Sakkho is working with manufacturing partners based on the Island of Java, they have experience working with teak for two generations, and providing products manufactured using the finest quality of timber products.
While other type of timbers are available, Sakkho products are mostly manufactured using the following species:
Botanical name- Shorea
A hardwood timber from Indonesia, Thailand, Sarawak, the Philippines and Malaysia. Trees grow up to 70m tall with 1.5m diameter base. Interlocked grain pattern provides for a fairly strong, stable species, although durability is low. Can be used for joinery, paneling and interior framework such as doorways. Often used as a veneer on plywood. Average dry density 450kg/m3.
Botanical name- Palaquium and Payena
Hardwood found growing in India, South East Asia, the Philippines and Papua New Guinea with trees growing up to 30m tall with 1m diameter base. Mainly straight grained with attractive figure. Select pieces have interlocking grain with a shine. Moderately hard, medium density makes it suitable for interior joinery, furniture making, plywood and veneering. Nyatoh is an excellent alternative to teak wood.
Botanical name- Tectona Grandis
Teak is derived from a tall evergreen tree (Tectona Grandis) from South East Asia. Hardwood growing up to 45m tall with 2m diameter base. It is one of the strongest, hard, heavy, durable, yellowish-brown timber. It is resistant to warping, rotting and the effects water normally has on wood. Popular choice for shipbuilding, fine furniture, doors, window frames, wharves, bridges, cooling-towers, louvers, flooring and paneling, veneering and carving, or any other construction related to boating or decking due to its oily nature
The high level of resinous oil present in the timber helps to act as a natural insect repellent giving the timber very high resistance to attack by termites and other timber boring insects. Average dry density 640kg/m3
