Niangon is one of the best mahoganies from the African Continent. Its use dates back to over thirty years ago.

Thanks to its stability and its natural resistance to atmospheric attack (no special treatment is needed), for a while now it has been chosen for the production of windows, shutters and doors.

Its natural fat and resin content makes this timber species highly resistant to fungal and insect attack.

FACOMA’s glued laminated timber in niangon is especially suitable for the production of windows, shutters and doors with a striped reddish-brown finish.
