Itauba has excellent technical values with a particularly high span and load capacity. It is therefore particularly popular as construction wood.
As a substructure and decking
Due to its positive technical properties, the wood is enjoying increasing popularity in terrace construction. In addition to its use as a substructure, it is also used as a decking board, whereby dark, blotchy discolorations occasionally occur in the visible area, which occur as a result of dark core materials being stored in the living tree. However, these turn gray under weathering and adapt to the rest of the wood colour.
