Traditional Bamboo Flooring
Bamboo grows in many regions of the world especially in warm climates where the earth is kept moist due to unique weather patterns. Throughout Asia, Bamboo thrives in natural forestlands and in managed forests.
Natural Bamboo is a member of the grass family, which goes a long way toward explaining several of Bamboo’s unique characteristics. Maturing to a height of 20 meters or more in a mere four years, Natural Bamboo is ready to harvest. And, like grass, cutting Traditional Bamboo does not kill the plant. An extensive root system remains intact, allowing for rapid regeneration.
There are many species of Bamboo. Tall and straight, Moso Natural Bamboo is the species of choice for flooring fabrication.
When it comes to the environment, Traditional Bamboo is renewable, are harvested with no harm to their natural habitat, and produce materials that promote a healthy human environment.
After harvesting, Bamboo is cut into strips. These strips go through a sterilization process before being placed in large drying ovens to hasten their curing time. A stringent selection process ensures only premium strips will be used for Traditional Bamboo. Selected strips are stacked in layers and glued with an environmentally safe adhesive prior to being put through a 1250 ton press to form panels from which flooring planks are milled. For convenience and durability Natural Bamboo flooring is pre-finished. Our aluminum oxide finish is unsurpassed in the industry, and with 6 coats applied to the flooring surface offers superior wear resistance.
