Naturally Durable | Extreme Strength and Hardness

Brazilian Redwood is a highly popularized exotic wood in the exterior decking world particularly due to its warm red to reddish-brown tones and its amazing durability. Much like Ipe, Brazilian Redwood can be left untreated and it will slowly age to a distinctive grayish-silver. To retain the rich red, Brazilian Redwood can be oiled or stained using ultraviolet inhibitors and regular cleanings.

Brazilian Redwood Decking

The Brazilian Redwood tree grows throughout Central and South America, in countries including Colombia, Suriname, French Guiana, Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Panama, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Guyana. The tree can reach heights of up to 150 feet and a diameters of 3 feet. It has a wavy, straight, or interlocked grain and a very fine texture.

With a class A fire rating, Brazilian Redwood decking occupies the same category as steel and concrete. For the sake of clarity, we will repeat that: Brazilian Redwood, a wood, is as fire resistant as steel or concrete. Unlike man-made decking alternatives like composite decking, Brazilian Redwood features 10 times the strength. It can also be used near water without worries of contamination as it contains no harmful chemicals.

Brazilian Redwood Decking

How hard is Brazilian Redwood? It has a Janka Hardness Rating of 3,200lbs. Red Oak has a Janka Hardness Rating of 1290lbs. Brazilian Redwood, by comparison is almost three times as hard. Brazilian Redwood decking also boasts a density of 1,000 kg/m3, which is incredibly dense compared to most American domestic woods. This ensures that it will repel water and other agents that would cause it to become dimensionally unstable. Brazilian Redwood, Ipe, and Cumaru all occupy the top spots as the monsters of natural decking durability.
