There are two major types of Red Meranti – Dark Red Meranti and Light Red Meranti. The obvious difference is in the colour, but their properties and uses may also slightly differ. Dark Red Meranti is heavier, denser and harder than Light Red Meranti and is also more durable.

Meranti is an attractive, strong and durable wood that is resistant to decay and suitable for a variety of projects, including outdoor applications. It is also sometimes called Philippine Mahogany in some areas due to its similarity to mahogany in terms of appearance and properties.
