A decking of bamboo for commercial use

For restaurants and hotels, the decking is an indispensable part of the company. The quality of the decking reflects the overall atmosphere and ambiance for guests. Commercial decking made of Bamboo X-treme® Decking Boards, the sustainable, fast-growing alternative to hardwood and other materials, offers several advantages.

Natural and ecological material

A wooden decking is popular thanks to its natural appearance and the high-quality image of hardwood. Non-renewable materials, such as WPC or PVC, are used because they offer a long lifespan and require minimal care. Whether you prefer the ecological durability, the stability and quality, the minimal maintenance or the safety, Bamboo X-treme® is more than a fully-fledged alternative to these materials. Bamboo grows extremely fast and is processed in our factory to meet the highest standards. For example, it can withstand thousands of dancing guests around the pool of Ushuäia Club Ibiza in Spain.

Stylish and durable decking

The company Theune Spa Management aims to build modern and advanced wellness facilities, where quality comes first. Outside, where the deck boards are exposed to the weather without protection, the demands on the material are very high. This is why the company tested Bamboo X-treme® well before making the decision to install 20,000 ft² of decking at Vabali Spa in Berlin. Years later, other Vabali Spa sites were also equipped with decking made of the sustainable and ecological material.

Read the success story

"Maintenance costs may increase disproportionately if poor materials are used. We have installed no less than 20,000 ft² of decking, a considerable amount. By choosing bamboo instead of tropical wood, or any other classic material, we can contribute to the protection of natural resources. MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® is optically very stylish and has the best certifications."

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 392°F 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 and extremely suitable for commercial decking.

A low-care and durable decking

Care-free decks do not exist in combination with a long service life. Under the influence of users and weather conditions, every decking becomes dirty and the material will weather. We consider Bamboo X-treme® as a low to medium 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).

Bamboo Decking care & cleaning

We recommend yearly cleaning of your deck to remove loose dirt and debris. If you desire to keep the rich dark brown color, in addition to yearly cleaning, we recommend re-coating with Messmer’s MOSO® Bamboo Finish Oil. Annual care and cleaning should be done with a stiff bristle brush.
