1948 RJ Beverwijk
The gate that seamlessly matches our bamboo screen Giant Black. This Giant gate is custom-made in the Netherlands and is of high quality.
The base consists of a galvanised steel frame and the sides are finished with planks of Azobe hardwood. The front and back of this garden door are lined with halved bamboo poles from Indonesia averaging 6-8 cm wide and the total thickness of the gate is about 10 cm.
The gate comes with the fixing materials, a stainless steel door lock with key and a door handle. You can easily install the bamboo gate door yourself by hanging it between 2 hardwood garden posts. These hardwood posts are not included with the gate door, but you can easily reorder them.
When ordering, choose the correct direction of rotation. The rotation direction is determined from your own garden, looking at the place where the gate should be.
The hinges are on the left side of the door, the door handle is on the right and the door opens inwards.
The hinges are on the right side of the door, the door handle is on the left and the door opens inwards.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGAfter installing the gate, you can apply our Bamboo Protector, a specially developed colourless/transparent stain that protects bamboo from tarnishing and discolouration. With outdoor use, bamboo will grey and discolour, just like all natural materials. We therefore recommend treating bamboo annually, preferably in spring, with our Black Bamboo Renovator, a specially developed stain that protects the bamboo and restores its colour.
Black Bamboo Renovator is easy to apply to cleaned bamboo using a brush. When doing so, use thin layers and spread Black Bamboo Renovator well. For cleaning bamboo, you can use our Bamboo Cleaner. In case of persistent dirt / deposits, bamboo can also be sprayed with a high-pressure cleaner. But at a suitable distance to avoid damage.
A SHINY RESULTAn alternative maintenance product is also available. This is Bamboo Booster. Bamboo Booster is a natural oil that can easily be applied with a cloth. With this oil, you get a nice shiny result. The oil protects and nourishes the bamboo, but does not slow down the process of discolouration. Bamboo Booster can be applied several times a year for optimal results. The oil can only not be combined with our Protector and Renovator stain.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
