Grown along the east coast of Australia, Blackbutt is a Class 1 rated hardwood that can withstand harsh weather conditions. Blackbutt decking meets the Australian standards of fire resistance – gaining its name from the blackened base of the tree following a bushfire.
Blackbutt has a high density, at around 900kg per cubic metre, giving it natural resistance to termites. It’s praised for its strength and durability, making it an ideal choice for building a timber deck that will stand the test of time.
The colour of Blackbutt varies from golden yellow to pale brown. In rare cases, a pinkish tone can be seen throughout. Blackbutt has a straight grain, even colour and even texture – giving it a unique and striking finish.
Blackbutt is a great all-rounder, as it can be used for structural, interior and exterior projects. It has a quick growth rate, which makes it one of the most readily available species of timber in Australia. Blackbutt decking has an eye-catching finish when polished, stained or painted – although it can be prone to surface checking when painted.
