PROFESSIONALS

Vanwege de extreme slijtvastheid en het duurzame karakter van solid bamboo is het uitstekend geschikt voor het gebruik in de openbare ruimte. Solid bamboo heeft duurzaamheidsklasse 1, de hoogste duurzaamheidsklasse, waardoor de levensduur is ook langer dan die van de meeste soorten hardhout. Uw investering verdient zichzelf daardoor op termijn terug. Daarnaast is bamboe prima bestand tegen vandalisme en tegen het Nederlandse klimaat.

Solid Bamboo is the largest Dutch supplier of heat-pressed bamboo in this market and keeps the most commonly used sizes in stock.

Extra strong

There are several production methods for making heat-pressed bamboo fibres – i.e., solid bamboo. The patented production process of our solid bamboo includes a number of major advantages, such as its extremely high strength: D120 – 130. Compare that with: spruce wood has a strength class of C30, Western Red Cedar C18, Angelim Vermelho D40, Bangkirai D50 and Cumaru D60.

Solid bamboo has extensive experience with a wide range of projects, including street furniture on the boulevard in Bergen. The bamboo can withstand the salty sea breeze, one of the most difficult environments for any type of wood.

Less maintenance
The special coating R-8VX is applied to more and more of the bench boards we supply. The advantage is that the bamboo boards still look like new even after years of use. Far less dirt and algae adhere to the bamboo. Thanks to the moisture-regulating effect, this coating never peels. Solid bamboo boards with this coating are not only ‘demolition-proof’, they are also easy to clean. Dirt and graffiti can be removed more easily.

Solid bamboo street furniture requires less maintenance than the well-known hardwood public benches. That’s another reason why investing in solid bamboo for public spaces is a wise decision: the investment pays for itself, because the long-term maintenance costs are much lower.
