Meranti

Category: Tag:

Species Description: Wood Species

Meranti is probably the most popular ‘value for money’ species when it comes to joinery here in South Africa.  Bending and crushing strengths are medium, but resistance to shock loads is low. Works well with hand and machine tools with only a slight blunting effect on cutting edges. Produces a good finish when filled.

Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common uses: Interior joinery, domestic flooring, drawer sides and backs, and interior framing.

Comments: Used extensively for joinery in South Africa.
