Tropical hardwood Ekki is one of our main products, being that it is also one of the hardest and most durable timber species on the planet. This makes Ekki a particular favourite for civil and marine projects such as piers, groynes, etc.
Coming from FSC® forests in West Africa, Ekki (or Azobe) has a wonderful combination of mechanical properties, density and durability.
Ekki (botanical name Lophira Alata) is used in a variety of civil and marine projects such as:
- Lock gates
- Drag/Bog/Navvy mats
- Bearers and joists
We can offer sawn, planed, drilled and/or chamfered large and small sections in FSC® Ekki and Opepe, direct from our partner sawmills in Europe for quick delivery, or straight from Africa for longer lead-time projects.
