Our Balau Hardwood Decking Boards are supplied with one ribbed and one smooth face and beveled edges.
Yellow Balau (pronounced Bal-Ow) is a very durable Malaysian hardwood. It is aheavy and strong timber that is well suited to deck construction. It is renowned for having interlocking grain and a fine and even texture. Its colour varies between yellowish-brown, brown and pale reddish-brown.
Please Note: We recommend that you keep your Balau dry and away from moisture until it is time to lay it, as timber is a natural product and is subject to continual movement when exposed to atmospheric conditions.
In most cases, however, small imperfections are generally considered a typical feature of the species. This may be evident with splits, shakes or warping. These are not considered to be a fault or defect. Please allow a small percentage for waste.
