Idigbo gates

Idigbo (Emeri Hardwood) Terminalia ivorensis

From West & Central Africa. Yellowish brown to light brown colour with the grain straight to slightly irregular and a medium to fairly coarse texture with a straight to slightly irregular grain or interlocked.

A cheaper wood but gives a good even finish

Its medium weight and outstanding durability make it particularly suited for Up & Over garage doors. It has excellent strength properties, being as strong and stiff as English Oak in bending, although considerably softer and less resistant to shock loads. Looks similar to Oak when treated and reacts well to finishing. Weight approx 540/560 kg/m3. Moderately durable.
