Zimbabwe Teak

Zimbabwe Teak Decking, 130mm x 20mm, Random Lengths

Zimbabwean teak decking is known for its extreme strength and durability and striking character. It also has good insect resistance.  Colour are tones of reds with flashes of lighter sapwood. We suggest oiling the Zimbabwean Teak with Loba Decking teak oil to preserve the natural beauty and grain of this timber. Zimbabwean is generally only available in shorter lengths, max 2.4 metres, however it is available in a number of widths.
