What is Idigbo?

Traditionally grown in West Africa, Idigbo is a tropical hardwood with a beautiful appearance and an excellent choice for manufacturing gates. One of its most attractive qualities is its resemblance to oak. Whilst oak is known for its beautiful grain structure, its weight and high costs bring challenges when utilised as a building material. In comparison, Idigbo allows customers to achieve the same stunning look as oak without the difficulties and high prices associated with oak. Furthermore, Idigbo has a similar appearance, featuring a pale yellow to light brown colour, a coarse texture, and a similar grain pattern it is often hard to tell the difference between the two materials. 

Main Advantages:

  • More cost effective than Oak
  • Durable
  • Attractive wood grain (similar to that of Oak)
  • Resists warping and bending.
  • Highly resistant to wear and tear.


  • It has a high acid content and can react with certain finishes and cause corrosion to some metals when in direct contact with each other.
  • In some instances, it can be resistant to finishes and preservative treatments.
