Select & Better Planed All Round Dark Red Meranti
Planed Dark Red Meranti is supplied with a smooth planed finish on the four long sides and is ready for you to work with. The timber, as the name suggests, is red-brown to dark red and slightly durable which makes it more useful for interior work such as:
- Interior joinery
- Interior framing
- Drawer sides and backs
Supplied in the Select and Better Grade, this timber is used indoors regularly and the planed Meranti can be finished well, however, when working with the timber there can be a blunting effect on tools. Meranti also takes well to fixings, so, can be glued and nailed into place well.
Our Planed Dark Red Meranti is cut to size and then planed down to your specification so you get the timber ready to work with. The plane leaves the timber smooth on the two sides and both faces, although, the ends are left rough sawn and slightly over length for you to cut down on site.
We recommend that you get prices for the lengths you require rather than ordering longer lengths that you are then going to cut down. This is because it is harder to match the grade across longer lengths which means the longer a piece of wood is the more expensive it is per meter.
At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest percentage of usable Dark Red Meranti timber possible from your delivery.
The Dark Red Meranti Tree
Dark Red Meranti is a Malaysian tropical hardwood which grows to be around 45m tall. The trunk of the tree usually spans 1.2m but can vary slightly. Dark Red Meranti is not listed on CITES and is available for well managed sources. However, some species of Meranti are listed as vulnerable to extinction in the wild.

Select and Better Dark Red Meranti Planed All Round from iWood Timber
Our timber is imported straight from sawmills on the continent. Our usual lead times are therefore 20 to 30 working days.
Delivery cost varies by location. Please click here to open our delivery cost page in a new window.
Our delivery lorries visit different parts of the country on different days, so once your order is ready we will work with you to arrange a delivery day for when one of our lorries is in your area. We will always arrange the delivery day in advance with you.
We deliver weekdays Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am to 5pm. Our delivery vehicles will have multiple jobs on them which can affect the delivery time to you, depending on factors such as traffic and how long it takes to offload the previous jobs. The driver will call you in advance with an estimated time of arrival to make sure you'll be there.
Aside from delivery locations that are priced on application, your delivery will be provided with means of offloading from the truck. This may be by HIAB (lorry with a crane arm), or by supplied manpower. The method will be determined by the haulage company we use based on your location and available options at the time. Please note, both offload options will drop your order to the side of the lorry, they won't be able to carry it around the back of a property, for example.
For areas that are priced on application, by default, we will quote for delivery on a flat-bed lorry that you'll need to arrange to offload yourself. We can quote for offloading on request, but to these areas it's usually prohibitively expensive, and cheaper for you to hire a forklift, or arrange to have enough people on-site to offload.
The ordering process
After placing your order securely online you receive an email confirming the items you have ordered. When your order has arrived at iWood HQ and is ready for dispatch, we will give you a call to arrange delivery.
