BANGKIRAI, GOLDEN BALAU DECK, INSTALLED WITH EXODEK QUICKCLIP
BANGKIRAI, GOLDEN BALAU 1x6 RAINSCREEN SIDING
Bangkirai is an outstanding alternative to Ipe, Cumaru and Garapa. Also known as Golden Balau or Yellow Balau, Bangkirai offers outstanding strength, durability and hardness. With a 25 year warranty against rot or decay, and a reputation as one of the premier species of tropical hardwood from Southeast Asia, Bangkirai is immensely popular in Europe and is one the best choices for demanding use cases such as commercial and marine decking.
The appearance of Bangkirai is truly stunning. A balance of browns and tans make it feel somewhat like Cedar but in a wood species that is significantly harder and stronger. Shown above as exterior siding run to a rainscreen pattern and installed with Nova's patented ExoClad QuickClip system, Bangkirai blends beautifully with Portland Oregon's natural forests.
Nova's Bangkirai is available in standard decking sizes such as 1x4, 1x6, 5/4x4 and 5/4x6, as well as 1x6 patterns such as our 1x6 rainscreen siding.

Our newest tropical hardwood offering is South Pacific Redwood, also known as Torem.

The Indonesian variety, Torem, is heavy quartersawn, less prone to checking, and much more stable after kiln drying. This species weathers beautifully, developing a lovely silver patine over the years.
Our South Pacific Redwood, Torem is available in a superior mix of lengths, heavy to 12' and 16'.
