THERMO bamboo is a solid and high density decking board made of compressed bamboo fibers and a unique patented thermally modification treatment process, making it one of the strongest, hardest and most durable materials on the market to create the perfect space for entertainment and relaxation outdoors.
A unique feature of a THERMO bamboo decking board is the end match tongue and groove: this can only be done with very stable materials and allows connection of an unlimited number of boards in the length.
The special symmetrical shape of the sides offers the possibility to choose between the grooved or the flat surface and allows a quick installation with hidden deck fasteners. Like any untreated tropical hardwood species, THERMO bamboo decking boards, when exposed to outdoor conditions, will get a lighter color over time, creating a very natural look.

- Install a suitable, fixed, stable and durable sub frame.
- Determine which side of the board will used: the grooved or flat side.
- Fix the boards on the sub frame using fasteners(to be Inserted in the grooves of the board) or alternatively with screws(through the surface).
- After installation: make sure proper cleaning and maintenance is done, according to the chosen finish.
- When not applying outdoor oil 1x per year, the deck will fade and the typical bamboo wood grain structure will become less visible.
- Bamboo decking boards are a natural forest product, which varies in colour, grain and appearance. Colour can change fast from dark brown to brown or grey, depending on the maintenance schedule.
- Checks and splinters on the surface and on the end of the decking boards can arise from the different drying characteristics of the surface and cross cut ends. Besides this the surface gets rough. This phenomenon is normal for most wood species and is minimized for this product by its unique production method. Head sides checks can be further minimized by applying wax on cross end sides of the cut boards.
- Splinters and roughness can be removed by cleaning the surface of the decking with the silicium carbid broom or machine disk, the surface will become smooth and splinters are removed.
- Dimensional change or cupping of the boards can occur after installation. This phenomenon is normal for most wood species and is minimized for this product by its unique heat-treated process.
- When using the flat side of the decking boards as surface please note that deformation under influence of climate will be significantly more visible. Deformation of the surface is not considered to be fault of the material.
