Bamboo Washrooms: Why Bamboo is the Super Material of the Future

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

Here at Maxwood, we believe that well-designed washrooms are important in commercial buildings, and the materials used to furnish them are just as important. One of the most exciting and forward-thinking materials on the market is bamboo, and Maxwood Washrooms have just released the Industry's first solid bamboo cubicle range. This blog post will explore why bamboo is the super material of the future and how it can be used to create functional, sustainable washrooms.

Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on earth

Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials on the planet because of its incredibly fast growth rate. Some species can grow as fast as 2.91 feet per day, or 1.5 inches per hour, according to the Guinness World Records. This rapid bamboo growth rate makes it a perfect choice for creating sustainable materials. Depending on the variety, it can take anywhere from 1 to 5 years to grow to full maturity, which is far quicker than any other growing tree. Not only that, but harvested bamboo doesn't need to be replanted as it regrows from its own root system. This means that the soil and roots aren’t disturbed and it helps maintain soil health. Thanks to its renewable nature, bamboo is becoming one of the most eco-friendly materials available for production.

Our Mivera cubicle is available in an exciting range of Bamboo finishes

Bamboo is stronger than steel

Bamboo has a higher tensile strength than steel – 28,000 PSI vs 23,000 PSI so it's no wonder bamboo is often referred to as the new 'green steel'. It's a renewable, eco-friendly material that offers superior strength and durability. This makes it an ideal material for construction projects, both big and small. Our new bamboo cubicle range Mivera, takes full advantage of this natural material's superior strength, flexibility, and lifespan, making it the perfect choice for bathrooms of all shapes and sizes. Not only will your washroom look good, but you can also be sure that your bamboo cubicles are designed to last.

Bamboo is a sustainable solution

As a renewable, super-material, Bamboo is the natural choice for specifying eco-friendly solutions. Requiring no pesticides and minimal water to thrive, bamboo absorbs 2x more carbon dioxide than trees, which is why they are known to act as carbon sinks. It also generates a vast amount of oxygen, totalling up to 30% more than most plants and trees. Bamboo is lightweight meaning its transportation has a smaller carbon footprint than heavier materials. It’s lightweight and renewable properties make it an excellent choice for those looking to reduce their environmental impact. It's easy to see why bamboo is quickly becoming the go-to material for those looking for sustainable solutions.
