Padouk wood: Durable, dimensionally stable and hard

Meet Padouk, a wood species originating from Africa. This tropical hardwood is renowned for its vibrant reddish color, hardness, and exceptional lifespan of over 25 years. Perfectly suited for facades and fences.

Why choose Padouk?

  • Vibrant Color: The heartwood of Padouk shines in a distinctive bright orange-red hue, sometimes leaning towards wine-red or purple.
  • Highly Durable: Padouk is classified as Class 1 in durability, ensuring longevity of over 25 years even under extreme weather conditions. Whether it’s facade cladding exposed to the elements or heavily trafficked floors, Padouk stands strong.
  • Stability: This wood is exceptionally stable and easy to work with, remaining flat and resistant to warping. It presents a calm grain pattern with few knots or defects, making it ideal for various indoor and outdoor applications such as facades, fences, tables, floors, and ceilings.
  • Hard and Heavy: Padouk is very hard and dense, contributing to its robustness and long-lasting performance even under heavy loads.
  • Easy to Treat: Want to maintain the original color of your facade? Choosing the right oil is essential. A good option is bankirai hardwood oil, such as Wovar. This specific oil enhances the wood’s renowned red color even further. When treating a Padouk table, it can be easily finished with an acid-curing clear lacquer to preserve the intense color for longer.
  • Graying: The natural aging process of Padouk results in a uniform gray color, requiring no treatment, a beautiful natural process.

Disadvantages of Padouk

  • Availability: The availability of Padouk is limited.
  • Price: with an average price of €110 per m2 excluding VAT, it is a relatively expensive choice.
  • Cleaning: Be careful when cleaning, the wood is very sensitive to some cleaning products. Get good advice in advance.
