Jarrah Timber Flooring Sydney
Jarrah Flooring Sydney; Jarrah is one of the most common species of eucalyptus tree grown in the south western corner of Western Australia and one of the state’s few commercial species.
Its botanical name is eucalyptus marginata, which refers to the light coloured vein on the edge of the leaf.
The grain, with an even and moderately coarse texture, is usually straight, but can be interlocked and wavy, occasionally producing an attractive fiddle back pattern. Jarrah is a deep-rooted species and therefore drought resistant, as it is able to draw deeply for water during dry periods. The heartwood is durable (class 2) and dark red in colour, often with a rich dark mahogany hue. The sapwood is a paler yellow colour.
Jarrah glues well and will readily accept paint, stain and polish. Jarrah’s colouring and exceptional hardness (janka 8.5) are a perfect combination for commercial and residential flooring. It is also popular in general construction and is commonly used to make outdoor furniture, musical instruments and hot tubs.
We use and recommend Synteko ‘Classic’ to finish Jarrah flooring.
