Product Description

If you need to replace or repair your old or broken bench slats, our Sapele Bench Slats with a PAR Profile are the perfect solution.  Sapele is a beautiful and durable hardwood that is commonly used for bench slats. It is native to tropical Africa and has a rich reddish-brown colour with a distinctive ribbon-like grain pattern that adds a touch of elegance to any outdoor space. Sapele is known for its high density, strength, and resistance to decay, making it a popular choice for furniture and outdoor structures.  The planed all round (PAR) profile is a type of wood finishing that involves machining the wood to create a smooth and uniform surface on all sides. This profile is particularly well-suited for bench slats, as it provides a sleek and polished appearance that is both attractive, modern and functional. With a PAR profile, the wood is completely flat, which reduces the risk of splinters or rough edges that could be uncomfortable for users. Additionally, the uniform surface allows for a consistent finish and makes it easier to attach the slats to the bench frame. These bench slats are machined on site in our sawmill and are available in a range of sizes to fit your bench perfectly.

Sapele is a medium to dark reddish brown heartwood predominantly from West Africa.  It generally has a more random grain appearance meaning it can be liable to interlocked grain.  Interlocked grain spirals around the centre of the tree thus alternating intermittently and causing a 'rough' effect, this can generally be reduced if not eliminated by heavy sanding.

Finishing from the sawmill

It is up to you and really depends what look you are after. They will go grey if you leave them and that is a natural barrier and is generally my choice with oak. Otherwise you can vanish/oil them and this will provide extra protection especially from moisture which is the worst thing to cause decay, but it will be an ongoing job with most oils. I have found with tung/danish oil that if left outside over winter as it will start to weather black and then grey in a matter of months and to avoid this it requires constant re coating. We have recently starting stocking Restol which is able to protect the wood and maintain the oak for several years without a re coat and is proving very popular.
