Moso® Bamboo X-treme® cladding is a durable, environmentally responsible alternative for increasingly scarce hardwood varieties. Carpentier supplies this cladding in combination with the smart Grad installation system for quick and easy installation.
Solid Bamboo X-treme® cladding profiles are made of bamboo strips that are compressed and thermally modified at a temperature of 200°C. This unique heat treatment increases the stability, compactness and hardness of the bamboo boards without the use of chemical agents. Thermo bamboo cladding is designated as durability class 1 and fire safety class B-s1-d0 (EN 13501-1), which permits its use under the most stringent fire safety requirements, such as in apartment buildings and commercial properties. This means that architects can add thermo bamboo cladding to any project with no limitations on design. Like hardwoods, thermo bamboo weathers attractively over the years to a natural grey patina.
This unique, ecologically responsible cladding requires very little maintenance. Since it is so compressed, thermo bamboo is quick to dry and virtually non-absorbent, and thus much less susceptible to mould and algae. Moreover, thermo bamboo cladding is not prone to shrinkage and swelling as temperatures fluctuate. All in all, bamboo cladding boards perform even better than the best tropical hardwood varieties, making them the ideal choice for outdoor projects!
Carpentier supplies Bamboo X-treme® cladding with the Grad invisible installation system. The QuickClip® profiles ensure that installation is quick and easy and that results are seamless every time. With clips pre-mounted on aluminium joists, all you need to do is click the bamboo boards in place and they are automatically aligned. Installing cladding with QuickClip® profiles means considerable time savings for woodworking professionals.
Woodworking professionals can reduce installation time by up to 50% by using our QuickClip® products instead of traditional installation methods.
Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant, and as such it provides a plentiful source of building material. Products are guaranteed to last 25 years, during which the original plant will have regrown to produce another five harvests. Just like the HOTwood bamboo decking boards in our range, bamboo cladding has a negative CO2 footprint over its lifetime. This makes it a sustainable, ecologically responsible alternative for increasingly scarce tropical hardwoods. Moreover, with its extremely fast rate of growth and virtually limitless availability, all around the world bamboo is increasingly seen as natural resource with plenty of potential for scaled-up implementation.
Bamboo X-treme® cladding is PEFC and/or FSC® certified.
Installation with QuickClip® profiles is a circular technique, since boards featuring the Grad installation system can be easily dismantled and reinstalled elsewhere with no chance of damage. In other words, QuickClip® bamboo cladding is 100% recyclable. A set dismantling keys enables you to remove and replace cladding boards quickly and easily.
If you need to replace a bamboo cladding board or access electrical wiring behind the cladding, for example, thermo bamboo cladding boards can be easily clicked loose using a set of Grad dismantling keys. It couldn’t be easier.
