We source SFC (sustainable forestry certified) Kwila. Kwila is a tropical hardwood, similar to teak, extremely solid and heavy. It is excellent for applications where a natural look finish is sought and the gates may be subject to knocks and bumps. It can also be stained or painted.


Kwila has a characteristic red colour which will bleed in the early stages before it weathers down. This is a trademark of Kwila furniture and decking. Unless requested otherwise, gates manufactured from Kwila a normally washed down prior to dispatch to minimize further sap bleed.


It is an excellent material but due to high world wide demand and limited Certified logging, tends to be at the upper end of the timber price range.
