The original bamboo roll screen in our line-up, the Moso Bamboo Screen is a UK Bamboo Supplies classic. Made from 25/35mm diameter light golden-yellow bamboo poles, this is natural garden screening done properly.
Available in 3 sizes
Customers have used this product in their gardens and for privacy screening. The half height (H: 1m) screen is perfect for decorating balconies and also for cladding the front of Tiki bars. A creative application of this screen has also been to fully clad a shed to personalise it (and maybe make the neighbours jealous!).
The bamboo poles are secured together with sturdy 3mm galvanised wires, designed to withstand the elements. The product can be used for interiors and exteriors.

Here are a few recommendations:
Place a gravel board down first to ensure the bamboo is off the ground. Pre-drill the bamboo screen/fence and using standard wood screws fasten them to the existing structure securing. Repeat this process at regular intervals. Pre-drilling is very important to avoid cracking the bamboo.
You will need to attach wooden battens to your wall first, ensuring these are perpendicular to the bamboo. Use the same process as above for installation over an existing fence.

Yes. Following a year of weathering in the garden, use a wood stain / wood oil to bring back the colour.
Bamboo weathers naturally like timber and may develop hairline cracks but does not rot easily.
We recommend the wood stain to be UV resistant and can either be water or solvent-based. Please ensure you follow the instructions of the wood stain/preserver you are using.
Bamboo is a natural product and due to the UK’s wet weather bamboo may develop mould or a slight discolouration.
If you do find discoloration it may be how the bamboo has grown. Discoloration does not affect the integrity of the bamboo pole. If you discover mould, it is usually surface mould and can easily be wiped off. In more extreme cases, we recommend using a mould removed – please follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the mould remover.
To keep the bamboo looking its best, refer to the aftercare “Q: My bamboo has gone grey. Is there a way to restore it?”
To a certain extent, but as this is a natural product (like wood) there is little that can be done.
Bamboo is a plant – as it dries out it changes size and shape (much like the stem of a flower or a tree branch). Although our bamboo is dried carefully for 6 – 8 weeks prior to export, the poles will have residual moisture. Once the poles are installed in your project in the UK, normal temperature fluctuations cause the bamboo to expand and contract. This can occur whether the poles are inside or outside. Hairline cracks or larger splits may occur as a result. As a natural product, there is little that can be done to prevent this.
Half round poles and slats of bamboo are less prone to cracks, as the tension created within the whole pole’s cylindrical shape is released. We recommend the use of half rounds for projects and some bamboo poles have their nodes pierced to achieve a similar affect.
The following techniques are recommended (but do not guarantee against any cracking or splitting occurring over the lifetime of your poles):
Follow the spec sheet aftercare guidance with annual or bi-annual maintenance of applying wood oil or protective varnish.
Our bamboo comes from all over the world, via our trusted supply network.
To reduce the width of the roll screens, measure 5cm past the width you require. Cut the wire at that mark and take off the required number of poles to get back to your true measurement. Bend the wire downwards to lock the poles in.
