Reclaimed Borneo Ironwood flooring - Hardwood from North Indonesia

Borneo ironwood, known locally as Ulin, is a remarkable wood. It's extremely slow growth rate at less than 0.5mm a year results in a highly dense timber ideal for exterior applications. Ulin heartwood has a Class 1 natural durability above and in-ground rating, and is prized for its natural resistance rot, decay, termites and weathering. It has long been used by Kalimantan Dayak communities in traditional house construction as well as for bridges and roads. Ulin is endemic to only a few places in Southeast Asia with the majority of remaining distribution limited to Borneo island. Ulin trees can live to be more than 1,000 years old. Kaltimber's Ulin comes from disused structures in Kalimantan including houses, warehouses, bridges, roads, jetties and other structures. This material yields a gorgeous and long-lasting flooring product. 

 

Reclaimed Teak flooring - Hardwood from central Indonesia

Kayu Jati Flooring

Teak is a pre-eminent tropical timber with sterling wood properties, including rich honey tones, tight grain, and outstanding durability only found in old-growth Asian teak. It has an average wood density of 650 kg/m3, as well as excellent natural durability and dimensional stability. For centuries teak has been widely used for boat and shipbuilding, in addition to construction, decorative veneers, joinery, furniture, cabinets, musical instruments and handicrafts/ woodcarving. As natural teak forests have drastically reduced over the last six decades, using reclaimed teak helps preserve what is left and give new life to a wonderful old resource.
