Solid Bamboo


Known as “Iron Bamboo,” Tam Vong is the strongest species of bamboo available. Tam Vong solid bamboo has a tensile strength greater than steel, making it an ideal selection for exterior as well as interior applications. The density of Tam Vong’s thick walls resists splitting from heat and the elements as commonly associated with other varieties of bamboo.

Benefits of Solid Bamboo Versus Thin Walled Bamboo Poles

  • Solid bamboo poles are robust similar to typical building timbers which allows the poles to accept screws and nails with nominal cracking or splitting, if any at all.
  • Wall thickness of solid bamboo is between 55% and 99% of the diameter of the pole, providing structural durability and versatility.
  • In longer lengths, solid bamboo poles are slightly flexible.
  • Solid, Natural Bamboo can be sanded to then accept stain or paint to meet your project needs.
