Products Made From Bamboo – Solid Bamboo Poles | Bamboo Slats | Bamboo Paneling

Posted on: May 14th, 2015

Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world.  It’s no wonder people have been using products made from bamboo as a building material for hundreds of years. And as the use of bamboo continues to increase in popularity, we’ve seen this beautiful, eco-friendly material used for furniture, flooring, fences, and even entire structures.

Bamboo products used for construction purposes must be treated to resist decay and insects. All of the natural bamboo amaZulu, Inc. offers have been pre-treated to withstand insects and a variety of climate conditions. Depending on the wall thickness of the bamboo, it can be used for both decorative and structural projects.

What are some construction products made from bamboo?

Solid Bamboo Poles

Solid Bamboo Poles from amaZulu, Inc. are available in three different lengths and have the greatest wall thickness of any of our bamboo products. This density prevents the bamboo from splitting during construction and protects it from your climate’s temperatures. Its slightly flexible nature makes it ideal for a variety of projects, from striking architectural accents to tiki bars to fencing.

Bamboo Slats

amaZulu, Inc. Bamboo Slats have been split in half and sanded down, providing a flat surface on one side of the bamboo. This process makes them ideal for covering surfaces in applications that need an island theme. Available in natural color or stained mahogany, our bamboo slats are perfect for covering pre-existing surfaces, such as bamboo ceiling panels, bamboo wall panels, load-bearing beams and more.

Bamboo Paneling

Bamboo Paneling, or Tambor paneling, is similar to bamboo slats, as it can easily be applied to any pre-existing surface. Bamboo paneling is created from cutting bamboo into 1/2”-wide strips and applying them to a drop cloth. This manufacturing technique allows the bamboo paneling to be rolled which reduces shipping costs. amaZulu, Inc. bamboo paneling is available in two colors, natural and mottled.

More Benefits of Bamboo Building Materials

  • The species, Tre-Gai and Solid Bamboo, are versatile and sturdy.
  • Since amaZulu, Inc.’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.
