Bamboo & Sustainability

Bamboo Indonesia, Black Bamboo : A Cedar (probably the first material that comes to mind when you think about fences) takes upwards of forty years to grow to a size where it can be harvested, and when it's harvested, that's it. The tree is dead, the roots will die, and it's another forty years until a new one grows. We've all heard about the ecological dangers of deforestation. It throws entire ecosystems off balance, reduces the earth's oxygen production, and gives rise to soil erosion and runoff. And these dangers are only the headings of their own lists of environmental consequences. There is no deforestation with bamboo, roots continue to leave. Unlike traditional lumber, the demand for bamboo is less than its growth rate, so using bamboo as a primary material for construction of our products helps keep our forests where and as they are.

Strength & Splitting

Bamboo Indonesia, Black Bamboo : Bamboo isn't wood. It's clasified as a  grass but just as strong as wood, if not stronger. In terms of tensile strength, it's actually even stronger than steel. It's lightweight, it's  considered decorative, and it comes in many varieties.

Bamboo fibers contain silica, the substance associated with the glassy sturdiness of sand, which helps bamboo poles resist rot and termites.
Nearly all bamboo, especially poles of larger diameters (1” or greater), will split over time, but splitting doesn't mean the bamboo is weakening. Bamboo's hard and dense skin keep the poles strong and sturdy despite this splitting. When working with a raw organic building material like bamboo one has to accept (or embrace) these natural qualities. Splitting is simply the nature of the material. We assure you that it will not compromise the strength or lifespan of your fence. Many customers appreciate the natural appearance splitting brings. If you wish the minimal splitting, regular maintanance is recommended.
