WHY IPE Black label DECKING IS BEST

IPE BLACK LABEL IS THE BEST WOOD DECKING MATERIAL IN THE WORLD!

Ipe Black Label is an ecologically friendly wood choice, highly regarded for its ability to resist rot, insect attack, and mold, without requiring the use of toxic chemicals that must be used on other decking wood to give them similar properties. Ipe is extremely dense and strong and its high wear durability makes it far more resistant to cracks and splintering. This is why Ipe Black Label decks can last for decades. Ipe Black Label is rated ‘High 70+ years’ for its decay resistance, though it tends to last much longer… if only there were a higher rating! Ipe shrugs off weather, with little effect on its structural integrity. Like metal for fire resistance, Ipe Black Label is rated an excellent ‘A1’.

Over time, the sun will change the color of the wood from the initial red-brown to a stunning silver patina. Best of all, when you buy Ipe Black Label from Tropical Forest Products you know your wood has been harvested from legally demarcated sustainable forests.

Ipe Black Label is an extremely economical and eco-friendly alternative to other types of wood, especially when the life cycle is considered. When the cost of materials and labor is compared to alternative decking materials, Ipe Black Label’s lifespan puts it far in the lead. Compared to other decking materials like redwood cedar, composites, and torrefied woods, Ipe Black Label is very competitively priced – but Ipe Black Label’s lifespan and properties make it by far the superior option.

IPE Black label IS FIVE TIMES STRONGER THAN TREATED WOODS AND CEDAR!
