Sapele is a reddish-brown wood that in many ways is very similar to mahogany. Sapele ranges from medium to fairly dark reddish-brown to purplish-brown. While sapele is similar in color to african mahogany, it is more durable than true mahoganies. The strength of sapele is similar to oak. We use only the higher quality grades of sapele lumber for our stair treads.
We offer landing treads in 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" width in length up to 8' long. Our landing tread is 1-1/16" thick, and rabbeted to 3/4" thick, with a groove to fit standard 3/4" hardwood flooring, overhang is 1-1/4"
We now offer staining and prefinishing on all our wood landing treads. On our clear finishes we put on 3 coats of a commercial grade catalyzed varnish to give it a hard and durable finish. The prefinished landing treads end up looking great with a clear, natural finish that is hard to beat! On the stained wood landing treads a stain is applied, then 3 coats of varnish. If you want your treads stained you can choose from one of Woodwright's standard stain colors
, or you can send us a sample to have color matched.
