So what makes bamboo a good material to use for decking? In this section we’ll go over the various benefits of bamboo as a material, and for decking in particular, to give it a unique place in decking and architecture.
We’ve listed the top six benefits of bamboo for your decking project:
1. Added Value
Due to the combination of the other elements on this list, bamboo decking is a desirable feature to have in your projects. A more attractive design means a more lucrative result, and bamboo decking achieves this while offering practical benefits and aesthetic beauty.
2. Visual Impact
Bamboo is a beautiful material, and the MOSO® bamboo decking offered by Gripsure has great impact and can make your design stand out.
Sleek and elegant, our bamboo decking evolves over time, weathering in a similar way to expensive hardwood timber from its rich dark brown to a sophisticated silvery-grey.
Bamboo is a stable resource that can provide great grip to a deck. It also has great durability and hardness, comparable to steel. Combined with a 25-year guarantee and an expected lifespan of 30-50 years, our MOSO® bamboo decking offers stability with longevity.
You can further enhance the natural stability of bamboo decking with non-slip from Gripsure, available for both the X-Treme® and N-Durance® versions. This gives your bamboo decking further grip, enabling its use during any season.
The durability and resistance of bamboo enables it to have a variety of applications. From decking to cladding, bamboo is an excellent material which can provide impact and benefits to many facets of your design while offering freedom and design creativity.
The stability and shape of our MOSO® Bamboo X-Treme® decking and non-slip variant also allows for versatility with an end-match system that allows for unlimited lengthways connections, and its symmetrical sides offer a smooth or grooved option.
5. Discrete Fasteners
Made from the same bamboo material as the decking, our MOSO® bamboo clips provide a way to further increase the stability of your decking while blending in with the visuals. These clips prevent metal screws from hindering your design’s potential and make our decking even quicker and easier to install.
Along with the range of advantages when using bamboo for your decking, it also has environmental benefits that can improve the overall ecological impact of your project. These include great sustainability when harvesting and a net-negative carbon footprint over the product’s lifespan.
