A premium Australian hardwood with a vibrant array of colour spotted gum is a favourite timber choice amongst designers for both exterior and interior applications.
Growing all along the east coast of Australia, it’s primarily harvested from Queensland and New South Wales, with each region providing wood of varying colour. This means that the timber you get has its own unique locality and colour.
Through partnership with leading forestry and milling interests, Deck-Max consistently supplies high quality spotted gum with full certification and proof of origin. For the best spotted gum decking Brisbane wide and across Australia, contact the Deck-Max team.

Preparation of spotted gum for decking
As spotted gum has a rather coarse grain, care needs to be taken in the preparation for use in decking, to ensure the best stability and straightness.
To achieve this, Deck-Max undertakes a slow but effective preparation process, ensuring the finest quality timber for your deck.
The first step in this process is to ensure that your timber is sourced from a quality provider. Deck-Max only sources timber from government regulated providers, meaning that all our timber is fully certified with proof of origin.
To prepare the timber, it is rough sawn as an oversized piece to commence the drying process. Using a kiln to obtain the required core temperature, your spotted gum is then skip dressed, before stabilising using air drying.
Your spotted gum is now ready for final finishing, after which, it is grooved for use with the Deck-Max hidden fastening solution. By following this process, the market-leading tolerances of +/- 0.2mm are achieved.
With highly accurate sizing, a far superior installation can be achieved. Combined with the hidden fastening system, you also gain the advantage of faster installation, so you can enjoy your new deck sooner.
