Plantation Teak - Hardwood

 

We generally use plantation teak which means it is grown in a special plantation where the timber is fast grown especially for the timber trade. It has the same properties as forest grown timber but benefits from being kinder to the environment.

Tectona grandis
Family: Verbenaceae

Distribution: Indigenous to Burma & India & S.E Asia. Introduced into East & West Africa and the Caribbean & Indonesia & now available in plantation grown timber.

General Description: The true Teak of Burma is a medium golden brown colour without markings, but most other teak is rich brown with darker chocolate-brown markings. Indian Teak is wavy grained & mottled but generally straight to wavy grained, coarse textured, uneven, oily to the touch & sometimes with a white glistening deposit. Weight varies from 610-690kg/m3 (38-43lb/ft3), average 650kg/m3 (40lb/ft3); specific gravity .65.

Seasoning: Dries well but rather slowly. Variations in drying rates can occur in individual pieces. Standing trees are girdled & left to dry out for three years before felling. There is small movement in service.

Durability: A tough durable hardwood which is specifically used for exterior use & is sometimes used in the construction of our hardwood conservatories & orangeries.

Uses: Extensively used throughout the world for ship & boat building for decking, rails, hatches etc. Furniture & cabinet making, interior & exterior joinery, flooring, exterior structural work & garden furniture. Also for acid resistant purposes such as chemical vats, fume ducts and laboratory benches.
