Traditional Bamboo truss connection:

Traditional Bamboo truss connection Bamboo truss was made by strapping a cord, also known as bamboo lashing. He issue with this type of bamboo truss connectors is that the load of the roof was not equally distributed. There is friction which may compromise the strength of the roof.

Modern Bamboo Truss connection:

Modern Bamboo Truss connection These joiners and connectors can be made in various shapes and sizes. This depends on the number of poles to be connected and the design of the roof. With the modern joiners there is rarely any friction between the poles. The weight is equally distributed. Incorporation of little steel helps in overcoming the problems faced in traditional system.

Woven bamboo matting sheets :

Woven bamboo matting sheets Thin slices of bamboo are cut. These slices are then woven together in a criss-cross pattern to make it a mat. Several of these mats will be made cover a single roof.

Woven bamboo matting sheets :

Woven bamboo matting sheets Corrugated bamboo roofing sheets are made by putting together many woven bamboo mats. These mats are then treated by an adhesive risen. A hydraulic press binds the sheets together and also gives the sheets “S” shape.
