Blackbutt is the ideal timber for a wide variety of cladding, flooring and decking applications.

A popular choice for architects, builders and designers, Blackbutt is admired for its incredible durability and fire resistant properties. Perfect for large fit outs (e.g. shopping centres and high rise buildings) Blackbutt is a readily available and versatile timber.

A beautiful hardwood, Blackbutt presents a relatively straight and uniform grain with an appealing colour palette, ranging from cream to pale brown with a hint of pink.

Contemporary by nature, when freshly cut the truewood is pale brown with a hint of pink, whilst the sapwood (although sometimes indistinguishable from the truewood) is usually slightly paler in colour.

With a reputation for excellence, Kennedys Class One Durability Blackbutt is in high demand within the commercial building industry.

Our recycled Blackbutt is graded according to the Interim Industry Standards whilst our new certified Blackbutt is AFS approved (Australian Forestry Standard).
