Totem maintains an extensive selection of tropical hardwood decking. Focusing on species out of South America and Fiji we’re able to provide a range of different products.

IPE DECKING – Ipe is one of the most durable and dense species in the world. With a beautiful range of color and grain and a natural resistance to rot and decay, Ipe is the premium choice in hardwood decking.

CUMARU DECKING – With similar qualities as Ipe, Cumaru is an excellent low cost alternative. A long lasting product that is also resistant to rot and decay Cumaru is often compared to much more expensive Teak.

GARAPA DECKING – Another very dense, rot resistant hardwood from South America, Garapa has colors ranging from light brown to yellow. Another more affordable option to Ipe, Garapa is a long lasting species that requires no treatment or sealers.

FIJIAN MAHOGANY DECKING – The model of sustainability, Fijian Mahogany is Plantation grown & regulated by the Fijian government. Our Mahogany Decking is MCA treated making it incredibly durable and long lasting. With dark red and brown tones that weather to a silver gray over time Mahogany Decking is an excellent option for your tropical hardwood decking needs.
