Our Hardwood Series Fencing is made from Ipe, also known as "Brazillian Walnut". It is commonly used for high end premium flooring and decking and known for its incredible strength and resistance to decay.
We use 3/4" x 2" pickets with 3/8" Aluminum Diameter twisted wire betweed the pickets.
Ipe is naturally resistant to rot and decay, as well as attack by insects, termites, fungi, mold and termites. It has superb weathering characteristics, so there is no need for toxic paints, preservatives, or pressure treating. Its color simply turns grayish as it weathers.
Unmatched Strength and Durability
The physical hardness and strength of Ipe is remarkable, more than 368% harder then Teak. It is an extremely dense wood and rated as very durable, with a tight grain and commonly lasts more than 50 years without coating.
Our Ipe is responsibly harvested from well-managed forests to provide a truly renewable resource. Ipe is not an endangered species. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood is available on request.
