Our business began with bamboo flooring more than 10 years ago. We are deeply passionate about our quality bamboo flooring and our one of a kind 'A' team of expert installers.
To be in the business this long, we have to admit to being total perfectionists, we handle and take responsibility for the entire process from sourcing our bamboo to installing it which means we can guarantee the quality 100%. Our floors are eco-friendly so you not only have beautiful and stylish bamboo you are also doing your bit for the environment.
So what does this mean? Let's start with Strand Woven.
Strand Woven bamboo floors are made by heating long strands of bamboo and compressing them under extreme pressure. This produces flooring that is twice as hard than traditional bamboo flooring, which is already one of the hardest wood flooring products available. It is made with a non-toxic, water-resistant resin.
Solid vertical bamboo is an excellent option too.
It is created by first flattening the bamboo poles and then cutting them into strips. These strips are then compressed together using high heat and pressure.
Vertical bamboo construction gives the flooring a very fine-grained linear look. In this vertical style, the strips are turned on their sides and laminated together in long, slender rows creating a vertical appearance.
It often appeals to people wanting a typical bamboo look for their floors, something different to the traditional timber look that is typically found in the Strand Woven varieties. In terms of hardness, although not as hard as Strand Woven, it is still a very hard wearing and durable flooring material comparable with hardwoods such as red oak.
How is bamboo coloured, we hear you say? Well, there are two options, namely natural and carbonised.
Natural bamboo with a clear finish is light blonde and neutral enough to fit with almost any décor. The natural colour of bamboo is light yellow. When bamboo is heated, different colours are produced. The more you heat the bamboo, the darker the colour gets.
Carbonised bamboo goes through a specialised heating process, creating a darker colouration in the bamboo due to the colours caramelising through the sugars being heated in the bamboo. This results in a gorgeous warm caramel colour, darker than the natural bamboo.
Attachment Mechanisms, we have two options:
What about that quality finish?
