Bamfaux (imitation bamboo or synthetic bamboo) is enhanced, hollow, PVC pipe: available in diameters ranging from 1 inch to 8 inches and any length up to 20 feet long. After production many cannot tell the difference between Imitation Bamboo and 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 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 Nature.
The PVC, used for Imitation Bamboo, is marked to emulate the ridges around the bamboo canes. Special paints are used to visually duplicate the natural color and streaks from 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 poles holding up the roofs of Thatch or Sabal Palms, as commonly used in Bars and Tiki Huts. They fit perfectly into the Tropical Island atmosphere, and create an ambiance synonymous with Luau parties, where imitation bamboo or, Bamfaux, is often used to complete the illusion.
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 pole, lying within the Bamfaux pipe to lend the appearance of holding up a roof.
Our Bamfaux is finished off with a UV-stabilized, acrylic, automotive, clear coat finish that is almost immune to outdoor weather conditions. It gives the pipe a matt finish, killing the usual glossy paint finish, plus it helps our Imitation Bamboo withstand weather conditions like 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 resident 'Interior Decorator' for ideas on how almost-pliable Bamfaux might augment your Entertainment or Reception area to make it more pleasant and aesthetically pleasing. You might be surprised what all our Bamfaux can do.
