Product Information

  Porous outer layer - easy to paint
  Available in many different diameters and lengths

Gigantochloa apus also known as Tali Bamboo or String Bamboo is a medium diameter, thick walled bamboo species native to Java, Indonesia. This strong construction grade bamboo is often used in scaffolding and as a building material for bridges.


  • Tali bamboo poles are fairly straight with a slight taper.
  • Compared to other bamboo species, Tali bamboo poles have a porous outer layer which makes it easy to apply paints or varnishes if desired. No scraping or sanding is required.
  • Gigantochloa apus is medium sized, very strong and a durable bamboo species. The strength properties of this species were tested in air dry condition (M.C. 15.1 %) and gave the following results. Average MOR: 87.5 N/mm², maximum crushing stress varies between 27.29 and 48.64 kN/mm². Average tensile strength was 298.9 kN/mm². Average shear strength varied between 7.47 and 7.65 kN/mm².
  • These bamboo poles are boron treated to prevent potential powder post beetle attacks.

Common Uses

  • Economically the most important bamboo in Java, especially in the handicraft and furniture industries.
  • Tali bamboo is used extensively for building materials such as for roofings, scaffoldings, bridges, walls, fences, etc.
  • Gigantochloa apus is called Tali Bamboo ('Tali' means String) by most Indonesians, because it is an excellent bamboo to make strong strips with the suppleness of leather.

Working with Bamboo


  • The diameter of each bamboo pole varies. Our stated average diameters are always measured at the base (or the thickest part of the bamboo pole).
  • A natural property of bamboo poles is that they are thicker at the base than at the top. The taper percentage for Tali bamboo poles is about 10-15% over a length of 3 meters.
  • Bamboo is a natural product, therefore bamboo poles are never 100% straight.
  • Each bamboo pole is unique, therefore color differences are to be expected.
  • Vertical cracks can/will occur in bamboo poles, especially when used outdoors. Just like wood, bamboo expands or shrinks when temperature or humidity conditions change. Cracks, however, have no effect on the structural integrity of bamboo.
  • Bamboo used in outdoor conditions will weather over time. We advice to treat bamboo with Bamboo Booster or Bamboo Protector tot preserve its natural color.

Bamboe luifel

Deze zomer hebben wij een bamboe luifel gemaakt en gebruik gemaakt van bamboe palen en frame met steigerbuisverbindingen. We hebben de luifel zelf ontworpen en samen met twee vrienden opgebouwd in 5 uur tijd. In combinatie met het witte zeil en zwarte elastiek ziet er zowel warm en natuurlijk als industrieel uit.

De drie staanders hebben we geankerd door drie emmertjes met beton te gieten en daarin een dunnere bamboe paal te zetten. Hieroverheen schuiven we gemakkelijk de staanders. Belangrijk was voor ons dat we de luifel gemakkelijk op en af kunnen breken. Dat lukt!

Ondertussen heeft de luifel al windkracht 7 doorstaan; er kwam amper beweging in. Andere campinggasten hebben ons al uitgeroepen tot de plek met de mooiste luifel:-).

Bamboe xylofoon

De Molenwijkschool in Boxtel is een school die in contact staat met natuur en groen. Vooral het schoolplein is een prachtig voorbeeld hoe natuur en educatie hand in hand kunnen gaan. Vanuit de school en ouders van de Tuincommissie worden er jaarlijks plannen uitgezet om het schoolplein nog mooier maar vooral leuker te maken. Met de bamboe van bamboo import is er voor de kinderen een xylofoon gebouwd. Prachtige muziek klinkt nu naast het lachen op het schoolplein.
