These 3mm thin striped natural bamboo sheets measure 600mm x 400mm. Bamboo is a versatile product and these thin striped sheets can be cut by hand or on the laser cutter. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing, renewable resources in the world. It absorbs CO2 in large quantities. With its properties comparable to hardwood, bamboo is the ideal alternative to increasingly scarce tropical hardwoods.

Properties: The bamboo strips are positioned side by side and glued together. This creates a narrow line pattern with the bamboo nodes visible in a subtle way.

Although giant Bamboo is a grass and not a wood, the fully mature bamboo has hardwood like qualities insomuch that it is hard and durable. This means it can be used as flooring, decking and as wall panels. Because the bamboo is in strips and also because of its natural properties it will shrink and swell less than most solid woods. This means that bamboos is an incredibly stable material.

Harvesting: After 4-5 years the bamboo stems are ready for harvest. This is very fast compared to hardwoods and one of the main reasons why bamboo is ecological. After harvesting the stems are split lengthwise to strips and the bark is removed.

It reaches its final length of up to 20 meters within a couple of months (with a speed of up to 1 meter a day during the growing season!). It takes the stem around 4-5 years to mature and acquire its excellent hardwood like characteristics (hardness, strength, dimensional stability). This stands in stark contrast with hardwoods. These take over 50 years to mature, are increasingly scarce and often more expensive.

Sustainable and Green: Bamboo is an endless resource. It grows faster than any other plant, up to 1 meter per day! Each year the 4-5 year stems are harvested, providing room for the younger bamboo shoots to grow to maturity.

During growth bamboo absorbs more CO2 than is released during production. They are therefore it is CO2 neutral over the complete lifecycle.

One bamboo plant consists of several poles and new shoots will grow from the mother plant every year. Generally 20-25% of the poles in a sustainable bamboo forest or plantation can be harvested each year. This happens without decreasing the number of poles per hectare! The plant does not die after harvesting (as with trees), so no deforestation. On the contrary, by harvesting the mature plants, the yield and quality of the plantation actually increases.

Bamboo is easily recycled, for example as resource to make chipboard. Alternatively, it can be burnt in a biomass energy plant to create green electricity. In this way the use of fossil fuels is reduced.The sustainability, safety and quality of bamboo products is independently proven by the most respected ecolabels and certification programs in the market. Certifications include; FSC, Leed & Breeam, Nordic Ecolable Certification, Indoor emissions, LCA Carbon Footprint, CE Marking, Fire Safety Wall/floor/ceiling, EN 350 Durability.

A healthy option: Bamboo products are also a healthy choice as they are anti-static, anti-allergic and have low emissions of volatile organic compounds.
