It should hold up fine just make sure the poles are secured well and placed so they can stay up how you would like that. Please let me know if I can assist you with anything else and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions. Thank you!

Hi Jacob, thank you for your interest in Backyard X-Scapes products, I will be glad to assist you with this question. Black Bamboo poles are a natural product and measurements are approximately. We try to be as consistent as we can when dealing with a natural product and shipping it out where it is all similar sizes. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Unknown..What I can say is that there us no chemical odor...This was observed last fall when I slit open the packaging to see the quality if bamboo...Will be installing in a few weeks...
The poles are not finished or seal. Seal the bamboo with a good quality old base sealer to help prolong the life
They would be approximately 25''.
Hi Ang, For hand rails we suggest a single bamboo pole or even a split bamboo pole. The fence has a few wires running through the fence, keeping the bamboo poles together, the wire on each end sticks out and would not be comfortably to be used as a hand rail. If you decide to use the fence horizontally consider capping it off with a split bamboo pole, let us know how it turns out!
These poles are 1 inch at their widest point with a natural tapper. The widest part of the pole will be at the bottom, in an 8 ft pole, the other end can taper to 1/5" or 3/4" wide.
I am a user and not the supplier. My company uses over a thousand black bamboo poles per year. If you are asking if the poles have dried enough to keep them from splitting, the answer is no. Not many but some poles may still split. Bamboo can take up to two years, depending on environment, to completely dry but most splitting occurs within the first month. From the question, it sounds like you know enough about bamboo to know that if it splits it is still extremely strong and the problem for most projects is appearance. Bamboo that has been completely dried is hard to find and very expensive.
