At amaZulu, we supply both synthetic and natural bamboo poles. We provide a variety of options for both indoor and outdoor applications. Common uses for natural bamboo poles include bar fronts, fences panels, tiki roof supports, wall treatments, and much more.
Natural bamboo is a sustainable alternative to hardwoods that can add a tropical feel to any commercial or residential project. The quality of bamboo species cannot be matched by wood, in part because of their amazing weight to weight ratio.
Another benefit to using solid bamboo poles as a building material is how quickly they can be regrown after harvesting. It could take 30 years or more to replace a forest of pine, spruce, fir, cedar, or hemlock. Bamboo takes less than a third of that time to reach maturity. This ability to grow fast makes bamboo groves more efficient and environmentally-friendly.
Faux bamboo poles are beneficial when sleeving metal fence posts or structural beams. Their hollow cores also allow conduits and wires to be threaded through their center and hidden from sight.
Many builders think of faux bamboo as a material exclusively for indoor use, but if coated with a marine-grade finish, faux bamboo can be used for outdoor applications as well.
Faux bamboo is ideal for projects that demand uniform materials. Natural bamboo will taper and has some curves, whereas faux bamboo can be created to be all one diameter and straight. See our example to the right for a pool barrier. End caps are also available.
Bamboo poles make a great impression on guests by creating an inviting themed environment. Customers respond warmly to tiki huts decorated with natural bamboo poles. Bamboo slats can be easily installed to create an attractive bar front. If you have an outdoor seating area, bamboo fencing adds an aesthetically pleasing element to your business as well as privacy for guests.
