Originally, due to price and availability, Mahogany was substituted by Cedrinho/ Cambara (the same). However, Cambara structure is rather coarse.

 

Also, its quality in respect of durability and resistance to fungi, termites and marine borers is not as good as the less known specie Sirari.

 

Superior strength, decay resistance, and uniformity in color make Sirari – also known as Bolivian Mahogany – the homeowners choice over its rival Philippine Mahogany. We stock only 100% heartwood, rich reddish brown, which makes for a unparallel look when comparing to any other solid wood decking.

 

Sirari is an unknown Bolivian specie, which definitely is a great opportunity to buy due its accessible price (at least for the moment). Also, Sirari is definitely not as coarse as Cambara. The structure of Sirari is as fine as Mahogany.

 

Furthermore, Sirari is double as hard (Janka hardness 7060kgf) opposed to Cambara (3900kgf).
