Durable, strong and wear-resistant wood type

Okan is a very durable, strong and wear-resistant wood, making it suitable for all kinds of constructions, including ground and freshwater and saltwater contact. Its high density and high wear resistance make it suitable for industrial floors or decking.

Wood with beautiful colors

The heartwood of Okan is attractive yellow to golden brown, with an olive green hue. When exposed to light it turns reddish brown, sometimes even coppery. The sapwood can be sharply delineated from the heartwood due to its light pink color.

Alternative to Azobé

Technically, you can use Okan as an alternative to Azobé. This makes it suitable for various constructions such as piles, hydraulic or civil constructions, bridge construction, as well as for sleepers, industrial floors and decking.
