The most durable bamboo decking boards
In addition to Ipe-coloured, 3-metre-long bamboo decking boards, we also offer solid bamboo decking boards in the Bamboo X-treme® collection by Moso®. These are made from compressed strips of thermo bamboo. Carpentier is the only dealer to supply them in combination with the unique Grad® mounting system, which ensures fast, easy installation and a seamless finish. We also supply edge boards to hide and protect the ends of the decking boards. If you opt to leave board ends uncovered, we advise you to apply a protective coat of wax oil to prevent end checking and cracking.
Our bamboo decking boards are PEFC and/or FSC® certified, and are the only durability class 1 bamboo decking on the market. Thanks to a unique, patented heat-treatment process, involving heat treatment rather than chemical processing, boards are extremely hard and stable. The 200°C thermal treatment also ensures that boards are not susceptible to mould. And bamboo decking boards not only have an exceptionally long lifespan and a beautiful, natural appearance, they are also outstanding in terms of environmental sustainability.
These heat-treated bamboo decking boards are pre-oiled. This means they remain smooth and stunning and take longer to go grey than our thermo ash decking boards for example. Bamboo decking boards acquire a sturdy look as they weather and turn an attractive range of grey tones..
Their slightly convex profile also ensures perfect water run-off. All of these advantages make bamboo an outstanding wood variety for intensive use, and an ideal solution for the sandy conditions of coastal project settings.
We have two varieties in our range: one is treated with an oil that is almost transparent, the other with an oil the colour of Ipe.

Bamboo decking maintenance
Our Moso® Bamboo X-treme® decking boards require regular maintenance. With the sun, the wind and the rain, the surface of the boards will become lighter and greyer in colour, giving them a very natural look. We recommend you clean your bamboo decking once a year, or as needed, with Woca Exterior Wood Cleaner or Woca Exterior Deep Cleaner. Once the decking is completely dry, you can then apply Woca Exterior Wood Oil Teak to protect the boards.
