Bamboo has superior mechanical and physical properties and excellent safety performance. Compared to wood, structural bamboo is surprisingly strong , with up to three times the structural strength of regular wood. Bamboo is also stronger than steel in regards to the tensile strength. Steel has a tensile strength of 23,000 pounds per square inch. And bamboo surpasses steel with a noticeable lead at 28,000 pounds.
