TerraMai is excited to introduce our line of Purpleheart flooring and paneling. A high performance, environmentally awesome, and budget appropriate tropical hardwood that offers excellent durability and rich tones.
TerraMai Water Reclaimed™ woods have been lying perfectly preserved but submerged for decades in reservoirs created by hydroelectric damming of rivers in the tropics. We are carefully removing, drying ,and milling this lost and forgotten resource as an environmentally viable tropical hardwood siding and decking option. Purpleheart is unique in that it does not grey with age and exposure to UV light like most woods but becomes a dark brown with a touch of purple.
Source: Reclaimed from reservoirs in the tropics.
Species: Peltogyne paniculata
Colors: Purplish brown to eggplant purple. Ages to a dark brown with a hint of purple.
Net Dimensions: 5/8" thick x 4-1/2" wide x 8' - 12' random lengths.
Millwork: Surfaced four sides (S4S). Tongue and groove profile. Back relieved.
Character: As with most exterior woods, over time and exposure to the elements, Purpleheart will develop shallow surface checking. This does not affect structural performance of the material.
Finish: Material is available unfinished or pre-finished (exterior commercial grade clear oil applied to all sides).
