“We love the rich color it starts with and that it fades to grey so nicely. You can maintain it and keep the rich brown color or you can let it fade on its own and it will still look amazing. The homeowner was thrilled that we found a natural material that would accommodate the low ground clearance and moist environment and even comes with a 25-years warranty.”

Extremely stable and durable

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.

More about how bamboo is made

A low-maintenance and durable terrace

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).

Maintaining your bamboo garden terrace

In addition to periodic cleaning, we recommend annual maintenance of the pre-oiled decking with Woca maintenance products. Unfinished decking must be treated with a suitable waterbased oil or saturator immediately after installation. Annual maintenance and cleaning should be performed using a cleaner and silicium carbid brush or broom.
