Bamboo is considered the wise man timber. Bamboo is the planet’s largest grass. Native species can be found on all continents, (except Antarctica), from the coastal South Pacific islands to the Himalayan mountains.
Bamboo typically reaches full height and width within the first 12 months of its life. During the next few years its cell walls will continue to thicken and grow stronger until it reaches peak maturity, usually between 5 and 7 years.
With its three-year growth cycle and carbon sequestration, it is a uniquely efficient and responsible resource. Even sustainable timber can‘t begin to compare with bamboo as a conscientious building material.
With very little attention, a bamboo shoot can become a structural column within three years, and that building could stand strong for a lifetime.
Though bamboo has traditionally been used throughout Asia, new treatment methods have given it a longer life span. Bamboo India selectively harvested from local sources is treated ecologically, then lab tested to confirm its durability and integrity
Bamboo is strong, with the compressive force of concrete and the strength-to-weight ratio of steel.
