Red Mahogany Timber Flooring Sydney
Red Mahogany (Eucalyptus resinifera) is a medium sized tree growing up to forty five metres in height, and from one to one and a half metres in diameter. It grows along Australia’s east coast, from Sydney in NSW to Atherton in Queensland.
Red Mahogany is an extremely dense hardwood, with stunning deep, dark red colouring. Its density and rare colouring have made it a prestigious timber species, which is available only in limited quantities. The heartwood is durable and ranges from red to dark red, while the sapwood is much paler and easily distinguishable. Red Mahogany is generally medium textured with an uneven grain, which at times can be interlocked. The timber takes some time to dry thoroughly, but with very few imperfections caused in the process.
Red Mahogany is resistant to termite attack, making it suitable for flooring, cladding, panelling, general construction, sleepers and poles, as well as furniture and turnery.
Red Mahogany has a Janka rating of 12.
