bamboo x-treme® outdoor beams
A special patented heat treatment process and increased density (by compressing the bamboo strips) makes these beams extremely stable and durable.
The elaborate manufacturing process provides MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® outdoor beams the highest durability class possible in the appropriate EU norms.
As with tropical hardwoods, the colour of the material changes under the influence of wind, rain, frost and sunshine (UV-light). This results in a typical weathered natural grey-tone. Regular cleaning and maintenance with a Lasur/oil protects the material against this weather related discolouration.
