Merbau, as it is commonly known, is mostly distributed from Malaysia and Indonesia
Its heartwood has a light yellow-brown colour that darkens to a rich red-brown upon exposure, with a slight yellow fleck in the grain.
Merbau is classed as a hardwood that has a moderate density and a medium quality for steam bending. This timber can be worked with hand tools with a moderate blunting effect.
It generally dries well, without much degradation and minimal shrinkage.
Merbau flooring is suitable for all domestic and commercial projects, and is a very popular species, commonly used for high-end refurbishments in place of Mahogany or Sapele.
