WUI approved bamboo decking and siding
Bamboo X-treme decking and siding meet California fire code requirements for WUI (Wildland Urban Interface) zones
Bamboo X-treme® is a rapidly renewable exterior material, made from thermally threated, compressed bamboo strips. Thanks to the unique Thermo-Density® production process, the material is fire resistant without the use of ecologically unfriendly and expensive fire retardants.
Bamboo X-treme WUI approved as a complete decking system
The Bamboo X-treme decking boards are rated compliant in accordance with Chapter 7A California Building Code. The bamboo decking system is tested following US standard ASTM E84, reaching Class A Flame Spread. Testing according to European norm EN13501-1 resulted in a Bfl-s1 classification, which is the best class after non-combustible materials. Being so resistant to fire makes Bamboo X-treme decking a perfect solution for commercial decking applications or domestic installations like rooftops and porches. With over 25 million square foot decking installed since 2008, the year of introduction, MOSO bamboo decking proved to be a durable, sustainable and certified solution. Together with architects, installers and distributors in California, MOSO North America introduces the WUI approved decking and siding as a next step in the introduction of the next generation in sustainable outdoor products.

Bamboo X-treme siding: fire safety without harmful fire retardants
The Bamboo X-treme® siding boards are rated compliant in accordance with Chapter 7A California Building Code. The bamboo siding system is tested following US standard ASTM E84, reaching Class A Flame Spread. Testing according to European norm EN13501-1 resulted in a B-s1-d0 classification, which is the best class after non-combustible materials. Without the use of fire retardants MOSO® bamboo wall siding can be safely installed to cover anything from 1- story bungalows up to multiple story apartment- or office buildings. Bamboo X-treme® siding is not only ecological and fire-safe, but also a low-maintenance product. The siding boards will silver patina over time and do not require lacquer or oil to lengthen the lifetime of the material. Only when the warm dark brown original color is preferred over a natural grey appearance, maintaining with a penetrating hardwood oil will bring back the brown color.
