Tatajuba (Moral) Parquet Blocks - 500 x 70 x 14mm

Introducing our lustrous Tatajuba (sometimes called Moral) parquet flooring blocks. These square edged blocks are a perfect blend of nature's beauty and exceptional durability. Sourced from the lush landscapes of northeastern South America, Tatajuba is a testament to the richness of the region's flora.

It's one of the few tropical hardwoods that isn't endangered, so is a good ethical choice. It's reasonably tough and nicely workable when it comes to finishing a re-laid floor. Once laid it is pretty hard wearing and stable.

Key Features of Tatajuba Wood Parquet Flooring:

  • Distinctive Aesthetics:

    When freshly sawn Tatajuba's heartwood boasts a bright to golden yellow hue, which gracefully darkens to a golden or reddish-brown upon exposure to light. Its pale yellow-white sapwood contrasts sharply, while quartersawn surfaces reveal a striped figure reminiscent of broader Sapele ribbons./li>
  • Superior Durability:

    With a Janka Hardness of 1,720 lbf, Tatajuba promises resilience. Its durability extends to decay resistance, offering good protection against insect attacks. However, it's essential to note its reported sensitivity to weathering.
  • Workability:

    Tatajuba offers good overall workability. While its interlocked grain may pose some challenges during planing, especially on quartersawn surfaces, it turns, glues, and finishes remarkably well. Its high silica content necessitates frequent sharpening of cutting tools.
  • Sustainability:

    Tatajuba's sourcing respects the environment. It's not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, ensuring responsible harvesting.
  • Versatile Applications:

    Beyond flooring, Tatajuba finds its place in decking, boatbuilding, cabinetry, furniture, veneer, and turned objects, showcasing its versatility.

Elevate your interiors with the natural charm and robustness of our Tatajuba (Moral) parquet flooring blocks. It's more than just a floor; it's an embodiment of nature's grandeur and a commitment to quality.
