Ironbark Timber Perth
What is Ironbark?
Grey Ironbark is also known as Eucalyptus Paniculata. It is a hardwood timber that predominantly grows along the East Coast of Australia, from Northern New South Wales to Bundaberg in Queensland.
It is highly desired by Australian builders because of its extreme strength and durability. So much so, that it was the preferred choice by Aborigines when building spears in ancient times. These days, it is used in the construction of bridges, houses, railways sleepers and boats, not to mention decking.
Why Choose Ironbark Timber?
Grey Ironbark Timber has several advantages when compared with other Australian hardwoods including:
Hard, Strong & Heavy
Ironbark timber has a class 1 durability rating and a strength rating of F22 – F42. It is also very heavy at 1120 kilograms per cubic metre which can make it difficult to work with, however it is ideal for structural use.
It typically comes in a light grey or light chocolate colour, however it can also appear in darker reds and browns.
It is also resistant to termites. The sapwood is not susceptible to borers while the heartwood is class 3 resistant.
With little to no maintenance, this timber will achieve a weathered look over time which is a popular recent trend.
Ironbark also meets a BAL 29 rating meaning it has an inherent resistance to fire.
A large portion of the Ironbark supplied by Timber Decking Supply Shed is recycled / reclaimed timber, which leaves a smaller environmental footprint when compared to harvested timber.
Commercial & Architectural Use
Because Ironbark timber is virtually maintenance free and exceptionally hard and strong, it is ideal for high volume commercial applications such as playgrounds, pubs and boardwalks.
