Bamboo X-treme® | Wood deck alternative

The fast growing hardwood alternative


The new generation in decking

Wood decking is very popular thanks to its natural appearance. Solid bamboo decking is an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to wood. MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® decks are made of bamboo strips that are thermally treated, compressed, and ultimately shaped into profiled decking boards. This Thermo-Density® process increases stability, ensuring a durable terrace that has the natural look of wood decking.

Bamboo beats wood in stability

Thanks to the Thermo-Density® treatment, by thermally modifying and compressing the bamboo fibers, Bamboo X-treme® is very stable. Even compared to the hardest wood, the bamboo wood deck is more stable and can be installed without gaps at the end of the boards. The end matched system ensures a straight deck with small, regular spacing between the decking planks. A striking solution which is also easier and faster in the installation process compared to wood.

Highest durability for bamboo wood

With the Thermo-Density® process, Bamboo X-treme® wood deck achieves the highest durability class within EU norms* for wood. The density of the bamboo is dramatically increased in the production process which makes the decking very hard. Additionally, bamboo has a naturally higher sugar content than wood. With heat treatment, the sugar is removed and this ensures the bamboo is less susceptible to fungi and micro-organisms.

Tropical hardwood alternative

Because Bamboo X-treme® decks are more stable than tropical hardwood decks, the planks  retain their shape, and the X-treme® decks look better than timber decks over time. Similar to wood, Bamboo X-treme® will turn grey when exposed to the weather. This creates a natural and attractive hardwood look-alike. Consisting of at least 90% fast growing bamboo, the material is a bio-based renewable resource. Moso bamboo grows quickly and matures in five years after which it can be harvested and still continue to grow. Contrarily, hardwood trees are very slow growing and die when harvested. Being a grass, bamboo continues to grow through its roots.

Quick installation of decking

Installing Bamboo X-treme® decking with our unique clips is quick and easy compared to wood decking with screws. The symmetrically shaped planks are profiled with a standard groove on one side and smooth surface on the other. At the time of installation, you can decide which deck surface you prefer, standard groove or smooth. MOSO® clips make the bamboo deck very easy to install. A clip screwed into the sub beams fits neatly in the board’s side-groove, making pre-drilling unnecessary. This saves money and time and aesthetically, produces a a cleaner look without screws.
