Renowned for its versatility and durability, this Australian hardwood is an excellent choice for both structural and design applications, indoors and out. With a deep red colour, it features a wavy grain pattern – making it an interesting and unique feature in architectural builds.
The heartwood of the Jarrah timber varies between rich reds and deep browns, with an even texture and dark grain running throughout the beams.
Thanks to its stunning finish, we recommend leaving Jarrah the way it is – stains and oils are ideal for bringing out its natural colours and tones, which deepen over time.
One of the most durable hardwoods available, Jarrah’s natural properties ensure it is an excellent option for a wide range of applications. With a high resistance to our harsh Australian weather, rot, termites and bores, it can be used outdoors with confidence. For below ground use, it has a lifespan of up to 25 years, whilst above ground applications can be expected to last up to 40 years.
Thanks to its incredible durability, this timber is ideal for exterior use. Often used for framing, joinery and fencing, it makes an excellent interior flooring option if you or your clients are looking for a feature that stands out from the crowd – expect a truly opulent finish! As a rare timber, it is also used within high-end furniture, turnery and joinery.
We know that part of providing our customers with the highest quality timber means ensuring the timber is sustainably sourced. For that reason, we only stock timber that has been logged in accordance with the Australian Forestry standards – we order Jarrah in on special request, as there are limited supplies available. You can be confident that our Jarrah is perfect for anyone who wants to do their bit for the planet as well as using a rare and attractive timber.
Whilst many people love the look and feel of hardwood timber, they are often concerned that they can’t use it within their home as they live in a bush fire prone area. However, Jarrah is a low combustible material, and can be used in areas where the threat of fire is a concern. It’s perfect for areas that are rated between BAL 12.5 to 19, or even BAL 29 where non-compostable cladding and subfloors are in use.
