The next generation in decking

The solid bamboo decking boards MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® are made from compressed, thermally treated bamboo strips. Bamboo X-treme® is suitable for outdoor applications, especially as decking. The extreme stability of the material ensures a very durable bamboo terrace, with the natural appearance of hardwood.

Bamboo with highest durability class

A unique heat treatment process, called Thermo-Density®, provides Bamboo X-treme® the highest durability class possible within the appropriate EU norms*. The Thermo-Density® process  modifies and removes sugar molecules which are naturally present in untreated bamboo. With this treatment bamboo is no longer a food source for fungi and micro-organisms. Furthermore, the process increases the density – making the bamboo planks very hard.

Install decking quickly & economically

Thanks to the special symmetrical shape of the sides, the bamboo decking boards offer the possibility to choose between either the ribbed or the flat surface of the plank. With the MOSO® clips installing the deck is quick and easy. The clips are placed in the grooves at the sides and screwed into the sub beams. With this method it is not necessary to predrill the decking boards.

More stable than any hardwood

Bamboo X-treme® decking is very stable, as a result of the thermo treatment combined with High Density® compression of the bamboo strips. Even after many years after installation, Bamboo X-treme® boards stay straight , as many reference projects show. The boards are more stable than any tropical hardwood and therefore can be produced with head side tongue and groove connection. That is why the installation can be done without gaps between the head sides, which not only looks very appealing, but is also much faster and easier to install compared to non-profiled decking boards.

Ecological replacement of tropical hardwoods

The MOSO® extreme outdoor flooring series has many features similar to (tropical) hardwoods. However, extreme outdoor timber is made from MOSO bamboo, which is a very fast growing renewable resource (up to 1 meter per day!). But harvesting does not lead to deforestation, because bamboo plants do not die after the bamboo is harvested. Like other hardwoods, extreme outdoor wood turns gray when exposed to the outside world, giving a beautiful, natural appearance similar to weathered hardwoods.
