The benefits of Azobé
- Very hard and durable
- Suitable for garden design
- Widely applicable
Very solid, durable wood type
When heavy structures are exposed to the natural elements such as wind and weather or have to absorb large forces, Azobé is a top solution. Azobé is used, among other things, for lock gates or poles where ships can sail. Azobé poles are ideal as foundation piles or rules.
Azobe for garden design
You can use Azobé for garden wood, pergolas and decks. The cross wire and natural hardness makes it difficult to process. Predrilling is recommended, but for most applications no special finish is required.
Azobé dries difficult and slowly, but usually this is not necessary.
Widely applicable wood type
This type of wood from West and Central Africa is so widely applicable that it can be used for a long list of applications. This is reflected in heavy, unprotected load-bearing structures, bridge decks, industrial floor coverings, wagon floors, sleepers for train and metro tracks, sheet piles, garden furniture and much more.
Due to its resistance to pile worm, it is also used in waterworks and maritime applications.
