    Product Details

    Luxury fused bamboo decking

    The DassoCTECH® starter decking boards provide an extra level of finish to an installed area of decking – eliminating the need to create edging from wooden battens. This is achieved by the single-sided groove, which connects to the rest of the decking boards via a clip – making the board perfect for a starter or end board.

    DassoCTECH® bamboo decking is the product of a traditional material meeting the latest in science, technology, and innovation. The result of 30 years’ bamboo research by the Dasso Group, the decking was created to address a requirement in the industry for a truly sustainable decking backed by all the credentials you would expect from a world-class product: EU Fire Class Bfl-s1, ICC-ES, and an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), for example.

    To discover the product’s certificates, reports, installation and maintenance guides, take a look at the FAQ section.

    All Dasso® decking boards use an exclusive tongue & groove end-matched system to join the boards seamlessly together.

    While the two-groove bamboo board decking only requires screws for the hidden clips, the single-groove starter boards require screwing along the non-grooved edge to the decking joists. To blend in with the rest of the Dasso® decking, the starter decking boards can be used in combination with the bamboo plug system to render screw holes barely visible – with the colour of the plugs an exact match to the decking.

    Carry out maintenance once or twice a year.

    DassoCTECH® and DassoXTR® are natural products, and the appearance may vary in grains and colours. When exposed to natural sunlight, over time the colour may change depending on the extent of UV light exposure – a process known as ‘silvering’ (which all hardwoods experience).

    To combat silvering, maintenance should be performed in line with the product’s maintenance guide. An exterior water-based oil is essential to maintenance. Additionally, a UV protector can be used, or a stain can be applied to return the product to the original colour.

    Check out the Decking Maintenance downloadable PDF for further information. 

    Bamboo processed and fused with Dasso patented technology.

    The bamboo fibres are crystalised with CeramiX® particles and impregnated with phenolic resin (the same resin found in bowling balls), before being compressed to form ‘Fused Bamboo’. The result is a rich cognac coloured product, with the CeramiX® particles significantly extending the product’s life by offering additional protection against rotting, bacteria, fungus, moulds, and insects – so much so, the product comes with a 25 year Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty.

    For CTECH, the bamboo nutrients have been crystalised with the CeramiX® technology, whereas in the XTR, the nutrients have been removed via a patented heat treatment process to create the Fused Bamboo.

    Starting with the patented fusion process, the nutrients (sugars and starches) are removed from the bamboo. The fibres are then impregnated with phenolic resin (the same resin found in bowling balls) and undergo a process of compression. The result is durable Fused Bamboo® with a hardness rating greater than hardwood (Durability Class 1 [EN 1534]) and resistance to rotting, bacteria, fungus, moulds, and insects.

    Dasso XTR® comes with a 25 year Manufacturer’s warranty.
