Cali Bamboo Debuts BamDeck® 3G, the First Wide Plank Composite Decking
– The industry’s first composite wide plank decking brings contemporary style to outdoor living –
SAN DIEGO, CA – May 1, 2013
Cali Bamboo®, a leading manufacturer of green building materials made primarily out of bamboo, today introduces BamDeck® 3G Composite Decking with integrated CoreMax™ Technology. This new generation of decking features a Wide Plank line that is 50% wider and the first of its kind in the composite decking industry. BamDeck 3G Wide Plank offers a new contemporary look that also installs 30% faster than standard deck boards.
“Outdoor living continues to become more central to both residential and commercial space planning,” said Jeff Goldberg, Founder and CEO of Cali Bamboo, “We think of our decking as outdoor flooring and the evolution we’ve seen with wide plank flooring was the direction we definitely wanted to go with our decking while staying true to our core principles of sustainability.”
The new third generation BamDeck® takes full advantage of its proven composition formulated of 60% reclaimed bamboo fibers and 40% recycled HDPE plastics such as detergent and milk cartons. The combination of ultra strong bamboo fibers and long lasting durable plastics give rise to a new hybrid material unparalleled in strength, durability, and aesthetic appeal which led to the development of CoreMax™ Technology, not possible with most other composite compositions.
Borrowing from Mother Nature’s brilliant design of bamboo, CoreMax™ Technology implements specially engineered cylindrical chambers that run the length of each board and provide 35% more tensile strength while reducing overall weight by 20%. This new design has tested three times as strong as other composite decking while maintaining industry leading durability and longevity for residential and commercial projects alike.
BamDeck® 3G Composite is termite resistant, time tested, LEED qualified and priced competitively to other composite decking options. It’s available for purchase nationwide and comes with a 10-year commercial and 25-year residential warranty. The decking is offered in standard and wide plank in three colors, including caramel, coffee and slate. Both plank sizes are reversible, interchangeable, and use a hidden fastening system for easy installation. The interchangeable sizes and surfaces allow for a wide breadth of design creativity and personalization – a cornerstone to Cali Bamboo’s product offerings.
