Balau is known as Selangan Batu or Bangkirai and is a good option if you prefer a lighter colour timber. Balau is an extremely stable and durable tropical hardwood that originates from Southeast Asia. It is known for its excellent durability, which makes it ideal for use in construction. It has a high resistance to decay, insect attacks, and moisture, which means it can last for many years without deteriorating.
Balau timber has a beautiful and distinctive appearance that can enhance the visual appeal of any building. Its rich colour, natural grain pattern, and smooth texture make it an attractive choice for a wide range of applications.
Balau is relatively easy to work with, which makes it a popular choice among builders and architects. It can be sawn, drilled, and shaped to fit any design requirements, and it can also be finished with a variety of coatings and stains.
For those who are passionate about sustainability, Balau is a very sustainable building material, as it is sourced from responsibly managed forests. It is also a renewable resource, which means it can be harvested and replenished without damaging the environment.
