POC decking is exceptionally strong for a softwood. In tests for crushing strength, bending, shearing strength and side hardness, Port Orford outperformed all other cedars and Redwood. Specifically 45% stronger than Redwood or Western Red Cedar in impact bending and 30% stronger in crushing strength.
Ipe picture gallery Premium carbide tipped saw blades and high quality drills are recommended for smooth cuts due to the hardness of Ipe. Pre-drill a pilot hole and countersink when using screws as fasteners. End sealing: ends should be sealed immediately after cutting using a clear aqueous wax end sealer to reduce checking.
Redwood It is known for its easy maintenance and beautiful color: a deep reddish brown that darkens with age. Redwood is most often used for applications where high moisture levels are a problem for other types of wood.
AYC decking stands up to constant wear and load impacts without forming ridges or splitting. It does not splinter, so it is also used on stadium seating.
