Central and South America grow the ubiquitous and invaluable tropical bamboo species, Guadua Angustifolia Kunth, or simply Guadua. This remarkable construction material is used in a wide range of mainstream applications in Colombia. Not only does this bamboo species has the desirable characteristics of length, width diameter, and durability, but it is also extremely renewable, has a high level of CO2 sequestration and a rapid rate of biomass production. In 1999, a 6.2 earthquake resulted in the Colombian code standardizing of Guadua as seismic-resistant, due to the many Guadua-constructed buildings that withstood little to no damage. Research interest in this area of study has continued to gain momentum since this event.
BAMBOO POLES AND HOW TO USE THEM:
Anyone who spends a few minutes researching bamboo poles will usually find out that, "anything can be done with bamboo!" We love when people say this, although we have to let you all know we do need a little imagination to be able to make what we envision. Now, back again to the statement "anything can be done with bamboo", while it is mostly true, 'anything' isn't a product - Kiln-dried poles as stand-alone items add wonderful accents to any home, bamboo can be custom cut and stained to order to compliment any decor… possibilities are endless, but we need to learn how to transform this wonderful golden grass into something else!
Bamboo poles can be split -we can also provide bamboo slats-, allowing for an even larger variety of custom home interior designs: privacy fences, bamboo fences, bamboo panels, wall panels, & bamboo ceilings are just a few examples of what can be done with The Best Bamboo slats.
Choosing the Right Pole
In terms of color, most people enjoy the natural beauty of bamboo. American Henon provides a subtle olive green silver color, while Guadua Bamboo has a beautiful golden brown tone. Choosing the right species is a matter of taste, as is the decision to stain or flame-treat it.
When you choose to buy bamboo poles, you need to make sure that your provider has all the permits and follows all the harvesting rules. Bamboo is a very versatile plant, but it also has a temper and a timing! When harvesting happens, the cut is extremely important: the outer wall of young bamboo is very thin, as it gets older, it grows thicker on the inside. By the time the best bamboo poles reach 5 years of age, they are extremely thick and excellent for landscaping and lumber. In fact, the best bamboo poles can be manufactured into flooring that is many times stronger than oak!
To be able to judge the age of bamboo, simply turn it on its side. Most timber species, if harvested properly, should have a thick outer wall at the base that slowly tapers off to the top. It is at the end of the pole where the most cracking occurs, so be sure to note whether the end of the pole has an intact node or not.
The Best Bamboo Poles require very little maintenance. As they're dried to <20% moisture, there's very little that changes in temperature and humidity can do to warp or crack the poles. Keep your poles clean by simply washing them with soap and water. We also recommend using warm water with white vinegar, and then it is always a good idea using linseed oil to keep them healthy.
Likewise, stained and fire-treated poles require little maintenance. The color of properly stained bamboo poles will not fade over time. As with all organic products, however, some color fading may occur over the years or if in contact with direct sunlight.
