OKAN

Okan is an exotic timber species native to West Africa. It is a very large tree that can reach 60 m high and 2 m in diameter. The wood is very durable and naturally covers class 5 (use in marine environment and brackish water). It can be used in environments highly exposed to aggression, for example in the manufacture of bridges, railway sleepers or in hydraulic works.
