Hevea Rubber wood is a very common wood in Southeast Asia and natural rubber comes from these plantations. This kind of tree is cut every 20/25 years and it’s therefore easily renewable; this is an essential feature from the environmental point of view.
Solid Hevea has very uniform characteristics and has average hardness similar to Oak. The resin contained in Hevea Rubber wood is actually rubber and this makes this wood very stable and suitable for big surfaces manufacture. Moreover, it’s a naturally elastic wood and therefore excellent for gyms, sports halls and fitness centres.
The main characteristics of this wood are the following:
• Hevea Rubber wood has a good hardness and has technical characteristics similar both to Oak and Beech;
• The resin contained in this wood is Rubber, which makes it extremely elastic;
• Dimensional stability, essential for big surfaces;
• Possibility of installation both with metal clips system and nailed onto the elastic under structure.
