Red Ironbark Overlay Flooring

Red Ironbark presents as a stunning array of colours, ranging from light chocolate to darker reds and browns

Red Ironbark is more reddish than Grey Ironbark which is brown. The texture is moderately coarse and even, with interlocking grain.  It is a premium native hardwood that has always been a highly regarded timber. Indigenous Australians use it to make spear throwers and boil its bark for treating sores.
It is a particularly hard, strong and durable timber, with a broad range of applications, due to its resistance to lyctid borers and termites.

Ironbarks are a very characteristic group of trees, aptly named after their thick, compact and hard bark. The commercially available Ironbark species are divided into Grey and Red Ironbarks. Red Ironbark, E. Drepanophylla, is found from northern New South Wales to Bundaberg, Queensland. It is found in scattered patches as far north as the Atherton Tableland. Grey Ironbark, E. Paniculata, is found in New South Wales only from Bega to Coffs Harbour.

A beautiful dense and durable timber at 1120 kilograms per cubic metre, it is perfect for flooring, decking and cladding with a Janka rating of 14.0
