BamDeck 3G is a 3/4-inch-thick composite decking made from 60% reclaimed bamboo fibers and 40% recycled HDPE plastics (derived from detergent bottles and milk cartons). Cylindrical chambers running through the material reduce weight by 20% and increase tensile strength by 35% compared with the company’s solid decking. The planks come in 5 1/2- and 8 1/4-inch widths for $2.40 to $3.10 per linear foot. They’re meant for use with hidden fasteners.
