Merbau is also known as Kwila is a popular hardwood from South East Asia. Harvested from tropical forests, in the past it has been sourced from forests legally converted to other land uses or where inadequate control has been possible. These days all Merbau brought into Australia is certified with a certification and chain of custody system, including DNA tracking which ensures the wood is now coming from legal and well managed forests.
Merbau is a Yellow-orange, brown that deepens in colour to a reddish brown as it ages, it has an interlocking grain making it a stable hardwood that is also quite resistant to termites.

Abbey Timber carry a large range of Solid sections and Laminated GL13-17 Posts and Beams in stock.
WARNING – Merbau has a high Tannin content and if used near concrete/pavers and other masonry surfaces can leave an unsightly stain on those surfaces. This is known as Tannin Bleed/leaching so precautions will need to be made or another choice of timber may be required to avoid this from happening. You can use products like Sikkens Cetol BL Tannin and Oil remover to prepare the timber before installation to help avoid issues after installation. Simply oiling your timber will not stop the tannin from leaching out of the timber and can cause more issues with the tannin coming out of the timber, leaving black stains below the surface of the newly oiled timber.
