Bamboo can be worked with so that it provides a superb solution for paving outdoor areas, such as swimming pools, terraces, patios, walkways etc. Generally speaking, bamboo as a plant is incredibly resistant to moisture, and if it is worked with properly, can withstand adverse weather conditions such as the sun, snow, rain, etc.
Our dashboards have been heat treated to ensure the wood is more durable; thermo treatment makes the core more stable and means it has greater resistance to moisture and fungi.
Our decking is constructed in 18 mm thick carbonised vertical bamboo, which is already oiled, and with clips along the sides. All four corners are bevelled so that it can be walked on comfortably and pleasantly; Once the planks have been assembled, they remain slightly positioned apart to avoid any water from stagnating and so that the air can circulate; the exterior bamboo panel has a smooth side and a chiselled side with anti-slip, and this can also be installed separately on both sides.
Just like all types of decking, we would advise you to feed it with oil at least twice a year to prevent all of the cores from becoming ingrained when they are exposed to direct sunlight and to adverse weather conditions.
