Would you like to use Bamboo in your construction?
Bamboo can have different uses in construction:
– It can be used as submerged foundation reinforcement in concrete (with cement or lime) as an alternative to steel.
– The complete supporting structure can be constructed, from the columns to the beams/ribbings, including the roof battens.
– Can be combined with any type of wall and insulation: straw, straw/mud, vegetable fibres, mineral wool.
– Can be built on any load-bearing wall (brick, thermo-clay, etc.)
For the dimensioning of our Guadua structures we have a solid calculation base that can be used as a reference in Europe; Colombian Standards of Earthquake Resistant Construction in Guadua NSR-10, title G12.
At the fireproof level, we assume that bamboo is classified as a building material in the German standard DIN 4102 with class B2 (low flammability).
