Our bamboo fence Giant Black is made of 6-9 cm thick bamboo canes. These robust bamboo screens are standard available in different sizes and can also be easily shortened if necessary (both at the bottom and sides). Placing several bamboo screens next to each other will give your garden an exotic and attractive look.
Giant fences are naturally closed at the top to avoid moisture and dirt getting into the bamboo canes. Multiple horizontal bamboo skewers ensure the stability of the bamboo screens.
Bamboo has the characteristic of vertical cracking. This can also happen with your Giant fence and is thus a natural property of the material.
Especially in the hot and dry months of the year, vertical cracks appear in bamboo. In humid and cold weather, the cracks are smaller. The cracking of bamboo does not affect the lifespan of the bamboo fence.
We also have our Giant screens in our inspiration garden. Here you can view the screen and possibly take it directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our materials directly from the source, you are assured of the best price and unique bamboo screens.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGAfter installing the screens, you can apply our Bamboo Protector, a specially developed colourless/transparent stain that protects bamboo from tarnishing and discolouration. Outdoors, bamboo will age and discolour, just like all natural materials. We therefore recommend treating bamboo annually, preferably in spring, with our Balck 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.
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.
