MOSO® Bamboo Jacking Beams are made of the fastest growing plant on earth. The fully tested beams are the sustainable replacement for tropical timber that was used in large amounts.
Bamboo strips are compressed and glued under high pressure, creating a High Density® material that is even harder than the best tropical hardwood species. With the development of the Jacking Beams, bamboo can now be used in many heavy duty supporting and lifting applications. The MOSO® Bamboo Jacking Beams are thoroughly tested for various mechanical properties like compression strength and bending. Compared to normal bamboo beams additional efforts were made to define the right type of strips, type of glue, density, etc.
Bamboo Jacking Beams are developed in close partnership between MOSO® and Mammoet, the expert in heavy lifting. The standard length of the MOSO® Bamboo Jacking Beams is 1050 mm and the beams have a cross section of 100×100 mm for easy calculation of stacking requirements at each support point. For filling smaller gaps to a required height, additional blocks are available in different thicknesses.
Because of its expertise, MOSO® is able to develop unique, customised bamboo solutions for industrial clients, meeting exceptionally stringent requirements. Through its experience, innovative attitude and world-wide network, MOSO® is recognised as the global A-brand in bamboo products.
