Why a Bamboo Shower Seat is the Right Choice

There are many different kinds of bath seats on the market today – teak and phenolic are two popular ones for example. In fact, back in 2015 Invisia made the change from Brazilian Walnut seats to Bamboo. So why did we make the change? There are 3 main reasons:

1. Sustainable

There are over 2000 different types of bamboo, and most typically grow 3-5 feet a year. Some varieties can grow up to 12″/30cm in one day! Teak takes up to 25 years to grow into ONE mature tree, and some varieties take 80-120 years to mature.

 

2. Stable

Each seat panel we use is made from bamboo strands glued together to make a solid, engineered material that does not warp or twist. Many building material tests show that bamboo under tension is comparable to steel. As a result, Invisia seats have a weight capacity of 500lbs/227 kgs (which supports 20-40% more weight than most teak seats on the market).

 

3. Durable

Bamboo is grown in hot, humid and wet climates – similar to a shower environment. Invisia uses 1″/2.54cm bamboo panels so they won’t crack, warp or leach. Bamboo is naturally stain resistant, we apply a rubio monocoat oil to protect the bamboo’s colour and grain to enhance its natural look and feel.

 

 

While other materials we’ve tested can make an adequate seat, bamboo is the only material that checks off style, quality, strength, and feel while being environmentally conscious.
