Teak

Grows In: Burma and Indonesia
Hardness: 1000

DESCRIPTION
Teak has been prized for centuries as one of the worlds most durable and stable woods for outdoor use. Traditionally used on boats and in outdoor furniture, Teak has also been widely used for flooring. Teak has high bending strength in the air-dry condition (about 12 percent moisture content). It compares favorably with American oak (Quercus), which also has high bending strength. Compression strength parallel to grain in the air-dry condition is also high. Hardness is rated as medium, and weight and density are high.

COLOUR RANGE
Teak exhibits a wide range of colors when fresh cut, from pale yellows to orange browns with darker striping, all of which mellows into medium brown tones. Most other heartwood found in this species is dark golden yellow. There is moderate to high color variation between boards.

COLOUR CHANGE
Teak undergoes an extreme degree of color change with pronounced color change from the highly variegated coloring found in material fresh sanded which then darkens into rich brown with darker, chocolate-brown markings upon exposure.

IDEAL USE
Teak may be used residentially wherever the distinguished look of one of the world’s most prized woods is desired.
