Ipe Decking

Ipe Decking

St. Angelo Hardwoods stocks Ipe decking in a few different sizes.  Strong and durable, Ipe will more likely be the last deck you install at your home or office.

Characteristics of Ipe Decking are as follows:

Weight: Ipe wood decking has specific gravity of 0.85 to 1.08. Air dried density is 66 to 75 lbs. per cubic ft. A 3/4″ thick finish material weights approx. 4.5 lbs. per sq ft.

Drying & Contraction (green to kiln-dried): Radial 6.6%, tangential 8.0%, volumetric 13.2%. Small movement after being milled. As the weather changes, average movement for an air-dried deck board about 6″ wide is roughly 1/16″.

HARDNESS RATING: Ipe hardwood has a Janka Hardness Rating of 3,680 lbs with air-dried decking and 12% moisture content. When tested (ASTM-D143), an ipe deck is around eight times harder than California redwood & three times stronger than teak. Ipe decking holds up even in harsh climates and extreme conditions.


FIRE RESISTANCE – Tested by the National Fire Protection Agency (ASTM-E84). Ipe wood decking received the highest classification for Flame Spread: Up to Class A, Uniform Building Code, Class 1.

SLIP RESISTANCE – Our ipe decking exceeds the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements for Static Coefficient of friction in a wet environment.

STRENGTH – Three times stronger than Cedar, our inventory of ipe decking exceeds all existing code requirements for exterior constructions. An ipe deck will be able to structurally handle many a lot of weight due to snow or any outdoor function you please!
