polish well.
Strength and durability, a natural resistance to rot, termites and extreme weather conditions along with its unique colouration make Jarrah an excellent choice for exterior projects, such as screening. Jarrah timber’s moderately textured grain creates interesting visual effects which add to its architectural and aesthetic appeal.
