In regards to using Paulownia, early on, when first considering this timber, we had this product (supplied by Paulownia Timber supplies)  tested through the Structural Testing Service's (Qld) to analyse and determine the mechanical properties and also to test and compare against Western Red Cedar (of which we supplied a test piece). It is because of this extensive testing, research and quality control, that we only recommend Paulownia Timber Supplies for all our Strip plank designs

Australian Paulownia is descended from native Asia and is now an Australian Plantation timber, grown in four states. Paulownia is light in weight and pale blonde in colour with it's own character grain but approximately the same strength as Cedar. It has a magic feel like a firm balsa wood, is very light and because paulownia resembles Western Red Cedar in weight and strength, it is increasingly being used in the marine industry.
