Discover the Bamboo X-treme® decking board: a decking that looks like wood...
A garden terrace is an important part of a garden, where time is spent regularly. Wooden terraces are popular thanks to their natural appearance and have become an eye-catcher in many gardens. A bamboo garden terrace made of Bamboo X-treme® Decking offers several advantages over wood and other materials.

Thanks to a special and unique Thermo-Density® production process, it is very durable. The proof: more than 5 million m² of terrace boards installed in 10 years, in different climates, all over the world, with a 25 year guarantee!
Bamboo X-treme® advantages for garden terrace:
Moso bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. The bamboo stems grow from an underground root system and after 5 years a stem can be harvested, while the others continue to grow. This means the bamboo can be used without destroying the forest. After harvesting, the Moso bamboo stems are split and the outer skin is removed. By modifying the bamboo strips with a special unique Thermo-Density® process, the dimensional stability of bamboo is improved by circa 50%. The heat-treatment at 200°C also ensures protection against superficial fungi and provides the highest durability class possible. After compressing the heat-treated bamboo strips, the material is stronger and harder than almost any other hardwood.
Unfortunately, maintenance-free decks do not exist in combination with a long service life. Under the influence of wind, rain, sun and snow, each terrace becomes dirty and the material will weather. Bamboo X-treme® is a low maintenance product. The boards have a brown to dark brown colour when installed, which becomes lighter a few weeks after installation. The discolouration does not affect the quality and stability of the boards, the surface becomes only slightly rougher. Without maintenance, the material will become completely grey as a result of UV radiation (comparable to most other types of wood).
