The growth area of Bangkirai is located principally in South East Asia. Our Bangkirai comes mainly from Kalimantan and Sumatra. It is an extremely durable type of timber (class I – II) and accordingly very resistant to moulds and insect damage. It is an excellent building material for hydraulic structures, bridge decking, platforms, fencing, garden furniture, etc. Furthermore, Bangkirai does not tend to warp and can thus be used under all weather conditions.
