The benefits of Cumaru
- Replace for ipé
- Looks like Bankirai
- Suitable for heavy constructions
This yellow-brown wood from South America is reminiscent of ipé when it is planed. The Cumaru shelves, however, are slightly more budget-friendly.
Due to the voluminous mass it is somewhat difficult to work. Cumaru, however, is good planing and thereby the planed surface is very smooth. However, this is not the case with strong cross wire.
For cumaru planks an artificial drying is chosen to optimize its stability. When the wood is dried in this way, the cumaru boards can also be laid with B-FIX clips.
Strong and durable wood type
This reddish brown wood has something from Bankirai and can be used for untreated outdoor work. It is very suitable for street furniture, noise barriers, bridge and scaffolding decks, truck floors and other heavy constructions. Bankirai wood, however, is slightly more stable and tighter.
