Ipe Decking Always Here!
We are a direct importer of Ipe (pronounced ee-pay). We carry it full time.
Never have so many people wanted the most coveted deck in the world than now! After many years, the world now knows that there is NOTHING on this planet that is as good as Ipe for an exterior or covered deck for longevity, strength, fire rating, appearance, and sustainability.
Mukulungu a/k/a African Redwood
Some facts on mukulungu decking:
–It is the best decking originating out of Africa.
–It mostly goes into Europe where it is highly prized!
–It competes with the best decking in the world – Ipe.
-It is well respected by all due to its high silica content and uniform color as well as longevity and density!
–It is referred to here in the USA as “African Redwood“ but has nothing in common with the redwood we know other than for its longevity and similar color.
–It is also setting itself up in Europe as the likely alternative to Ipe if Ipe is ever banned!
It’s one of the few serious decks that has a monochromatic color that does not vary.

Ipe Decking for Docks
Kabukalli (Goupia Glabra).
Kabukalli is similar to Ipe but not as expensive and has tremendous density and longevity. It is certified FSC! A Legit source and great provenance.
Properties/Appearance: Exceptionally high strength. Highly resistant to insects, decay, fire and marine organisms. Dries slowly. Checking, warping and splitting may occur especially if not seasoned properly. A UV protective finish minimalizes checking and splitting. Blunting effect on tools moderate to high. Planing is difficult. Glues well. Pre-drill before screwing. Polishes satisfactorily.
Uses: A heavy hard timber suitable for exacting conditions. Excellent for rafters, general construction, ship building, keels, pilings, piers, decking, hand rails, flooring, and raised beds.
