Product Description

Selects & Better Sawn to Size Dark Red Meranti

Red Meranti is used in joinery, general construction and also furniture, particularly for interior framing and drawer sides and backs. Meranti varies in colour from a red-brown to dark red and the select and better grade we supply contains few knots. Our cut to size timber is untreated and is dried in kilns to remove moisture content.

Treating Meranti can be difficult but it is possible to achieve a good finish. Also Meranti can be glued and nailed satisfactorily when joining and fixing.

Our cut to size Meranti timber products (also called sawn to size) are literally sawn down to your chosen measurements and come straight off the saw with no machining performed to the edges, unlike our planed products. Our cut to size timber is untreated and is most commonly dried in kilns to remove moisture content. Sawn to Size Dark Red Meranti is ideal if you don’t have the facility to cut timber down in-house.

Dark Red Meranti is a tropical hardwood which comes from Malaysia and is a mix of species from the genus Shorea including:

  • Shorea pauciflora
  • Shorea curtisii
  • Shorea acuminata
  • Shorea platycarpa
  • Shorea platyclados

On average Dark Red Meranti is a lot stronger than light red and for maximum load in bending is actually higher than Oak, although Oak is much harder.

At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have as much usable Dark Red Meranti timber as possible from your order.
