Padauk hardwood is a stunningly beautiful long lasting and extremely durable West African timber that does not require any treatment, and is a very durable classification timber giving good longevity and stability.
Padauk timber is a consistent red brown colour throughout, and all timbers will naturally weather down evenly over a short period of time to a stunning silver grey colour.
Pigmented oils and wood stains can be applied prior to installation to prevent unsightly staining due to rainwater, although this is for cosmetic purposes only.
We recommend that advice is taken for paint applications on Padauk hardwood products, as they need to be de-greased due to the natural tannins within the timbers.
Matching Padauk gate posts are available, which are extremely durable, long lasting and exceptionally stable with minimal shaking.
Padauk timber is sourced from fully sustainable sources and carries FSC certification.
