If using faux bamboo to cover a metal pole, cut it to the required length and slide it over the pole. If the sleeve rattles, make a small hole in the node and inject expanding foam into the cavity. Use a faux bamboo cap to seal the top.

If installing a faux bamboo pole on a beam, cut the pole lengthwise and heat it in the sun or use hot water. Open the faux bamboo and stretch it around the beam.

Can I use faux bamboo poles outdoors?

All faux bamboo is treated with a protective sealant for outdoor use. We use a clear automotive coat to protect the poles.

When should I use faux bamboo as opposed to natural bamboo poles?

Faux bamboo is ideal for low-traffic areas where there is no need to touch, rub, or scrape against the faux bamboo or when the bamboo must be exactly straight.
