Kapur also know as kapoer is a large South East Asian hardwood with a broad range of applications including general construction.
Kapur timber decking requires no finishing and will not rot when left outdoors where rain and sun will damage other lesser quality woods. Left untreated, Kapur decking will weather to a soft warm shade of grey similar to the weathering of teak.
With a class 2 durability making it suitable for construction Kapur is cheaper than many other imported hardwoods making it an attractive material for flooring and staircases. The timber is also highly prized for external joinery, in particular for door and window sills, as it is resistant to decay when fully exposed to the weather.
