Over the years, architects, designers, developers and builders with distinguishing taste have selected Ipe over pressure-treated wood and other traditional building materials for many building projects because of its many unique features. Prized for properties such as durability, stability, natural resistance to decay, wet conditions and insect infestation, Ipe has a Class A fire rating – the same as that given to concrete and steel. It’s natural beauty marries well with other woods and it requires minimal maintenance to keep the rich, reddish brown color. Versatile and ageless, this wood pays for itself in the long run. Applications for Ipe include decks, docks, furniture, flooring and fencing. Teamed with stainless steel cable rails and low-voltage lighting, Ipe brings outdoor living areas to a new level of beauty.
