Iroko Worktops

At Norfolk Oak we have always been asked if we can provide Iroko worktops. Although we rarely say no to customer requests, in the instance of Iroko we have always had to. The reason for this is simple: at Norfolk Oak we are committed to only sourcing our timber from renewable sources. As there were no certified sources of Iroko this meant, reluctantly, we had to let our customers go to competitors who were prepared to source their timber from non-renewable sources. However, a well-managed source of Iroko has now become available. As we can now obtain the timber from a certified supplier we are pleased to announce that we are now able to provide Iroko worktops.

About our Iroko

african iroko tree

The Iroko tree is found in the west coast of tropical Africa. Our Iroko is sustainably sourced in very large wide planks. After being freshly oiled the Iroko worktops possess a golden shimmering tone which darkens over time to a rich darker brown colour.

This timber is commonly used for flooring and domestic furniture, because Iroko has a naturally high oil content it's often preferable to outdoor use. This also makes it easier to maintain within the house when it comes to re-oiling and keeping out moisture.

Iroko is a very durable wood. Its grain is sharp, dark and irregular, which gives it that rustic appearance.

Worktop Finishing

Installation Oiling
If you would like the reassurance of us pre-oiling your iroko worktops, we can do so with our installation oiling service. Your iroko worktops will then arrive ready for you to install as soon as you receive them. Read more about our Installation Oiling Service.

Nano Coating
Nano-coating is a 2 Part Process. The first application consists of 2 separate coatings, which are designed to react and bind with the timber. This treatment alone is not enough to protect timber but when combined with the second application, it protects the initial coat and forms a barrier against soap and alcohol etc. This second coating is water/scratch resistant, the daily wear and tear from sticky and wet glasses will prove the resilience of our nano coating.

If you have more specific requirements in mind or would like to know what to do to receive a complete quotation please contact us.

White Wash
A popular traditional wood finishing effect, whitewash worktops add a wonderfully rustic style to your kitchen. Depending on what finish you choose, our whitewash can be applied during pre-installation oiling or with our advanced nano-coating treatment.
