Solid bamboo walls give a room a pleasant and warm look. The bamboo walls have, just like many other Derako walls, very good acoustic characteristics. To improve these acoustic characteristics even further the spaces between the bamboo slats can be fitted with an acoustic non-woven tissue. The bamboo used on the walls is available in four different colours: DT neutral, DT caramel, SP neutral and SP caramel.

Bamboe wandenDerako MOSO bamboo cladding

This Derako bamboo cladding is unique in its kind and combines the sustainable and high quality MOSO bamboo slats with the innovative Derako system. By using Moso Bamboo X-treme within the Derako system, it is now also possible to process solid bamboo without nailing, screwing or drilling. The cladding is easy to assemble and needs no maintenance from a technical point of view.

 

Bamboo is extremely sustainable

Walls fitted with solid bamboo are extremely sustainable. Bamboo walls are just as durable as walls fitted with tropical hardwood. Did you know that the Maozhu (Moso) bamboo, that is used in the Derako MOSO wall system, is the fastest growing plant in the world? Within a few months the bamboo stems reach a height of up to 20 meters. Because of the high growth rate the bamboo plant absorbs a large amount of CO2 during growth. After 4 or 5 years the bamboo stem turns into wood and then gets its final characteristics, and as far as hardness and stability are concerned starts to look very much like hardwood.

 

The growth rate is in stark contrast to that of various hardwoods, which often take more than fifty years before they are ready to be chopped down and therefore are also becoming scarcer and more expensive. Above all the continuous deforestation in the tropical rain forests is having a significantly negative influence on the biodiversity and the worldwide greenhouse effect. Among other things, because of the enormous growth rate of the giant bamboo sort Moazhu, it is a very suitable alternative for CO2 neutral tropical hardwood.


Curved bamboo walls

Both the linear system fitted with solid bamboo slats (finished with SLR profile), and the grill system are suitable for curved or arched applications. These can be applications in which the walls are curved or where they flow smoothly into the ceilings. For these walls the creativity of the architect/designer is all important. If so desired, Derako can provide technical support and advice with regard to the bamboo slats to be used. Just as for a flat wall application, the unique assembly system for walls comes prefabricated. In the solid bamboo grill system, flexible dowels are used allowing the panels to be simply curved to the form of the sub-frame and the panels are secured with wall clips.
