This type of highly resistant wood is also known as Gonçalo Alves, Brazilian Koa and Muiracatiara. Native to the forests of South America. It is considered by its great benefits as one of the best Woods for quality concerns. In its physical appearance as wood, is distinguished by possessing a reddish brown with black stripes and Brown. In particular can be attributed this feature, black stripe contrasting along tables Tigerwood (who also created a visual attraction), as the reason for its brand name. Tigerwood is the sufficiently robust and durable enough to withstand a range of useful life of more than 30 years, being able to withstand rot, mildew and other demands to them requires different harmful environmental factors, no demand of preservatives. Its nature allows implementations both in interior spaces, being very useful for applications in terraces, floors, bridges, or other uses.
Tigerwood, is Yes, a very dense and very hard wood by forcing the constructor using specialized of higher degree of difficulty industrial tools, in order to obtain optimal results. This type of wood represents a great alternative in the decision-making of installation of platforms, is a unique and incomparable resource between different Decking materials, especially by their vibrant colors. Is without a doubt, a 100% natural resource highly resistant and durable, able to withstand harsh as rot, mold and insects.
Unlike other such materials, especially Tigerwood achieved an innovative appearance and of great attraction for users, because its nature is like a wood that can be used as a cover with "Atigrada" appearance, maybe its reddish colour with black and dark brown stripes, give this spectacular aspect. Decide to use this exotic material, and get terraces, floors, and other unique ornaments.
Tigerwood Decking is usually kiln-dried to eliminate moisture from approximately 14-16%, since it is important to take into account this aspect when it comes to implementing outdoors, i.e. When this resource needs to be exposed on the outside. These applications or applications abroad include covers, coating, banks, docks, patios, planters and other outdoor furniture
Tigerwood is actually a high wood density and high hardness, specific characteristics of longer-lasting resources in the use of their applications, which in turn generates no doubt, the need to use certain tools of specialised nature or industrial level for optimal results in the execution of its installation.
It is also important to consider certain aspects for the installation coveof rs with Tigerwood as:
*Spacing of separation
*Ventilation: to allow proper ventilation to guarantee stability, prevent cupping, prevent surface testing and minimize the natural movement of the wood. Do not allow that stagnant water collecting under the cover. Make sure that field is tilted properly under the cover to remove the water stagnant under the structure..
*Cutting and drilling: we recommend using Premium carbide for cutting due to the nature of this wood.
*Sealing of fixation
It should be considered that this wood must not be installed on a concrete pad directly, because the concrete retain moisture, factor that discourages good performanceNever installarion on a concrete structure pad directly.
