Stability

One of the main advantages of the bamboo deck is its stability. Because the panels are made of high temperature modified bamboo fibers that are compressed under high pressure, the material is very stable. Therefore, when the bamboo decking and the wooden decking are soaked in water for 24 hours at the same time, the expansion and deformation rate of the bamboo decking is only half of the wooden floor, or even lower. Compared with solid wood flooring, the physical properties of bamboo flooring are better than solid wood flooring in terms of wear resistance, pressure resistance, moisture resistance, and fire prevention. These advantages make it an ideal material for outdoor decks, and the stability of bamboo decks keeps them beautiful and flat over the years. You can read more about stability of bamboo deck under the Bamboo Decking category.

 

Sustainability

   As businesses continue to push for more sustainable materials, now is a great time to incorporate sustainability into their projects. And the bamboo itself has characteristics that meet all the indicators of sustainable development. Bamboo can be mature in 2-3 years, while wood needs at least 25 years. Bamboo's extremely fast growth rate means that bamboo captures a lot of CO2, and when looking for sustainable products, it's important to choose materials with a small carbon footprint. The sustainability of THJ Infinity Bamboo plywood allows it to be used in many construction projects instead of wood or other composite materials. Bamboo is a renewable resource.

 

          

Double environmental protection

Bamboo has the characteristics of strong radiation resistance. Compared with other plants, bamboo can release 35% more oxygen, which plays an important role in purifying the air and stabilizing the atmospheric composition of the earth. Bamboo has double environmental protection. Bamboo is a natural and environmentally friendly material. It can be grown in 4-6 years and grow naturally once it is planted. Therefore, the country advocates replacing wood with bamboo, plastic with bamboo which can save energy and reduce cutting. At the same time, bamboo has the characteristics of absorbing formaldehyde and purifying indoor air, and the materials (mainly glue) used in bamboo products have very low formaldehyde emissions, which meet the strict European standards E1, E0, and are harmless to the body.                  

 

Safety and durability

Bamboo has high strength, especially tensile strength, Due to its light weight and good elasticity, bamboo is very earthquake-resistant. Bamboo has been used in many famous buildings in the world, such as: New International Airport in Barajas, Madrid, Spain, China World Financial Center and so on. And bamboo is very durable, with a life span of up to 30 years when properly treated. And careful selection of bamboo species, anti-corrosion treatment, the use of auxiliary materials and regular replacement of aging or damaged parts can increase the durability of the house.
