Merbau is an extremely durable, long lasting, tannin-rich hardwood. It has a consistent yellow-brown colour, is easy to work with in terms of clean cutting and easy fastening. Perfect for all your decking, screening and fencing needs, SpecRite merbau is a popular choice that looks great and lasts provided it is properly maintained.

SpecRite merbau decking will soon be available in a smooth S4S profile only - grooved R1F profile merbau may still be available in select Bunnings Warehouse locations for a limited time. Please contact your local store for more information.

WARNING: Merbau timber contains a naturally occurring tannin which can "bleed" from the timber when first installed.
To avoid "tannin bleed" there are several things that can be done:
- Wash the timber down with water 2-3 times before installation to help flush out the tannins.
- Seal the timber with a quality decking oil or decking sealant on all sides and cut ends before installing.
- Avoid installing above light coloured paving, render or brickwork as the leaked tannin is likely to cause permanent staining particularly if left to dry out.
- Be sure to wash away any leaked tannin with water immediately to avoid staining.
