There can be little doubt that a deck can be a great addition to any property and offers the opportunity to enjoy outdoor living at its fullest. However, until recently there has been a range of environmental factors which had to be kept in mind when designing any project.
What is Eco-Friendly Decking?
For decking to be accurately described as being ‘eco-friendly’ it must be produced in a way that does not negatively impact the environment.
This means that the decking tiles must be made or constructed from a sustainable source, with the production process using only the minimum of energy.
Thanks to iDecking Revolution, a leading company in terms of innovations in decking systems and materials, new green and eco-friendly solutions have now hit the market!
Introducing a Brand New Decking Material
This has led us to ETHERNO: the new decking material 100% made of bamboo. It is a semi-manufactured product and takes on an entirely different look and performance.
Bamboo grows much faster than any tree and is among the most prolific resources on earth. This makes ETHERNO a CE and FSC environmental certificated product. Thanks to a specialized “deep carbonization” process, our natural ETHERNO exceeds in terms of strength, stability and durability.
This decking material is ultra-luxurious, with this deep brown colour and very tight grain. In direct contrast to many assumptions, this finish does not look anything like the common appearance of products made from bamboo.
ETHERNO decking can be installed both on the EasyClick and EasyChange system.
Which are the highlights of ETHERNO material?
- Eco-Friendly – 100% made of BAMBOO
- FSC Certified Product
- Low maintenance
- Extremely stable and durable
- No splinters, barefoot walking is welcome!
- Weatherproof & Waterproof
- Natural Aging and Patina
- Insect and termite-proof
- Flame retardant (class 1)
How Does The Process Work?
The thermo process works by steaming the wood, ensuring that any moisture in the fibres turns to steam resulting in the timber becoming more resistant to moisture absorption.
This thermo bamboo becomes really hard and scratch-resistant, it is harder than ipe (one of the hardest tropical hardwoods) on the Janka hardness test scale for timber.
