Ipe Specifications

Ipe timbers (Brazilian Walnut) are an olive brown to black often with variegated striping. Ipe Texture is fine to medium, grain straight to irregular. Ipe is one of the hardest woods on the planet and an extremely popular choice for decking in Europe, Asia, and the United States. Ipe beams are perfect for exterior residential and commercial applications. We have sold to Dock Builders, Boardwalks, Pool Builders, Deck builders (of course), and so forth. Ipe can be "finished" with a finisher to maintain its natural color and beauty. Many people allow the silver gray patina to develop as Ipe weathers. Ipe is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attack. Ipe Decking provides a 100+ year lifespan without preservatives! Our Ipe wood is responsibly harvested from managed forest to provide a renewable resource. We abide by the Lacey ACT!!! Unlike Composites, Ipe timbers are a natural resource, that will bio-degrade vs. clog landfills. We ship our Ipe decking products direct to your home or job site.

Ipe Characteristics: Ipe Decking (Brazilian Walnut) is extremely hard, almost 3x harder than Oak. It has a fire rating of A1 (the highest possible, the same as concrete), and is denser than water (it sinks). It is increasingly popular as a decking material due to its insect resistance and durability. Ipe wood products contain no added harmful chemicals so they can be used near water without potential contamination. It is recommended that you always pre-drill before installing screws.

Ipe Color: Ipe (Brazilian Walnut) Decking is medium brown to black. It has occasional greens, reds, and some yellows that show up during a broad expanse of Ipe. Ipe wood's texture is fine to medium, grain straight to irregular. As with all hardwood, there will be variations in color and grain which add to the individual character

Ipe Hardness: Janka hardness: 3680 lb – Wow! That means Ipe harder than Maple (think Louisville Sluggers) and Oak (that 100 year old floor) When working with Ipe, we recommend that you use name brand carbide tipped tools, keep edges sharp, and always pre-drill for screws. Have numerous extra drill bits handy.

Ipe Wood Durability: Ipe is extremely durable to termites and fungus. Ipe hardness provides natural scratch resistance making Ipe wood ideal for exterior decking.

Ipe Timbers Preservation: None Necessary! It will turn to a silver gray with age. A finisher with UV blocking will retain the beautiful brown color.
