Extremely stable and durable

Moso bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. The bamboo stems grow from an underground root system and after 5 years a stem can be harvested, while the others continue to grow. This means the bamboo can be used without destroying the forest. After harvesting, the Moso bamboo stems are split and the outer skin is removed. By modifying the bamboo strips with a special unique Thermo-Density® process, the dimensional stability of bamboo is improved by circa 50%. The heat-treatment at 200°C also ensures protection against superficial fungi and provides the highest durability class possible. After compressing the heat-treated bamboo strips, the material is stronger and harder than almost any other hardwood.

More about how bamboo is made

A low-maintenance and durable decking

Unfortunately, care-free decks do not exist in combination with a long service life. Under the influence of wind, rain, sun and snow, each decking becomes dirty and the material will weather. Bamboo X-treme® is a low maintenance product. The boards have a brown to dark brown color when installed, which becomes lighter a few weeks after installation. The discoloration does not affect the quality and stability of the boards, the surface becomes only slightly rougher. Without care, the material will become completely gray as a result of UV radiation (comparable to most other types of wood).

Caring for your bamboo garden decking

We recommend yearly cleaning of your deck to remove loose dirt and debris.  If you desire to keep the rich chocolate brown color, in addition to yearly cleaning we recommend a recoating with Messmer’s Bamoo Finish oil. Annual care and cleaning should be done with a stiff bristle brush.

Bamboo X-treme® technical brochure

“We love the rich color it starts with and that it fades to grey so nicely. You can maintain it and keep the rich brown color or you can let it fade on its own and it will still look amazing. The homeowner was thrilled that we found a natural material that would accommodate the low ground clearance and moist environment and even comes with a 25-years warranty.”
