What is Ipe?
Definition: Ipe is a hardwood from Brazilian rainforests that has garnered lots of attention in the past decade or so. Why? For one thing, it’s as hard — or harder— than nails. Ipe is so dense that it often needs to be predrilled before pieces are connected. Some compare its strength to that of steel.Other attributes of ipe wood include:
- Durability: Ipe can last more than 25 years outdoors.
- Eco-friendly; 100% natural wood.
- Mold, fire, weather and pest -resistant.
- Resists surface scratches.
