How is Ipe Wood used?
Here are the most popular uses for our Ipe Decking and Ipe Lumber. When you are a seller of an unfinished material like Ipe Wood, it is sometimes hard for people to understand how it is used beyond decking and what types of final products it is used for. Here is a list of some of our most popular final products that use our Ipe Decking and Ipe Lumber.
Ipe Decking is still our number one use for Ipe Wood. It is the gold standard when it comes to natural hardwood decking and is extremely popular. It lasts an extremely long time and weathers amazingly. Ipe had a fire rating that is the same as steel, and it has extremely high crush resistance. It is great for a long lasting residential, commercial, or public usage. It is the gold standard for decking that all other woods and synthetics are compared against.
2. Outdoor structures
Ipe Wood is extremely popular for usage in Outdoor Structures including Pergolas, Trellises, Shelters, Docks, Boardwalks, Fencing, and More. The same properties that make Ipe the optimum wood for decking also make it a great choice for long lasting Outdoor Structures. It also can match other Ipe items in your landscape to provide visual consistency. Our Ipe Beams and Timbers are often used for major structural peices in these types of projects.
Ipe siding has become an extremely popular choice for residential and commercial buildings. It can work for both traditional wood siding or as a natural element in modern architecture. Premium Ipe siding offers a featured architectural element while lasting many years in service due to its superior technical properties. Siding made out of naturally durable hardwoods have proven themselves time and again. By using a 100% natural wood product, you can recycle and reuse the product at the end of its life cycle. We offer our Ipe Siding in Shiplap, Tongue and Groove, Rainscreen, and Bevel siding profiles.
While Ipe is traditionally known as a wood for long lasting outdoor structures, it is also very popular as interior flooring because of it’s rich coloring, extreme hardness, and very long life as a interior flooring option. Many flooring companies label Ipe Flooring as Brazilian Walnut for marketing reasons. Ipe Flooring is made from our Ipe lumber since it needs to be kiln dried, so that it works well in a climate controlled interior of a home. We can mill custom flooring and also can supply flooring manufacturers with wholesale quantities. We can also provide pre-milled Ipe from the mills in South America.
Ipe Outdoor Furniture has become a very popular alternative to Teak because of its ability to weather for 25+ years in the outdoors. Also, Ipe Furniture looks great to go along with your Ipe decking or Ipe outdoor structures. We can provide our Ipe Wood for manufacturers of outdoor furniture at wholesale rates. Also, for commercial or public usage Ipe benches are extremely popular because of their durability and resistance to abuse.
