The overall toughness of Ipe has helped it find a home not just in the world of flooring, but for other more extreme uses such as railroad ties, harbour ties and outdoor decking as well as handles for kitchen and hardware tools.
Besides its structural integrity, this hardwood is perfect for resistance to moisture and pests.
As a species Lapacho / Ipe is less well known but is considered as potentially endangered ‘CITES 2’ allowing limited use under very strict licenses with proven chain of custody. Maples & Birch strictly ensure that our supply adhere to this.
