Our Balau decking is our most popular hardwood decking choice due to it’s striking looks and hard wearing durability.
Balau is otherwise known as Yellow Balau (although not yellow in colour) or Bangkirai.
Due to it’s inherent strength and durability, Balau is used in many areas of the world in heavy construction, marine and boat building, however in the UK it is almost entirely imported for decking. It is air dried and naturally insect and rot resistant. Expect to see colour variations from board to board, this is part of the beauty of the wood.
We recommend you use Osmo Bangkirai / Balau Oil to enhance the colour, for optimum results oil the decking annually. Over time, boards will begin to fade to a shade of grey.
You will also find a full range of treated softwood timber, screws and hangers on our website, should you need these materials to build your deck frame.
