Western Australia’s hardwood manufactured for Australia’s homes
Jarrah is a unique Western Australian timber that is extremely versatile. As a perfect reflection of the vibrant hues of the iconic Australian landscape, Jarrah is known for its deep red colour and is used in a range of structural and design applications.
This durable and strong Australian hardwood is weather, rot, termite and fire-resistant, making it an ideal choice for many outdoor projects.
ASH utilised the unique colour and density of Jarrah to produce benchtops and panels for interior and exterior use. Jarrah’s natural hues make it the perfect kitchen benchtop, table or shelf.
Jarrah timber is typically used in construction such as fencing, flooring, joinery, decking and linings. The timber’s texture features an even, moderately coarse wood grain and is a popular choice when it comes to architectural design.
