MOSO Bamboo Solid Panel
- story by MaterialDistrict
MOSO Bamboo Solid Panels is a visually appealing material that consists of multiple layers of bamboo. These bamboo panels are especially interesting in applications where the side of the panel remains visible, such as staircases and furniture.
MOSO Bamboo Solid Panels are available in two sizes (2440 x 1220 mm, 3000 x 700 mm) and the thickness ranging from 16 to 40 mm. The panels are available in various configurations, ranging from one to five layers, in several colours (natural and caramel) and several styles (Side Pressed, Plain Pressed, High Density). Furthermore, on request the panels can be supplied with FSC-label and formaldehyde free adhesive (E0 norm).
Up to five layers of bamboo are pressed on top of each other to create panels that are hard, stable, and durable. The hardness, density and dimensional stability of MOSO Bamboo Solid Panel is similar or better than good quality hardwoods.
Made from rapidly renewable bamboo, being CO2 neutral, and backed up with certification, MOSO solid panel contributes to a higher score in LEED and BREEAM. The giant bamboo species Moso however, has an immense growing capacity and therefore is a highly renewable resource. Moso grows to maturity within five years, compared to over fifty years for most hardwood species.
