About Our Planed Meranti & Sapele
The term Planed All Round (PAR) means that all four faces along the length are planed and ready for use. This is superior to the traditional planed square edge where only one face tends to be planed. Our specialist machining ensures that all four faces are square (at 90 degrees), planed smooth and ready for immediate use on your project. Just select your required thickness, width and length and let us do the rest.
What hardwoods do we offer?
One of the hardwoods we stock is Meranti, our Meranti is precision machined, finely selected and graded to ensure it’s free of any major natural defects. Giving it smooth, splinter-free surfaces and wood that’s ready to work with right away. As Meranti is a hardwood, it is much stronger than pine PAR, making it very suitable for outside use.
We also stock a range of Sapele that is the best commercial grade available, virtually free of knots and defects. Plus Sapele has a naturally high resistance to insect attack and decay, making it the perfect choice for all external and internal applications such as a Sapele cornice. Although this timber is ideal for oiling and staining, to reveal its stunning grain and natural textures, it is also suitable for painting or polishing to your desire.
We also offer a free cross-cutting service so we can cut to length any timber you require, we can also plane the material to your exact size if required. Finally, if you cannot see what you need, we can machine to order your exact requirement, this takes up to 4 working days.
