Strong, sexy and sustainable – the magic of bamboo

Bamboo is a great choice for a wide range of building-related solutions – specialists Plantation Bamboo outline some of the key reasons

Naturally beautiful

Bamboo products are an ideal option for bringing a warm, natural ambience to your space – wherever that space is.

Versatile in the extreme, bamboo brings a refined feel to both modern and traditional decors.

In addition, Plantation Bamboo's bamboo products can be finished with a range of colour stain/lacquer options – resulting in innovative and amazing custom solutions for your building projects. 

Hard and durable in the extreme

Bamboo is extremely hardy and durable and can be used in many heavy duty applications. 

It has greater tensile strength by weight, than steel – and it withstands compression better than concrete! 

Eco-friendly (but not on the panda's menu)

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, growing up to one metre a day – making it rapidly renewable!

In fact, hardwood and bamboo are the only renewable flooring options available. 

Bamboo also minimises C02 gases and generates up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.

Plantation bamboo products are crafted from the Moso (Phyllostachys Pubescens) species – reassuringly not one eaten by pandas.

Easy to work with and install

  • Flooring – our pre-finished flooring means no messy sanding and finishing – the uniclic (click-locking system) on our compressed bamboo flooring helps for a quick and efficient installation for the installer or DIY’er.
  • Decking – Plantation’s X-treme decking has a special clip system to make installation quicker and more attractive (with no visible fasteners showing) – tongue and groove end-matching results in less wastage and firmer joins.
  • Panels – feedback from joiners is that Plantation Bamboo panels are great to work with and with light sanding provide a beautiful, smooth and natural finish.


Carpet provides the ideal home for dirt, dust and nasty allergens. 

With sleek and natural bamboo floors, you never have to worry – in fact, bamboo flooring is well recognised for its hypo-allergenic properties.

Great Value

Bamboo provides a great value-for-money option for many building projects – across a wide range of joinery solutions, decking or flooring needs. 

An investment in Plantation bamboo will provide lasting value and enjoyment.
