Bamboo X-treme® Beams can be used for custom made stairs, furniture, shutters and more.
A unique heat treatment process and increased density (by compressing the bamboo strips) makes these beams extremely stable and durable. MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® Outdoor Beams are for example suitable for outdoor furniture and facades. In fact, the application possibilities are only limited by the creativity of the architect who works with the material!
The high-quality properties of the beams are achieved by a unique Thermo-Density® process perfected by MOSO®. Contrary to other materials for outdoor use, no harmful chemical additives such as fire retardants are used. Bamboo X-treme® materials reach the highest durability class possible in the appropriate EU norms and the European fire safety class B-s1-d0.
Bamboo X-treme® Outdoor Beams are a safe and ecological choice for cladding façades. The beams add a natural, high-quality finish to any building. As with most materials used outdoors, the colour of the material changes under the influence of wind, rain, frost and sunshine (UV-light). The colour changes to a typical weathered natural grey-tone, however, this has no effect on the quality and durability of the material.
MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® is a natural, ecological alternative to tropical timber beams and boards. They not only withstand the weather, but also less susceptible to vandalism than many commonly used woods, thanks to the hardness.
MOSO® develops outdoor furniture together with leading manufacturers. The Bamboo X-treme® Outdoor Beams for benches, chairs and tables are available in a standard range and can be customized for partners. They are as ecological and weather-resistant as they are durable and beautiful. Municipalities, among others, see the need for sustainable decisions for the further development of inner cities and opt for outdoor furniture made of bamboo.
MOSO® guarantees the highest quality of its products by controlling it during the complete manufacturing process. From strip to final product, the own quality control teams make sure that strict European standards are met. MOSO® is the only bamboo supplier that has certifications for all its products, which are available on the website or on request.
Whilst product excellence being one of the core values of MOSO®, sustainability is also the beating heart of our daily work. Bamboo is not only the fastest growing building material in the world, with a growing speed of up to 1 meter per day; it is also a rapidly renewable material that is abundantly available in all (sub)tropical regions of the world. MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® products are carbon-neutral or even carbon-negative during their whole life cycle, which has been proven by a Life Cycle Assessment report of the TU Delft. That makes bamboo the sustainable and naturally beautiful solution for all different kinds of outdoor applications.
Worldwide there are numerous examples of bamboo projects with Bamboo X-treme® outdoor beams. We would like to present to you a number of recently completed projects:
