Why Ipé is so special ?
Ipé is an exotic wood species which grows mainly in Central and South America. It has a fine texture which appears oily. You won’t find any finer and more richly distinctive hardwood decking on the market. The Atlantic City Boardwalk, the outdoor walkways at the Treasure Island Hotel in Las Vegas, and those of the Boardwalk Hotel in Disney World are all testimonials to the beauty and durability of Ipé. Its resistance to mold, rot, insects and durability has made Ipé a benchmark material for all exterior hardwoods. It is such a resistant and durable species that Ipe wood has long been used for railroad ties, truck flooring, industrial flooring and boardwalks.
Ipé is the ultimate solution for those who want the best and most durable outdoor design. Ipé is the product on the market that will last the longest. Being a high density and harder wood Ipe is not only the best material for outdoors, it is unique in its coloration, character marks and graining variations.
