Bamboo Esterilla is a mat of flattened Guadua bamboo canes between 30 and 40 cm wide and 400 cm long. The bamboo canes are first dried and then flattened. This keeps them partially attached to each other and makes them very flexible.
Bamboo Esterilla is used for various structural applications. It is often used as bamboo wall or ceiling panels in tropical architecture. They are also ideally suited for hiding poles at, for example, decors and festivals.
Bamboo Esterilla is a versatile product and can be applied in many different ways. For the possibilities and more information, please contact our customer service.
Each Bamboo Esterilla is unique. Colour differences and variations in width is normal. As these are flattened, there will be parts that are looser together.
MAINTENANCEAfter installation, our recommendation is to treat this Bamboo Esterilla with our Bamboo Booster Oil. This applies a protective and nourishing layer making the Bamboo Esterilla less susceptible to external influences.
You can easily applyBamboo Booster Oil several times a year with a cloth for optimal results. Use thin layers and spread the Bamboo Booster Oil well.

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.
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.
