March 09, 2022
When you decide to use wood for trailer flooring, of course you will consider it's quality. There are many types of wood to choose from, and each has its own characteristics.

However, from the many wood options available, we recommend you consider Apitong. It's a hardwood native to Southeast Asia, and has become the best material on the market in recent decades.
What makes Apitong the perfect trailer flooring material?

Apitong Durability

Durability is the most fundamental factor when it comes to heavy duty trailers. Apitong's excellent durability has made it very popular. On average, Apitong boards can last well for 7 to 15 years.

Apitong is fairly resistant to termites and fungi because it contains oleo-resin. This natural resin also helps prevent weathering and decay, which means it can withstand heavy loads and save you years of repair costs.

High-Density Wood

The low moisture content makes Apitong have a high density level. This will reduce the risk of deformation in long-term use. Apitong's high density gives it an advantage in humid and even extreme weather. 

Superior to Other Wood Species

In the last few decades, Apitong has become the top choice for the trailer flooring market in North America due to its superior quality to other hardwood types.

How about Oak which is the most common trailer flooring material for trailer manufacturers in North America?

Compared to Oak, Apitong is 26% stronger and 13% harder. This means that Apitong is more pressure-resistant to withstand the load carried by the trailer floor.
