With its jarrah-like reddish-brown, red ironbark is a highly stable timber. Sometimes referred to as Mugga, or Mugga ironbark, this hardwood ages to a greyish, cedar-like colouring. The hardness and durability are retained, giving a life expectancy of over 40 years.
Forest Red Ironbark
Forest reds include two primary timbers – red ironbark and red iron gum. Red iron Gum is made of softer pinks and light reds with a consistent colour palette. If you’re after something more solid with less variation than grey ironbark, this might be the choice for you.
Ranging from light grey to a light shade of chocolate and featuring a distinctive textured pattern, grey ironbark is perfect for outdoor living areas. A strong, character-rich hardwood, it’s suitable for a broad range of applications and resistant to lyctid borers & termites.
