Garapa decking boards in 145mm width
Smooth decking made of light wood with the best durability - these are our decking made of tropical hardwood Garapa. Because the wood has a very good dimensional stability, it is also often used as a pool border. Since the Garapa terrace planks are planed smooth on all sides, they can be easily laid as garden parquet without visible screws. In addition, smooth surfaces on wooden terraces dry faster and are therefore less slippery than corrugated terrace boards. The Garapadielen of BioMaderas come from FSC® - certified forestry in Bolivia. Garapa is the best wood for anyone looking for smooth, light-colored decking boards with the best resistance. More information on laying and the wood properties can be found in the laying instructions.
