Outline radiator in Bamboo
A wooden & bamboo radiator range! That wouldn’t work. Would it? According to our tests, yes it would. Even in wood unfriendly environments like bathrooms. Eskimo’s Outline BAMBOO is a modular aluminium output radiator with a clean lined front fascia. BAMBOO is an incredibly beautiful veneer. A high performance radiator with a stunning Scandi looking finish.
Low water volume and a diverter fitted as standard, means rapid warm up and perfect for low temperature heating systems such as heat pumps. Outline BAMBOO comes in either an electric model. Or a central heating, water/hydronic model, offering bottom end connections as standard. Or specify hidden valve models with our Hinge & Bracket design.
Outline BAMBOO is available in a wide range of sizes and orientation. From full length columns to long and low under window radiators. Bespoke sizes can be created to suit your pip centres. Two depths, 61mm or 106mm.
Bamboo – more than a wood alternative
Bamboo replenishes itself quickly. It is a grass with wood-like characteristics, growing up to 1 metre per day in tropical regions, making it the fastest growing plant on earth.
Every year the parent bamboo plant develops new stems. These new stems can be harvested after 5 years in a mature plantation without decreasing the size of the forest. Regular harvesting actually improves the growth of the bamboo.
The supplier that we work with opts for an environmentally friendly approach in the processing of bamboo strips for our radiator veneers. If required, 100% formaldehyde free glue is used and meet the requirements set out in the European standard E1 norm.
Over the years, FSC has become an important international standard. Bamboo is not a wood, it is a grass. And to produce bamboo products no deforestation is necessary or even possible: only the 5-6 years old plants are harvested.
However, a lot of building contracts required FSC only materials. So in 2004 FSC has allowed bamboo into their system.
No threat to Pandas
Pandas live in the mountain ranges of central China and forage where the shorter species of bamboo are more accessible. The taller bamboo species has no leaf growth on the first metre of the stem, and is therefore not a food source for the panda.
