bamboo x-treme® porch flooring, soffit or ceiling
The next generation natural 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 suitable for outdoor applications, especially as porch flooring or soffit. 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
Porch flooring is usually made with (tropical) hardwood or softwood and comes in many quality variations. In comparison to (tropical) woods and WPC material, bamboo has many ecological and technical benefits. Bamboo grows faster, is harder and looks stunning when installed as porch flooring. In combination with Bamboo X-treme® decking, many design opportunities can be recognised for modern, sustainable outdoor living areas.
Bamboo for soffit
Soffit serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose for a building’s roofing system. It’s the skin that covers your eaves — without it, you would see your rafter beams fully exposed. Cover it up with soffit, in the style and color that you like, and you add some instant and easy character to your building.
Bamboo with highest durability class
A special, patented heat treatment process, called Thermo-Density®, provides Bamboo X-treme® 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. With this treatment bamboo is no longer a food source for fungi and micro-organisms. Furthermore, 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 the thermo treatment combined with High Density® compression of the bamboo strips. The boards are more stable than any tropical hardwood and therefore can be produced with tongue and groove connection. That is why the installation can be done without gaps between the sides, which not only looks very appealing, but is also much faster 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 that not only grows very fast (up to 1 meter per day!) but does not result in deforestation after harvesting, as the plant does not die when the stems are harvested. Like any hardwood species, when exposed to the weather, Bamboo X-treme® will turn grey over time. A beautiful, natural look will appear that is similar to weathered hardwood.
Outdoor bamboo with proven quality
More than 18.2 million square feet of MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® decking boards are installed all over the world, since its introduction in 2008. Bamboo X-treme is recognized as the best quality bamboo decking and now also available as 1x4 T&G profile. The proof is the impressive list of reference projects and clients such as Iberostar Resorts Latin America, Vabali Spa Germany, Ushuaïa Hotel Ibiza, Meier on Rothschild Tower Israel, and many more. With a complete assortment including fencing and siding boards, accessories and beams, landscape architects and property owners have many possibilities to design a sustainable outdoor living area with Bamboo X-treme material.
