What Are Artificial Bamboo Poles Made Of?

When choosing the durable, long-lasting option of faux bamboo pole over natural bamboo for your next tropical construction or tiki decoration project, you may be curious about what materials make up faux bamboo poles. Here are some the materials that high quality fake bamboo poles may be made of, along with some information about what makes them a great alternative to natural bamboo.

PVC Bamboo Poles
The average consumer may not know what PVC is, and yet many of us have been exposed to it our whole lives. PVC is polyvinyl chloride, the world's third most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer (after polyethylene and polypropylene). It’s a safe material for construction, plumbing, insulation and more; you can be assured of its safety because roughly 40 million tons of PVC are produced each year. PVC bamboo poles are coated with a finish that gives them an attractive resemblance to natural bamboo; many times, they are indistinguishable to natural bamboo.

Nylon Bamboo Poles
Nylon is a strong, durable engineering plastic that has excellent bearing and wear properties – so much that it is often used to replace metal bearings in certain mechanisms. Our nylon, UV rated bamboo poles are resistant to cracking, molding or rotting, with color coating that shines brightly and appears similar to natural bamboo cane. In addition to nylon faux bamboo poles, we also carry nylon bamboo slats, flat nylon bamboo and nylon bamboo halves.

Plastic Bamboo Poles
Plastic can get a bad reputation, but high quality engineering plastic is actually attractive, long-lasting and able to bear weight without bending or breaking down. Our plastic bamboo poles are excellent for residential or commercial use, and they are featured at some of the most popular destinations in the world – from resorts, to amusement parks, to restaurants and more. Expect them to last at least a decade, and longer if properly protected. As is the case with all our products, we apply an effective fire retardant to our plastic bamboo poles before shipping them to your door.
