Macrocarpa is a popular decking timber for those who want to use environmentally sustainable timber.  Many decking situations put considerable strain on the durability of the timber, which is why our Mac is great natural timber solution.  All our decking timber is supplied in heart timber and is durable to equivalent of H3.1 treated pine.

We profile our decking smooth on one side and grooves on the other.  Our recommendation is that you place grooves face down on the joists to improve aeration at the decking/joist joint.

We also recommend additional protection with a high grade wood oil like Drydens, Woca. 

MacDirect has a range of Wood Oils & Coatings, there is also a pre-coating service available. Read more about oiling our timber.
