IPE

THE KING
OF HARDWOODS

Slowly grown in South America, and carefully harvested by our team, Ipe is an incredible choice for the outdoors for several reasons. One of the best reasons is its extreme resistance to insects and the elements, which gives it an impressive lifespan of up to 75 years

ITS ROYAL STATUS IS BASED ON:
  • Its natural resistance and durability properties against rot, decay, and insects.
  • The exceptional lifespan of over 50 years.
  • Its resistance to insects, rot, and fungi.
  • Its Class A rating for fire, comparable to that of steel and concrete. 
  • Its elegant appearance.
  • Superior weather resistant properties
  • Its wide variety of applications because of its stiffness, strength, and extreme durability.
