Two in one: bamboo/recycled plastic decking
Cali Bamboo, a leading manufacturer of green building materials made primarily from bamboo, is now offering composite decking made from bamboo and recycled plastic. BamDeck Composite Bamboo Decking is composed of 60% recycled bamboo fiber and 40% recycled HDPE plastics. (High density polyethylene plastic products are labeled with the number “2” and include bottles, laundry detergent containers, plastic bags and water pipes.)
Tests performed by a licensed third party -- in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) regulations and specifications -- determined that BamDeck Composite is more than twice as hard and four times stronger than other decking products, according to the manufacturer. Tests show the product absorbs one tenth as much water and scores lower on flame and smoke tests. Cali Bamboo’s decking is also slip resistant and compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Two allow for a variety of installation styles.
BamDeck is available for purchase nationwide and comes with a 10-year commercial and 25-year residential warranty. The decking is offered in two different surface textures (ridged or smooth) and four colors: caramel, coffee, slate, natural.
Based in San Diego, Cali Bamboo services residential and commercial building projects across North America with a wide range of products including bamboo flooring, fencing, composite decking, plywood, poles, paneling and more.
