Strand Bamboo is suitable for both residential and commercial applications, and has a superior performance to many hardwood floors.
Strand Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource, which is not only self-regenerating, but grows very quickly reaching full maturity and hardness in just 5-6 years. Bamboo plantations significantly reduce the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide – the main contributor of climate change – through bamboo high carbon dioxide absorption rate. Strand Bamboo flooring is made from a naturally organic material which will add warmth and beauty to your home. This flooring has low formaldehyde emissions making it one of the safest products on the market. Strand Bamboo is harder than almost all timber species commonly used in flooring with a hardness rating of 14+.
Strand Bamboo is also hypoallergenic, allergy and termite resistant and non- pollutant, helping to promote a healthy atmosphere in your home for you and your family. Strand Bamboo fuses bamboo into an extremely dense and hard material that has about twice the indentation resistance of red oak, resulting in a hard wearing, long lasting solution for your floor. Strand Bamboo flooring is prefinished with more than 10 coats of the highest quality UV cured lacquer from Treffert and Bona. This durable finish guarantees that the flooring is hygienic, hard wearing and easy to maintain. No floor is scratch proof, however the Strand Bamboo coating is one of the most scratch resistant available.
Another advantage of the Strand Bamboo coating is that your floor can be re-sanded for maintenance coats of polyurethane in years to come, further extending the service of your new bamboo floor. We do not recommend bamboo flooring for use in bathrooms and laundries nor do we recommend it for use with under floor heating or in front of radiant heat sources. Strand Bamboo requires no glue to install, making this flooring easy and fast to lay.
The licensed and patented Uniclic system is the very best glueless locking system available to install, with an incredibly strong joint, and a wax protected joint for ease of installation and moisture resistance. Strand Bamboo is designed to be laid as a ‘floating floor’ and can not be glued down. Be sure to ask your retailer about the approved range of quality sound absorbing underlays to lay under your Strand Bamboo.
