What can you do with Imitation Bamboo / Bamfaux?
Maybe first I should explain that Bamfaux is
hollow all the way through. Most bamboo stalks are not.
The long Imitation Bamboo poles are fairly rigid, yet over their 20' length they have some give and a slight curve, more so with the thinner diameters.
Then there is the value of imitating art: maybe giant stalks, or uprights that seemingly hold up roofs, or puncture roofs for natural skylights, or maybe giant plants invading a hotel lobby, a depiction / re-enactment of your Company's logo, an African theme, an Asian theme of Bamboo homes,... whatever. It's only your imagination that can limit the use of Imitation Bamboo in art.
Imitation Bamboo is an extremely versatile product. It can be used in both commercial & residential settings.
Maybe this idea should be first. Imitation Bamboo can be used to decorate your Home, Hotel, Resort, Zoo, Expo stand, Office theme, Theme for your Park / Resort or Party. As a theme it comes off as Asian, African, Tropical, Hawaiian and/or Polynesian, with some inspiration you could even make it look Primitive. It gives the illusion of an Oasis, Paradise, Caribbean / Hawaiian Island, African village, or ancient Asia and/or China who used Bamboo extensively because it was easily available, seemingly grew everywhere, and even provided food.
A solid / semi-solid Bamfaux fence can demarcate homes, flowerbeds, and walkways while it can also circle trees, be used as wallpaper on either the full wall or half the wall. Fencing does not have to be solid. Imitation Bamboo can be used as uprights between rope, wood, wire, diamond mesh, cattle fence, etc.
As decor Bamfaux is extremely versatile. It fits into almost any scene and it can be colored to match your Persian rugs, your Graffiti wall, your cane furniture, or your kitchen tiles, Your imagination can conjure up your own specific style, trend or preference.
As an expo exhibit, you can use the various fittings to mutate, bend, and shape the Imitation Bamboo to depict a large company logo, decorate your stand in an ancient theme, demarcate pathways for your customers to follow or use it to convey wiring, or water, to your exhibit. Maybe something more substantial can be created like a fountain, or waterfall. The hollow Imitation Bamboo can hide wires and cables for your spot lights, or hide the machinery of moving parts.
Outside a Hotel, Home or Resort, the hollow Imitation Bamboo can direct water, even under pressure if required, away from guest pathways, or use it as a downspout directing water from the roof to a flower bed, or the ground.
Bamfaux can be used inside, with the help of an Interior Decorator, who might place the various Imitation Bamboo poles to replace Towel racks, picture frames, curtain rails, bed frames, even an Imitation Bamboo plant that never needs water or nourishment.
Add to that the value of art, everyday items and knick-knacks, the sprucing up of the interior and/or exterior of a resort or hiding the workings of a mechanical expo / exhibit or showing off a fence.
For your Themes and/or Decor we can also color Bamfaux specifically to your taste. If you'd like special or solid colors, please contact us (look below). We'll gladly take care of you and your need for our Bamfaux.
What is Bamfaux?
Bamfaux is UV-stabilized, tough PVC, tastefully decorated to imitate natural Bamboo cane..
It is ideal for Asian, African and Tropical Exhibits, at Zoos, Water Parks, Amusement Parks, Resorts and Expos, as well as the Entertainment Industry, including offices, residential and/or commercial properties.
Bamfaux (imitation bamboo or synthetic bamboo) is an enhanced, hollow, PVC pipe: available in diameters ranging from 1/2 inch to 16+ inches, and any length up to 20 feet.
After production many cannot tell the difference between Imitation Bamboo and the living bamboo canes. That is another reason why we do all the enhancement by hand. After all, live plants do not follow an exact or mathematical, not even an even, path. Growth rates vary, as do periods of drought and too much moisture. This gives the plant its variations, and our coloring the PVC by hand imitates these spurts of growth. No two pipes of Bamfaux are alike. No two distances between nodes, or striations, or markings are exactly alike. This is as it should be because Imitation Bamboo is our way of copying (or imitating) Nature.
The PVC, used for Imitation Bamboo, is marked to emulate the ridges around the bamboo stalks. Special paints are used to visually duplicate the natural color and streaks on the bamboo plant - the spurts of its growth pattern.
Bamfaux was originally designed to cover steel poles, load-carrying beams and posts, plus give the illusion of Bamboo holding up the roofs of Thatch or Sabal Palm roofs, as commonly used in Bars and Tiki Huts. They fit perfectly into the Tropical Island theme and/or atmosphere, and create an ambiance synonymous with Luau parties, where imitation bamboo, or Bamfaux, is often used to complete the illusionn.
Bamfaux, on its own, is not load bearing. Like authentic bamboo it is pliable and bendable to a degree, therefore it requires an internal structure/member, a strong upright, hiding within the Bamfaux pipe to lend the appearance of holding up a roof.
Our Bamfaux is finished off with a UV-stabilized, acrylic, clear coat finish that is almost immune to outdoor weather conditions. It gives the pipe a matt finish, diffusing the usual glossy paint finish, plus it helps our Imitation Bamboo withstand weather conditions like sunlight, rain and humidity.
Bamfaux can also be used for other applications
-- themes, decorations, art or stand-alone features -- that might further
enhance an interior, or exterior, area for your specific needs. Ask your
'Interior Decorator' for ideas on how almost-pliable Bamfaux might
augment your Entertainment or Reception area to make it more pleasant and
