HDG Exterior Bamboo

Bamboo is among the most sustainable natural building materials on the planet. Characterized as a wood, bamboo is actually a flowering perennial evergreen plant in the grass family. Giant bamboos are the largest members of the grass family. Bamboo is renewable and sustainable. HDG Exterior Bamboo is mainly used for outdoor decking, wall cladding and fencing. It is outstanding in terms of hardness, dimensional stability, and resistance to decay and insects.

HDG Exterior Bamboo is available in Decking Profiles, Siding Profiles, and Rainclad Siding mounted to batten on sheathing construction installations.
