Budget-friendly replacement

This yellow-brown type of wood from South America is reminiscent of ipé in terms of grain structure when it is planed. However, the Cumaru planks are slightly more budget-friendly.

It is somewhat difficult to process due to the density. However, Cumaru can be planed well and the planed surface becomes very smooth. However, this is not the case with strong crosshairs.

Artificial drying

Artificial drying is chosen for cumaru planks to optimize their stability. When the wood is dried in this way, the cumaru planks can also be laid with B-FIX clips.

Strong and durable wood type

This reddish-brown type of wood has something of Bankirai and can be used for untreated outdoor work. It is very suitable for street furniture, noise barriers, bridge and jetty decks, truck floors and for other heavy structures. However, Bankirai wood is slightly more stable and tighter.
