The warmth and richness of the wood adapts especially well to our upscale collections. It compliments the more ellaborate designs of our wood benches and is appropriate to all surroundings. Equiparc has selected the highest grade woods available :
Jatoba (JAT) and Ipe (IPE)
Both from South America, these hardwoods offer incredible longevity and outstanding beauty. Both are very strong and highly resistant to any climate. The application of a clear preservative oil is sufficient to maintain their superb aspect.
White Oak (WOA)
This hardwood offers a great durability for outdoor as well as indoor use. Its natural whitish tone is accentuated with pale grey shades; we apply a clear protective stain to bring out its beautiful light color. Our supplies are sourced from southern Quebec, southern Ontario and north-eastern United States.
Douglas Fir (DFP)
Douglas Fir is a tough and durable structural wood well suited to the demands of public seating. Many stain colors are available to accentuate its natural beauty.
Select Hardwood such as Oak and Ash are recommended for indoor use only. Applying a clear sealer insures richness and quality.
Certification: IPE and Jatoba of premium quality lumbers are manufactured and produced in Brazil. The cutting of trees is ruled by the 1995 Brazilian Federal Law # 4771 and by the IBAMA (Brazilian Institute of Environmental and Renewable) registered #48-1995. Our wood supplier is certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) which assure protection against massive deforestation and the respect of the environment. This certification ensures that all IPE and Jatoba are purchased from Brazilian growers who harvest under the guidelines and techniques of sustainable yield forestry management as set forth by the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO).
