Bamboo ceiling for a natural atmosphere

A natural ceiling, one made of bamboo for example, creates a warm atmosphere in any interior. At the same time, there are high requirements for fire safety, which can be a challenge, especially with natural materials. MOSO® offers various products that can be used to install a durable bamboo ceiling.

Bamboo offers several benefits in comparison with other materials for ceiling covering:

  • CO2 neutral
  • endless resource

  • The natural look with, depending on the chosen bamboo style, a linear to wild line pattern on the ceiling,
  • The low emissions contribute to a healthy indoor climate,
  • CO2 neutral MOSO® Bamboo products contribute to sustainable building, including additional credits for LEED and BREEAM building certification,
  • The high stability of laminated and compressed bamboo in panels and beams.

MOSO® Bamboo Products

A bamboo ceiling can be created in a variety of ways. MOSO® offers a broad scale of products which can be installed in several different ceiling systems.  The choice of product depends on the type of installation, the combination with other (bamboo) materials and the design. 

The appearance of a bamboo ceiling

People perform better and feel more comfortable in a natural environment. By adding bamboo to the ceiling, a natural atmosphere can quickly be added to any room. This can be in the form of ceiling panels but also through a grill system with bamboo beams. If desired, the bamboo ceiling material can be enhanced with additional acoustic properties by means of perforations or milled-out patterns.

Flowing bamboo ceiling in CityLife

Bamboo: you simply cannot ignore it in the largest shopping center in Italy. The CityLife Shopping District, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, shows the versatility of this natural material. With its distinctive curves and smooth forms, the architect brings an unprecedented dynamic into the shopping mall. Thanks to the curves in the ceiling, an impression of motion is created. The high density and hardness of MOSO® High Density® Caramel bamboo not only ensure a very high durability, but also meet strict fire safety requirements.

Bamboo beams in a ceiling system

Bamboo beams in all kinds of styles and colors are often used in a ceiling system. The beams can be profiled to suit any system, and MOSO® supplies custom-made beams for large surfaces. Thanks to their very high density, MOSO® High Density® beams offer a better fire resistance than most other natural materials, which need to be treated with a fire resistant impregnation system.

Bamboo veneer for ceiling covering

Bamboo veneer is very flexible and can be pressed on different materials. Veneer is extremely suitable for pressing on fire-retardant materials. For the world-famous bamboo ceiling in Barajas International Airport in Madrid, MOSO® developed a ceiling board consisting of layers of bamboo veneer with fire resistant impregnation. The boards are also available with a construction of layers of bamboo veneer and fiberglass. This combines the highest requirements for fire safety with the flexibility and natural appearance of bamboo.

CO2 neutral bamboo

MOSO® offers CO2 neutral, durable bamboo products for every type of ceiling. An official life cycle analysis (LCA), conducted by TU Delft according to ISO 14040/44, proves that MOSO® solid bamboo products are CO2 neutral or better over their full product lifecycle. Partly thanks to these results, MOSO® Bamboo products can be used to achieve additional credits for sustainable building certification such as LEED and BREEAM.
