Wood Tiles

Bison™ Wood Tiles are ideal for blending the beauty of real hardwood with long-lasting durability and low maintenance. They are commercial grade, constructed with stainless steel screws, and can be periodically treated with oil to preserve and enhance their original color. They can also be left untreated to develop a natural aged weathered gray patina. Wood species offered include Ipe, Massaranduba, and Cumaru.

Product Overview

Design

Bison Wood Tiles are designed for every surface from rooftops to courtyards, terraces to pool decks. Constructed with Natural Hardwood, they offer flexibility in design and easy installation.

Environmentally Friendly

Bison Wood Tiles are constructed utilizing a select method where only mature trees are harvested, leaving a vast majority of the forest intact. FSC certified products are available.

Care & Maintenance

Your Bison Wood Tiles come from the factory unfinished. Colors, shades, and textures will vary greatly and will continue to change after installation when left untreated. 

Uneven weathering and staining from the elements is normal.  Sealing or staining the Wood Tiles is not required.  Left unsealed, the Wood Tiles will slowly turn a natural light gray patina.

However, if you do choose to maintain your Wood Tiles with a stain or sealer, the manufacturer recommends an oil based penetrating sealer specifically designed for tropical hardwoods.

You should consult a local finishing professional familiar with the treatment of hardwood decks and finish characteristics specific to the climate in your area when you make your decision on what specific product to use.

Keep in mind that once stained or sealed, regular maintenance of the finish will be required.
