Exclusive Teak House
Red Meranti
Red Meranti has a density ranging from 580 to 770 kg/m3 at 12% moisture content and an average of 670 kg/m3. The timber has good machining properties as it can be easily sawn, planed, bored or turned giving smooth machined surfaces. It also has good nailing and screw-holding properties and is easy to stain and glue. Of even more significance is its superior durability and insulation properties compared to other timbers commonly used for window frames such as Pine, Spruce, Fir and Hemlock. Kilo-dried Dark Red Meranti is a stable timber and moves very little in service, an important requirement for joinery timber. It also meets the strength requirements and has strength properties superior or comparable to other joinery timbers. It has gained a reputation as an excellent material for the production of high class joinery products especially door and window frames, facades and doors.
