From The World’s Most Rapidly Renewable Forest Resource
Bamboo has been used in Asia for thousands of years. Not only is it 27% harder than red oak and 13% harder than maple, it is also lighter than most hardwoods. Bamboo is simply outstanding for use as a flooring material.
Preserving the Forest
Using bamboo contributes to slowing down deforestation and attendant negative impacts. Bamboo matures within 4 to 5 years, while trees take decades to reach maturity. Moreover, an acre of bamboo produces more flooring than an acre of hardwood forest. This hardy plant grows back after mature stems have been harvested. Cutting and lamination of fine strips of bamboo allow maximum use of this renewable resource
Totally Natural Beauty
The special structure of bamboo and multi-layer lamination give bamboo its unique appearance. Bamboo flooring is available in two tones, natural and carbonized, both equally rich and warm. The carbonized color results from steam conditioning, which darkens the wood slightly.
Two Lamination Techniques
Bamboo stems are first cut into long, thin strips, boiled in water for two hours, then kiln-dried. Afterwards, the strips are glued together (laminated) in two different ways, horizontally and vertically, leading to the unique appearance of bamboo flooring. Original patterns may even be created by combining the tones of bamboo offered and/or the lamination techniques.
A High-Tech Product
Bamboo flooring is the culmination of total mastery over manufacturing and finishing techniques. Boards are machined with such precision that they fit each other to perfection, resulting in a smooth, even, totally magnificent finish. Bamboo boards may be nailed or glued to the subfloor surface, even over radiant heating systems.
Superior Stability and Durability
Bamboo is characterized by excellent dimensional stability, since the product is sealed on all surfaces. As a result, bamboo reacts very little to changes in ambient humidity. The aluminium oxide urethane finish is extremely abrasion-resistant and comes with a 25-year warranty for residential use.
