Ironbark. [Euc., sp]  Red and Grey or a mix of both

Staircase, joinery, flooring, decking, benchtops

 

Ironbark is another species which in recent years has seen a move to value added applications with the improvement to kiln dry techniques and willingness to invest in seasoning stock for longer periods of time.

 

From early applications, in unseasoned construction timbers and air seasoned decking, Ironbark is widely in demand; as kiln dry flooring, staircase manufacture as well as window and door joinery.

 

Because of its 1-2 fire rating Ironbark is in heavy demand as a decking product, Grey Ironbark because of it’s grey/black colouring enjoys popularity as a flooring species.  Staircase manufacture has following in the steps of the flooring demand.

 

With an air dry density is approximately 1120kg/m3 is heavy to handle however it works reasonably well in joinery applications. Colour is occasionally a point of discussion as there is often red coloured timber in Grey Ironbark.

 

There is a steady supply of Ironbark on to the market though at times there is a waiting period. In sawn boards Ironbark is generally available in 100-200×25, 100-300×38 and 50mm.
