5 advantages of bamboo decking for commercial centers and shops
Bamboo decking has many advantages such as its hardness, durability and stability....
For restaurants and hotels, the terrace is an indispensable part of the company. The quality of the terrace reflects the overall atmosphere and ambiance for guests. Commercial decking made of Bamboo X-treme® decking boards, the sustainable, fast-growing alternative to hardwood and other materials, offers several advantages.
Bamboo X-treme® advantages for commercial decking:
A wooden terrace is popular thanks to its natural appearance and the high-quality image of hardwood. Non-renewable materials, such as WPC or PVC, are used because they offer a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance. Whether you prefer the ecological durability, the stability and quality, the minimal maintenance or the safety, Bamboo X-treme® is more than a fully-fledged alternative to these materials. Bamboo grows extremely fast and is processed in our factory to meet the highest standards. For example, it can withstand thousands of dancing guests around the pool of Ushuäia Club Ibiza in Spain.
The company Theune Spa Management aims to build modern and advanced wellness facilities, where quality comes first. Outside, where the deck boards are exposed to the weather without protection, the demands on the material are very high. This is why the company tested Bamboo X-treme® well before making the decision to install 2,500 m² of decking at Vabali Spa in Berlin. Years later, other Vabali Spa sites were also equipped with terraces made of the sustainable and ecological material.
MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® decking is available in different widths and, depending on the finish and surface treatment, you can define your own style. Each board has a flat and standard grooved surface: just choose the one you like best! In addition to decking, MOSO® provides Bamboo X-treme® sub frame joists, fascia and maintenance products. With MOSO® fasteners, no screws are visible on the boards which contributes to a beautiful coherent appearance. Make use of the complete range to ensure the quality of the terrace. In addition to Bamboo X-treme® decking, we offer cladding and fencing boards. Bamboo X-treme® Beams can be used for custom made stairs, furniture and shutters.
Maintenance-free decks do not exist in combination with a long service life. Under the influence of users and weather conditions, every 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).
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, for which Sikkens is recommended. Annual maintenance and cleaning should be performed using a cleaner and silicium carbid brush or broom.
