Deck profiles include square edged (plain), pencil round edges and reeded faced (ribbed). With less likelihood of splintering at the edges, a pencil rounded finish delivers a softer look than that of square edged lengths. If you’re after grip and increased slip resistance for your deck, reeded facing is your answer.
Greand supplies square-edged, pencil round and reeded in both 85mm or 130mm width decking boards -all sized to minimize the likelihood of cupping and twisting while still allowing easy water run-off.
There’s nothing quite as beautiful or satisfying as walking onto your newly installed jarrah deck. The superior qualities of jarrah make it the perfect decking material for WA’s climate. Highly resistant to weather, rot, termites and borers, jarrah timber decking is also fire resistant. This native dense hardwood has the ability to outlast most other external structures, making jarrah timber decking an ideal choice whether building an outdoor living area, renovating or for commercial use.
The rich mahogany tones of jarrah timber work beautifully coupled with the natural gum veins present in the wood, enhancing each deck with unique character. Care should be taken with installation, however, as with exposure to high moisture areas the gum pockets could open over time becoming problematic. When left untreated and exposed to harsh sun, jarrah timber’s deep red colour fades to grey- giving the deck a rustic aged appeal. Reviving the original colour of the jarrah is easily done with sanding and applying a protective coating or varnish.

New Guinea Teak is a popular timber used in decking, known for its hard-wearing durability and exceptional working properties. New Guinea teak wood, also referred to as Vitex from its scientific name Vitex Cofassus, is sourced from the South West Pacific region; mainly Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
This dense hardwood is olive-grey to medium brown in colour with a distinct ribbon pattern. New Guinea Teak is a naturally oily timber, displaying a slight sheen, can be greasy to the touch and has a leathery odor when freshly sawn.
Fine and even in texture, New Guinea Teak’s appearance is varied having either an interlocked or straight grain. Borer resistant with an above-ground life expectancy of up to 40 years, New Guinea Teak seasons slowly with very little degrading. Works and sands to a smooth finish, New Guinea Teak is ideal for hardwood timber decking and easily accepts stains, gloss, wax, paint and varnish – with stunning results.

Wood you believe… ?
Fire resistance prompted the tree’s common name of Blackbutt. After a bushfire, the tree’s buttress – or butt – is left blackened, hence the name Blackbutt.
