MRP Supports offers an Itauba Deck as an option to our IPE deck tiles for those projects seeking LEED points and those customers looking for a value engineered option.
Itauba is very similar in color to IPE, perhaps even a bit more walnut in appearance. Unlike IPE, Itauba has a character feature that appears as a occasional dark spot which appears as a drop of oil on the surface of the board.
Itauba and IPE share very similar technical performance characteristics, both being rated similar in strength properties (100psf live load) , highly durable and resistant to insect attack. Like IPE, Itauba Tiles are Class A Fire Rated.
