Why Bamboo Composite Decking

The Bamboo Difference

Why Do We Use Bamboo Composite in Our Decks?

There are many great benefits to using bamboo in our revolutionary decking systems. Traditional treated lumber is on its way out and bamboo is on the horizon, but why? Well, treated lumber can be dangerous and is being regulated by some states. 

Bamboo vs. wood decksWood Vs. Bamboo Decks

  • Wood decks just don't last as long as a bamboo composite deck can. Bamboo is a great filler component in our decking systems because it has a low oil content and doesn't clump like wood does. Bamboo particles do not clump leading to an even, homogenous product.
  • Wood decks are more susceptible to mold and mildew damage. Mold and mildew cannot feed on our products. Additives help prevent mold and mildew from feeding on our deck boards. However, it is important to note that mold can still live on the bamboo, but it cannot deteriorate the integrity of the deck. 
  • Bamboo grows much faster than wood! It is fully grown in only three years.

Strand Woven Bamboo Vs. Bamboo Composite 

It is also important to mention that bamboo can have a bad reputation. This is because of strand woven bamboo which is more similar to wood than to wood plastic composite. Bamboo composite and strand woven bamboo are not the same!

Why We Use Fortress Bamboo

Fortress creates their long-lasting decking by mixing bamboo composites into the polymer matrix (plastic) to create a durable yet beautiful deck. While they are creating each plank, the particles are encased in polymer preventing moisture from spreading through the material. This prevents rot, mold and mildew, and more.
