Products Spotlight: Practical and Sturdy Construction Grade Bamboo

As we ring in the New Year, we wanted to take a moment to send our best wishes for much joy and success.  We raise our glasses to a future of prosperity, a world at peace, and a stronger economy!

Speaking of strong, this month we are featuring our Bamboo products. Our Tre-Gai bamboo has twice the compressive strength of concrete and roughly the same strength-to-weight ratio of steel in tension.

As with its sister plants, about 64% of bamboo is from Southeast Asia.  Most of us don’t think of bamboo’s capability as strong.  Tre-Gai Bamboo is considered to be one of five species that contain extremely strong fiber.

What makes it so durable is where it’s grown, how it’s harvested as well as how it will be used.

More Benefits of Bamboo

  • The species, Tre-Gai and Solid Bamboo, are versatile and sturdy.
  • Since amaZulu’s bamboo products are pressure treated they are also long-lasting.
  • If desired, fire retardant can be added at the time of pressure treating for extra safety.
  • It creates an authentic atmosphere for your installations.
  • Natural coloring also adds to that authenticity.

Watch our video explaining the comparisons of different types of bamboo and their construction application.
