What is Meranti Wood?

Meranti is a type of wood derived from trees of the Shorea genus native to Southeast Asia, esteemed for its remarkable strength, durability, and versatility. With a rich reddish-brown hue and a fine, even texture, meranti’s beauty and innate structural properties lend themselves well to a variety of building applications.

Meranti Framed Glazing

Beyond construction, meranti is an increasingly popular choice in timber framed glazing thanks to its excellent dimensional stability and resistance to warping and twisting, even in challenging moisture rich environments such as the UK.

Its fine grain and natural beauty also make it an aesthetically pleasing option in framing glass panels, adding a touch of elegance to any architectural design. Additionally, meranti can be much more cost effective to source compared to other hardwoods, making it an attractive option for both residential and commercial glazing projects.

With proper treatment and maintenance, meranti frames can provide long-lasting support for windows and doors, contributing to energy efficiency and overall structural integrity.
