Hosting an enchanting richness, Ipe composite decking draws its colour inspiration from the South American hardwood of the same name. Ipe (pronounced ee-pay), features a colour range from olive to dark blackish brown, with contrasting black and brown stripes.
This dramatic pattern adds to the tropical charm, creating a rich backdrop for your outdoor space.
Rare tones in an easy to maintain composite
As ethical sources of Ipe timber become rarer, this composite provides a sustainable solution to enjoying the classical colouring for which Ipe decking is renowned. As an added advantage, this composite requires no coating at any stage, ensuring colour preservation for years to come, without the need for ongoing maintenance.
Should your Ipe composite decking require cleaning, the use of warm soapy water is sufficient to clean the high quality finish of your deck.
Easy to enjoy composite decking
This colouring is popular for installation near pools, as the combination of tropical colourings and the advantage of a decking surface that is resilient to mould, is particularly advantageous.
In addition to the character and colouring, the non-slip surface provides additional safety advantages, particularly when the surface is wet.
