At 8', Cali Bamboo’s new Fossilized Strand bamboo deck boards are longer than regular bamboo deck boards and have passed California Class A fire and weather tests. They have density, strength, and durability characteristics similar to Brazilian ipe decking and are stronger and more durable than cedar, redwood, or pressure-treated hardwood, according to the company. Cali Bamboo decking is also LEED qualified, termite resistant, and priced similar to standard decking options. It has a flat surface and is 4/5" thick. It is manu­factured from five-year-old organically grown moso bamboo that is compressed and intertwined with no urea-formaldehyde added to its glues.
