About bangkirai wood
We import Bangkirai terraces in high Premium grading and industrial dried KD for best possible stability and quality. Bangkirai decking is one of the most widespread wood species used for exterior floors worldwide. Due to its durability and high hardness, Bangkirai wood is used not only for wooden terraces but also for heavily loaded building structures such as bridges, columns, railway sleepers, seaside dock structures, for production, roof structures, houses, columns, piers, marinas, etc.
Color and weathering
Light brown to yellow-brown with different shades. The color differences between the individual pieces of floorboards are natural and usual. The wood darkens in the air and changes color to gray-silver over time. The time of graying depends on the method of treatment, the location of the climate, the exposure of individual pieces to rain and other weather conditions.
Natural oil content
Bangkirai wood contains a natural dye that can leach out of the wood for some time, for example due to rain, in the form of a brown liquid. Therefore, avoid contact with plasters, bricks and other coverings or floors that could be colored. Drain rainwater through a pipe system or sewer, if the installation is carried out on floors or balconies. Use only special high-strength stainless steel screws for mounting. Avoid contact of wood with iron objects that create blue-black stains, as well as substances and objects that cause corrosion. Over time, this tree will show a change in the color of the gray shade due to UV sunlight. This phenomenon manifests itself equally in all tree species. If you want to restore the original color of the wood, use a professional Saicos dehumidifier (new window) according to the technical sheet. Then treat with a suitable protective oil paint.
Bangkirai wood shows a medium degree of stability and volume changes of wood with a high susceptibility to cracking. Furthermore, the wood shows a medium degree of deflection of the curve and the use of a wrench is necessary during assembly. Small growth defects can occur in the wood. Necessity of pre-drilling holes for screws. Wood that is exposed to outdoor climatic influences changes in volume, dries out or swells according to climate change. Naturally, wood can have differences in width, due to the different expansion between the radial and tangential wood structure, during moisture compensation. Furthermore, cracks can occur in the wood, also cracks, especially at the ends of the boards due to drying, changing depending on the relative humidity or changes in climatic conditions, the occurrence of small holes after wood-destroying insects. In addition, troughing and twisting can occur with wood.
Knots and other natural features of wood
Knots and eyes, healthy or partially fused, cracks around the knots, marrow run-in, resin channels, marbling and other natural features are an integral part of the wood. Although tropical trees in particular tend to have a low number of knots, their number and the occurrence of the above traits are allowed.
When storing wood before and during installation, make sure that the wood is not exposed to direct sunlight, rain, snow or other external influences. It was well covered or best stored in covered unheated areas, with relative humidity values equal to the outdoor humidity. At the same time, sufficient interleaving of the wood with spacers was ensured, enabling air ventilation and prevention of the formation of mold. Failure to follow these recommendations may result in twisting, deformation or other changes to the wood during storage.
Regularly clean the terrace from dirt, soil, sediment and pollen. This prevents macropore impurities from penetrating the wood. Under objects such as parasol stands, flower pots, bowls, mats, under which water and moisture settle, there is no possibility of fast and natural drying of the wood. Long-term moisture and dirt stains can form under these objects. Therefore, carry these objects standing on the terrace from time to time or ensure that there is natural drying and ventilation of the air under them. This will prevent the formation of dark spots on the wood.
