Why use Jarrah Timber Decking

Jarrah is an excellent choice for outdoor applications as it is naturally resistant to weather, rot and termites. It is also resistant to marine borers, making it a good choice for harsh marine applications such as wharf and bridge construction.

Jarrah’s natural colour ranges from a deep brown-red to blonde. Paired with its durable qualities, this makes it a desirable species for architectural design and decorative elements. It is often used for floorings, linings, furniture, joinery and parquetry.

Jarrah is one of the Australian hardwood species that has natural fire resistant properties (BAL 12.5 & 19), making it an ideal choice for outdoor decking applications where durability and safety are paramount.

Thanks to its durability and strength, jarrah is a highly versatile timber which is used for both structural and design applications. As it is both a highly practical and aesthetic timber, jarrah is an ideal choice for public spaces, commercial buildings and high end residential properties.

Mortlock Timber’s jarrah decking and cladding products are manufactured in Western Australia. As a locally sourced and manufactured timber, jarrah is a sustainable option.
