Massaranduba - This wood can be used to create medium to large size floors and decks, subject to high foot traffic for use in private, public, commercial and maritime settings. Its competitive price makes Massaranduba an excellent alternative to Ipè, especially in settings requiring strips, installed with visible screws, or with pre-assembled modules.This wood is not indicated for use as cladding on the facades of buildings. Ravaioli Legnami recommends installation with visible screws on a substructure with a 45 cm interaxis. Before installation, it is advisable to keep the material securely strapped on pallets and possibly stored in a shaded area, protected from inclement weather and atmospheric agents.When wood is exposed to sunlight and inclement weather, its tone will naturally be altered and its colour will fade over time. Regular maintenance with oils can slow down this process.
