bamboo x-treme® porch flooring, soffit or ceiling
The next generation in outdoor material
The solid bamboo 1x4 T&G boards MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® are made from compressed, thermally treated bamboo strips. The fixed 1x4 sized boards are perfect for outdoor applications, such as as porch flooring or soffits. The extreme stability of the material ensures a very durable bamboo surface or outdoor living area with the natural appearance of hardwood.
Bamboo for porch flooring
Typically, porch flooring is constructed with (tropical) hardwood or softwood and quality can vary. Compared to (tropical) woods and WPC material, bamboo has far more ecological and technical benefits. Primarily, bamboo grows much faster, so it's sustainable. It's harder, more durable, and looks stunning when installed on a porch floor. Combined with Bamboo X-treme® decking, a multitude of design options are available for modern, sustainable outdoor living areas.
Bamboo for soffit
Soffits serve both an aesthetic and functional purpose for a building’s roofing system. It covers your eaves — without it, drab rafter beams are left fully exposed. Why not cover them up with beautiful bamboo soffit in the style and color of your choice and add some instant character to your building?
Bamboo achieves highest durability class
A unique heat treatment process called Thermo-Density® guarantees that Bamboo X-treme® meets the highest durability class possible within the appropriate EU norms.* The Thermo-Density® process modifies and removes sugar molecules which are naturally present in untreated bamboo. After this treatment, bamboo is no longer a food source for fungi and micro-organisms. Additionally, the process increases the density – making the bamboo planks very hard.
* European Durability Class 1 for EN350 / ENV807, Class 0 for EN152 and Class 4 for EN335
More stable than any hardwood
MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® 1x4 T&G is very stable as a result of our unique, patented heat treatment process called Thermo-Density®. The boards are more stable than any tropical hardwood and therefore can be produced with tongue and groove connection. This prevents between the sides which not only looks more appealing, but is also quicker and easier to install compared to non-profiled decking boards.
The ecological alternative to tropical hardwood
The 1x4 T&G boards in the MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® collection have many characteristics similar to (tropical) hardwood. However, Bamboo X-treme® boards are made from the fast growing Moso bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource. This species grows incredibly fast (up to 1 meter per day!) and does not result in deforestation because, unlike hardwood trees, Moso bamboo does not die after harvesting. Like any hardwood species that is exposed to the elements, Bamboo X-treme® will turn grey over time, creating a beautiful, natural look similar to weathered hardwood.
