Home > Companies > Cranwood Industries > Cranclad Iroko

Highly effective iroko external cladding with excellent strength, comparing well with teak. It is highly resistant to decay and offers a high level of durability. If it is left untreated it will weather naturally to a dark grey colour; alternatively it can be prefinished and stained before installation to avoid the weathering process.


PEFC/FSC Certified on request.
