Mosowood bamboo decking from Bamboo and Timber Select is made from 100 per cent solid bamboo. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet with 25 times the yield of hardwoods so it is the ideal solution for the environmentally conscious customer.
Bamboo decking has a smooth surface on the top and a reeded surface underneath. It comes in two styles, vertical and strand woven. It natural colour is retained as the bamboo is finished at the factory with a UV treatment. A non-toxic seal is also used to protect the boards against mould and water. This seal has been successfully tested in the laboratory to simulate the harsh Australian climatic conditions.
Mosowood bamboo decking has important resistant characteristics. These are:
- Slip resistant
- Termite and white ant resistant
- Stain resistant
The bamboo decking is also UV tolerant and a fire retardant finish is due to be released in 2010.
Dimensionally this decking is stable and durable, it is harder than traditional hardwood timbers and installation can be arranged through approved decking contractors. Please visit Bamboo and Timber Select's website for further information on this and other decking products.
