Although Ironbark decking is relatively new to Western Australia, it has quickly become a popular choice for residential and commercial applications for several reasons:
Ironbark decking is unique in its colour variation ranging from light browns through to dark reds. This gives the timber and finished deck character. We can offer both Red and Gray Ironbark.
As a Class 1 Australian Hardwood, Ironbark is considered to be one of the hardest and strongest timbers available throughout Australia. This makes it an ideal choice for high volume commercial applications such as pubs, playgrounds and boardwalks.
Ironbark has an inherent resistance to fire and the sapwood is not susceptible to borers while the heartwood is Class 3 resistant.
Majority of the Ironbark sourced by WA Timber Decking Professionals is from Ironwood – Australia’s leading supplier and miller of recycled and reclaimed Australian hardwood timber. Ironwood’s reclaimed timber comes from old forest logs which maximise carbon storage and minimise wastage.
WATDP can also source Red and Gray Ironbark from environmentally sustainable plantations on the East Coast of Australia.
Iron Deck and Park Deck are two unique options of Ironwood Ironbark decking that are derived from reclaimed timber being exposed to the sun for several weeks. A natural timber accelerated ageing serum is applied on a daily basis and the face of the wood is finally wire brushed.
The finished product offers a unique weathered look with greater structural integrity, slip resistance and requires virtually no maintenance.
Ironbark will remain durable and achieve a unique weathered look with virtually no maintenance. If you are seeking a more polished finish, Ironbark should be sealed approximately every 6 months depending on its level of exposure to the elements.
