Ipe', native to Central and South America, is an extremely dense wood that has earned high marks as a decking product. Several upscale commercial ventures, including the Atlantic City Boardwalk and the Nauticus National Maritime Center in Norfolk, have installed Ipe' decking.


The wood has a very high resistance to all insect and fungal attacks without the necessity of harmful chemical treatments. Extremely tight grained and essentially knot free, it resists shrinking and cupping, is able to withstand heavy traffic, and is naturally fire resistant.

Ipe' can be coated to retain its rich brown color, or left natural to turn a soft silver. A unique hidden deck fastening system, which eliminates exposed screws, is available for a safer, more attractive installation.



"An abundance of hardwood with a soft and glowing patina and lavish widths of clear grain."
