Timber Decking

Timber Decking is a contemporary and practical addition to a home.

WR Timbers supplies a range of quality hardwood kiln dried decking timbers for all applications.

As a Deck is going to be exposed to the weather it is essential that a suitable type of timber is chosen for both the decking boards and the structural supports.

A Hardwood is preferable as it has the durability to stand the test of time. Australian species are ideally suited to Australian conditions.

Our timber experts are able to advise and help with any decking project whether it be for domestic or commercial use.

Merbau Timber Decking

Merbau is an oil-based hardwood timber, commonly grown in Phillipines, Fiji, Indonesia, and other parts of South East Asia. It is most often used for outdoor decking, but is a versatile timber that has many other applications, such as fencing, engineering, construction, outdoor furniture or decorative features.

Merbau has a yellowish/orange-brown when initially cut, but turns darker with age to a more reddish-brown. Grain is variable, while texture is coarse but even.

  • Natural, versatile product from a renewable resource
    The merbau wood naturally contains oil to ensure your decking looks beautiful for longer.

    The timber has a high resistance to splintering, shrinkage and rotting when elevated off the ground, and looks beautiful with a stain or polish finish. With proper installation and maintenance you can expect Merbau decking to have a very long life span, between 25-50 years.
