Reclaimed Ironwood Flooring
One of the best-kept secrets in building today is Burmese Ironwood. The wood is very similar to the better known South American Ipe wood (Handroanthus) with a slightly more reddish hue. Ironwood is a darker, heavier, stronger wood than teak. It has a janka rating of approximately 2150 (compared to Ipe’s 3342) making it much easier to work with than Ipe. It is more cost effective than teak in many respects and is perfect for flooring, paneling and exposed interior support beams within homes.
Ironwood was used much more extensively in Burma during colonial times as a framing timber, for railroad ties and large building construction. Techtona is offering reclaimed, old growth ironwood flooring, decking, siding and paneling options that are compelling given the dimensions and finishes available. Don’t see the finish you want?

I’m a furniture designer and work for an architecture firm. I’ve sourced reclaimed teak from Techtona for projects at work and for my own studio practice. I used their teak for a large exterior site bench and was struck by the quality of the
