What Is Iroko Hardwood?

Iroko hardwood is found on the Iroko tree which is native to the west coast of Africa and can live up to 500 years. A key feature of this wood is that it is tough, dense and extremely durable, hence why we think it is the ideal gate material. Used as a substitute for teak, it ranges from light brown to deep-golden brown in both colour and grain. The resistance strength of Iroko is one of the reasons why it is great for exterior projects like gates, boat making, decking and floorboards.

The interlocked grain inside the wood makes it difficult to work with tools but our team at Stellar Gates are well-versed with this material and will be able to create stunning Iroko gates to your exact requirements.
