Can all the different color Tonkin bamboo fencing panel options be used outdoors?
The best color to use outdoors is the natural, as it is the lightest in color. We suggest using the natural black or stained mahogany colors in areas that receive little to no sunlight.
What’s the best way to install the Tonkin bamboo fencing inside?
We suggest using a staple gun. Pull the panel tight against the structure and staple the wire to the structures surface.

This particular bamboo fencing is constructed using Tonkin cane or tea stick bamboo. It has been used for fencing, scaffolding, piping and other construction projects for thousands of years in Asia. When processed correctly, bamboo can last for decades.
What happens to bamboo when it ages?
UV light and changing temperatures will turn bamboo a silver-grey color over time.
Can I clean the Tonkin bamboo fence panel?
Yes. We highly recommend cleaning your Tonkin bamboo fence panel by power washing it once a year if being used outdoors. You may just wipe down the panels with a damp cloth if the panel is installed indoors.
Can I stain or restore the Tonkin bamboo fence panels?
Yes. Bamboo restores itself very well. However, we suggest waiting until the bamboo has weathered before staining. Overtime the waxy cellulose fibers on the surface of the bamboo will wear off. This will allow the bamboo to easily take on the color of the stain.
How do I cut the Tonkin bamboo fence panel?
The best tool to lower the height of a fence panel is a common circular saw with a 140-teeth plywood blade. If you need to cut down the width of a panel, wire cutters will easily cut the wire holding the panel together. Simply cut the wire about two bamboo canes longer than you need, remove the extra canes and wrap the extra wire around the last bamboo cane.
How do I prevent Tonkin bamboo fence panels from cracking?
Bamboo does have a natural tendency to crack. You can reduce the chances of the bamboo cracking by drilling holes in each section between the nodes to release air, by running a long object such as a broomstick through all the nodes or the entire pole, or apply a clear sealant to the bamboo to lessen the chances of cracking.
How do I avoid discoloration in the Tonkin bamboo fence panel?
Sunlight will change the color over time but a sealant with strong UV resistant properties will help protect the bamboo.
How do I keep the Tonkin bamboo fence panel from collecting mold or mildew?
Using a sealant with a strong fungicide will minimize or even prevent the growth of mold or mildew on your bamboo fence panel.
