Our Batu closely resembles the rich classic look of Mahogany. Heartwood ranges from a medium
red to a deep red / brown with purple tinges and often has resin canals with white contents in concentric lines on end
surfaces which produce a warm and visually striking effect. The texture is moderately fine and grain is typically interlocked.
Batu (also known as Red Selangan Batu, Red Balau, Membatu, Meranti Batu, Mangaris) is known for its hardness, beauty
and natural durability.
While there are more than 200 different species of Meranti / Philippine Mahogany found throughout Asia, our Batu
Decking utilizes only a select few species found within the Shorea Genus. Adding to the product's appeal is the fact
that our product is carefully graded in order to achieve a nearly blemish-free decking with excellent colour consistency
plus superior strength and natural durability.
