Do you know how we manufacture our Bamboo products?

There are different stages of processing bamboo according to the final product that is desired:
The havest of the bamboo culm.
From the plant to the bamboo poles or fence.
All products are made from carefully selected bamboo. The bamboo must be mature to provide the best strength, stability and durability.
Therefore, great attention should be paid to the location where bamboo is grown and how it is harvested. Determine the origin and age of bamboo is very important to ensure the right hardness and color.

The sugar content in almost all plants varies with the seasons. The dry season is the period of dormancy. During this period, the bamboo plant uses its nutrient reserves for the next growing season, sugar content and moisture content is lower, which reduces the chances of insect attack and the possibility of further cracking.

During the rainy season, starch and moisture content in the bamboo is higher. It is also the time when new shoots emerge and culling operations could damage or destroy the shoots. It is therefore not recommended to harvest the bamboo during the rainy season.

In a bamboo plant, only the main stem of bamboo is used for our products.
The bamboo is cut lengthwise to desired length.

If the stem of bamboo is to stay as pole for construction or to make fences, the knots will be drilled to facilitate infiltration of the solution for preservation treatment against insects and fungi in the stem.
Immediately afterwards, we will proceed to treatment. It is a very important step to ensure the sustainability of our products.
It is important to treat bamboo within a few days after harvest to prevent insect attacks.

In this regard, the season of harvest is also important as we have seen above.

After treatment, the poles are dried.
