Balau Mahogany Wood Cable Railings


Balau Mahogany Cable Railing Systems


Also referred to as Batu Mahogany or Red Balau, this exotic hardwood is both beautiful and durable, with even coloration, fine grain, and a dense cell structure that makes it naturally resistant to rot, decay, insects, and mold.

Harvested using Sustainable Practices, this Asia-Pacific native combines the rich, exotic coloration of tropical wood species with exceptional resilience and strength. It is also easy to handle and stain, making it a construction favorite.

STARTING AT $50/LF

   Options:
  1. Drilled or undrilled posts?
  2. Do you want a 36 or 42 final railing height?
  3. What Fittings and Cable Infill options are right for your project?
  4. Choose a Mounting Method for your posts, and order Mounting Hardware

Our posts are engineered using a unique configuration of fused boards to create a single beam reinforced in every direction. We are the only vendors offering this engineered beam, which we cut and drill to your specifications for cable railing systems.

Maintenance for Balau wood is very minimal. We recommend the occasional sweeping and hosing down to keep your wood frame clean and suggest the use of oil treatment to preserve the rich color and moisture of this exotic hardwood. Balau can be left untreated if desired, and will gradually silver and soften in color when exposed to UV rays.

If you only want a wood top rail, you might be more interested in our Ipe Top Rails. This wood species is visually and structurally similar, but with deeper and more marbled coloration. If you would prefer a lighter wood, we offer Alaskan Yellow Cedar and Western Red Cedar, the latter of which has matching Posts.

For more detailed descriptions of our wood products' purposes and applications, consult our Wood Installation Instructions and Special Terms for Wood Orders.

Call 888-686-7245 or email us any time for design and ordering assistance. We're happy to help!
