MOSO Bamboo X-treme is a solid, high density bamboo decking board with a distinct tropical hardwood look, made from compressed strips from the fast growing giant bamboo species MOSO. Bamboo X-treme is very suitable for use in outdoor applications, especially as decking. A special, patented heat treatment process provides Bamboo X-treme the highest durability class possible in the appropriate EU norms (Class 1 for EN 350-1,Class 0 for EN 152 and Class 4 for EN 335) and increases the dimensional stability and density – making it very hard. The special symmetrical shape of the sides offers the possibility to choose between either the ribbed or the flat surface, and allows for quick installation with fasteners. Like any untreated tropical hardwood species, when exposed to outdoor circumstances, Bamboo X-treme will turn grey over time creating a very natural look.
Key characteristics of MOSO Bamboo X-treme:
•Extremely durable | Through the patented heat treatment Bamboo X-treme is classified by SHR in the highest durability class 1 in outdoor applications according to EN113 / EN 350-1 •Hard &amp; stable | with a hardness (9,5 kg/mm2 Brinell), density (≥ 1050 kg/m3) and dimensional stability which is superior to the best tropical hardwood species, MOSO Bamboo X-treme can be effortlessly applied in heavy duty residential and commercial projects. •Sustainable, ecological and highly renewable | The giant bamboo species MOSO grows to maturity within 5 years (compared to over 50 years for most hardwood species) and can therefore act as the green alternative for scarce tropical hardwood
