Parawood is the type of wood that grows from rubber trees (also known as Malaysian Oak trees) and is more commonly known as rubberwood. They grow in regions like Brazil and Southeast Asia, and they produce a sappy-type of material that is similar in texture to that of latex, which gives it an incredibly durable and fine texture. Rubberwood is commonly advertised as an "environmentally friendly" wood, as it makes use of plantation trees that have already served a useful function.

Advantages of Parawood

Durability: Parawood is durable, strong, tough and resilient. If well-cared for, it should last for 20 years or more.

Low maintenance: It is easy to take care of being more stain resistant than its natural counterpart.

Soft: Parawood is soft to touch, making it comfortable to walk on when you’re tired.
This makes it ideal for bedrooms, living areas and playrooms.

Resistant to fire and burns: Rubber is burn-resistant, particularly if the heat source is a cigarette butt. Besides, it is non-toxic and won’t release toxic fumes into the air when there’s a fire.

Good shock absorber: Parawood is generally used in gyms for its shock absorbing capacity. It helps to provide good cushioning so that those working out do not injure themselves should they ever fall. It also decreases the risk of injuries while doing rigorous training.

Parawood is only available in sizes 1000mm x 600mm and 1200mm x 600mm.
