The timber that we use broadly classified into two groups – softwoods and hardwoods. This can be confusing because the terms do not relate to the relative hardness of the wood but to the type of tree from which it comes. Softwood species come from evergreen coniferous trees, hardwood timber decking paving slabs from broadleaved trees. Within each group there are many different species of wood. Some are suitable for decking, some are not.
The key factor in selecting wood for use out-of-doors is durability – its ability to resist the conditions that give rise to decay. Some species of wood have a natural ability to resist decay completely; others have varying degrees of natural durability and may require treatment.
Our hardwood timber decking paving slabs are derived from species of hardwood trees that are classified as being naturally “very durable”.
The rich attractive colours of some hardwoods greatly add to the appeal of hardwood timber decking paving slabs. Naturally durable hardwoods are usually higher in density than softwood and their impact and abrasion resistant properties are reasons why they are used on commercial projects that have a lot of heavy use. Our hardwood timber decking paving slabs are naturally resistant to fungal growth and offer naturally superior levels of durability and wear resistance, without any additional chemical treatment, making hardwoods the ideal material for use in the construction of decking and outdoor furniture and structures.
Properly constructed, hardwood timber decking paving slabs provide a very high level of durability. Under normal use, hardwood timber decking paving slabs will provide an ultimate life of 25 years or longer. This performance is reflected in the long-term warranties that are offered by leading suppliers of decking components. With only nominal care and maintenance with treatment oils and finishes, our hardwood timber decking paving slabs retain their natural beauty year after year.
