The growth of strand woven bamboo is very interesting, yet most of the general flooring shoppers are still unaware of this very interesting product.
Strand bamboo, sometimes called woven bamboo, or even strand woven bamboo is basically some bamboo that has been shredded and then compressed with a very tough resin to make a beautiful and extraordinarily tough flooring.
As I have talked about for years, the key is to be sure that strand is a low emission E1 or better from a formaldehyde perspective. That is critical for your family’s health or that of your client.
There are some really great styles that will be hitting the shores of the US in the next 60 days or so – which will make your new flooring that much more special. Some of the benefits will be:
1) Beautiful Design and Styling
2) Earth Friendly Bamboo
3) Excellent construction
4) Extraordinary Toughness
5) Pricing that will make you feel great!
Keep your eyes open for this exciting new introduction.
That bamboo after compression will only be 5/8″ thick! Now that is dense.
Here is a nice photo set from a great installation crew.
This is a strand bamboo flooring job and the brand of bamboo is from Teragren. This is a glue down installation with a 45 degree angle. You can also checkout the Teragren brand website.
As you can see installing on an angle REALLY is a luxury move and makes for an AWESOME upgrade. You should anticipate about 15% waste as a result of installation on the diagonal, but i think it is worth it.
So if you want a strand bamboo that is NOT packed with formaldehyde and you want a beautiful rich floor take a look at Teragren bamboo from iFLOOR.
