Kwila / Merbau Decking

decking_bannerKwila/Merbau is a high quality, strong, durable hardwood. It has also become popular around the world where it is in demand for high quality applications including flooring, decking, stair material, balustrades, handrails and posts, indoor and outdoor furniture, boat building and general construction.

The timber is either a yellowish-brown or dark brown in colour, darkening with age to a deep reddish brown. Contrary to popular belief, Kwila/Merbau is not very durable in the ground, as the extractives, which contribute toward its durability, are prone to leaching. This leaching process leads to the timber ‘bleeding’ and imparting a dark brown stain mars the contact surface. A sealant should be applied to the timber if it is to be in ‘contact’ situations eg. window sills, when exposed to the weather.

Kwila has a durability rating ‘above ground’ of 2 with a life expectancy of between 15 and 40 years. As a kiln dried product, Kwila is naturally resistant to fungus and insects such as termites. Kwila products should be oiled 2-3 times per year out in the elements and 1-2 application per year under cover.

UNPARALLELED BEAUTY: TREX TRANSCEND COLOURS

Transcend decking’s deep timber-grain pattern and luxury colours create a premium, ageless look that leaves other composites in the dust. Rich, fade-resistant colours mimic the look of natural timber while keeping maintenance to a minimum. Trex Transcend decking colours hail from two different colour families: Premium Tropicals offer an exotic look, while Classic Earth Tones lend a cosy touch to any garden landscape.

HASSLE FREE

No sanding. No staining. No painting. No kidding. (Not to mention simple soap-and-water cleaning.) While traditional timber decks require a lot of work, Transcend decking does not require any of the time-consuming prep work before or after installation. Transcend decking is made with minimal upkeep in mind, so it’s easy to keep your deck beautiful for years to come.

FADE, STAIN, SCRATCH AND MOULD RESISTANT

Transcend maintains its vibrant colour and luxurious finish–come scorching sun or red-wine spill–thanks to its unyielding, three-side shell protection…and our 25-Year Limited Residential Fade & Stain Warranty. Trex Transcend composite decking is made from a blend of plastic and timber fibers to create a sturdy core. This core is then encased in a synthetic shell on three sides, which protects it from the elements and offers resistance to fading, scratches, or developing mould or mildew.

A GREEN DECK

Made from an innovative blend of reclaimed timber and plastic film, Transcend decking makes use of earth-friendly manufacturing processes, free from the use of harmful chemicals. Wherever possible, we use post-consumer and post-industrial materials. In addition to our drive to create greener materials, we also conduct supply chain assessments to be sure our partners share our approach to ethical and responsible green business practices. See how using a 95% recycled board (that’s almost the whole thing) makes you feel about the great outdoors.
