Bamboo flooring is suitable for under-floor heating and bathrooms.

Bamboo is a member of the grass family and grows very fast – up to 1m in 24 hours! It grows to maturity in 3 to 5 years, compared to a deciduous tree which can take 50 to 120 years!
After harvesting, bamboo does not need replanting as the rhizome stays intact in the soil. There is no soil erosion. Bamboo forests absorb up to 70% more CO² per year than deciduous forests. The carbon footprint of these products is therefore minimal.

Bamboo Flooring FAQ button

FAQ ABOUT BAMBOO FLOORING

1. How is bamboo flooring manufactured?

Farmers harvested mature bamboo trees in the mountain. Fresh & mature bamboo culms are split and flattened lengthwise into strips of equal dimensions. These are processed & kiln dried before being pressed against each other and glued under high pressure to form boards (raw planks). Strand woven boards are manufactured to achieve greater strength and stability. The bamboo culms are crushed lengthwise and the strands are pressed & glued at extreme high pressure to produce boards (raw planks). The raw planks are then milled to form tongue & groove on all four edges. Planks with T+G are then surface sanded and coated.

2. Is your bamboo flooring as durable as other hardwood flooring?

All our bamboo flooring is manufactured using only 6 years old mature bamboo trees from remote mountains in Jiangsu, Zhejiang,Fujian and Jiangxi of South China. Due to a lengthy annual freeze, this unique growing climate produces the strongest bamboo and most durable floors in the world. Horizontal & Vertical bamboo flooring is harder than the most popular hardwood - Oak. Strand Woven bamboo flooring is harder than the most expensive hardwood - Brazilian Walnut. Bamboo flooring is less expensive than hardwood flooring.
