Bamboo "Swimming Pool" Decking is the next generation in sustainable decking! If you are looking for a natural look and feel around your pool, Plantation Bamboo X-treme decking is a great option to consider.

Plantation Bamboo X-treme decking is an extremely strong, solid, high-density bamboo decking plank made from compressed strand-woven bamboo.  A special, patented “thermo-density” heat treatment manufacturing process ensures that bamboo X-treme decking is suitable for the harsh New Zealand sun and environment.  It has been used for a wide range of large-scale decking projects around the world.

Bamboo X-treme decking is exceptionally hard and stable and has been tested for durability (class 1 of EN350 standard – the best possible class available), ensuring maximum performance. The stability of the product allows for tongue-in-groove end-matching of the decking boards, giving a high quality, snug finish, not possible with less stable products.

The bamboo x-treme decking is made to last - and comes with a 25-year warranty. Bamboo X-treme decking comes with powder-coated stainless steel clips and screws - enabling quick and easy installation with these "invisible" fixings.  Most builders find the decking much quicker to install, due to the fixing system. Also, if the joists are spaced at 462mm there is very little cutting of the decking boards required = less wastage and lower cost.

*Tested on 3 years weathered Bamboo X-treme decking®


The symmetrical shape of the outside surface offers the choice between either a wave or a flat surface (either side can be used). With correct joist set-up, bamboo X-treme decking can be quickly installed using the powder-coated stainless steel clip and screw fixings supplied (no unsightly nails or screws visible). This system saves up to 50% in time and cost of labour to install the decking boards.


"Wow Wow Wow is the first reaction to my deck on a new Build in Marlborough overlooking Cloudy bay. superb material, fabulous finish and I love the clean lines with the Groove and clip system and just a handful of screwheads on the outer edge. highly recommend this product" - Tony, Marlborough

"My husband and friend managed to put the deck down in 3 days. It looks fabulous and I would thoroughly recommend
e-xtreme decking. The communication from start to finish was excellent. We wouldn’t hesitate to do extreme decking again. Love it"
- Elaine, Napier

"Nearly 3 years in the Tauranga sun and not a warp, buckle or twist insight. Still as flat as the day, it was put down! Great decking product!" - Iain, Tauranga

"Love this product, so easy to use, doesn't warp or shift like the plastic composite does, acts like real timber but very hard and durable. It can be oiled to keep the colour or let it silver off. The team have been wonderful to work with the customer service has been amazing. 100% would recommend" - Jess, Auckland
