With the introduction of the MOSO® bamboo solid beam, bamboo can now also be applied in several (semi) structural applications such as window- and doorframes, where typically (expensive) scarce tropical hardwood is used.
Unlike hardwood, the MOSO® bamboo solid beam is a very regular material in terms of stability and structure (no knots, no resins coming out) and is therefore easy to process. The maximum length of the beam is 8 feet (2440mm) but by using finger joints any length can be created.
The MOSO® beams are available in the colours caramel and natural, in both the extra hard High Density® version (tropical hardwood look - random line pattern) and the side/plain pressed version (regular line pattern with bamboo nodes visible). Especially in the latter version, due to the construction in various layers, very beautiful line patterns come out after milling.
