Iroko has been competing with teak for a long time, which it can replace in many cases. The use of iroko in Europe is not yet as widespread as would correspond to the excellent properties of this wood. In Africa it is important in tropical areas for its high resistance for all construction purposes.
It is used:
- for shipbuilding (ship frames and deck floors), lock gates, bridges, bridge floors
- for external structures, wooden facade cladding and wooden facades, front doors, windows and doors, frames, stairs, floors and parquet
- for barrels, vats and tanks for the chemical and food industry, in dairies for butter (Iroko has proven better than oak), in laundries and dyers
- for internal equipment for massive and heavier office furniture, carving
Logs and sawn timber keep well. Heartwood is very durable and, due to its content of oily resins, very resistant to water, fungi, rot and insects. Iroko also resists termites.
