By gluing strips of bamboo together, bamboo wood is manufactured in either a broad strip (horizontal) format or in a narrow strip (vertical) format. The resulting bamboo wood can be further processed to produce flooring and panels which can be used for cladding and in furniture coverings and furniture production. Products, which are manufactured from this type of bamboo wood, show typical bamboo characteristics, such as bamboo strips and knots.
The strand woven bamboo processing method results in products for flooring, panels and decking, which are an excellent alternative to traditional hardwood products. Strand woven bamboo feels like wood, is just as versatile but also better priced.
One of the hardest parquet floorings
When selecting wood for parquet flooring, the question is always asked whether the flooring would be sufficiently resistant to dents and scratches. Particularly for rental and commercial properties and homes with children and pets, there is a demand for a floor with good durability and resistance to wear and tear.
The European wood types commonly used in flooring are not particularly wear resistant and therefore there is a tendency to choose tropical hardwoods. That however raises concerns about sustainability and destruction of tropical forests. Now there is an alternative in the form of strand woven bamboo. Flooring made of strand woven bamboo is harder than most wood types and additionally offers the benefits of renewability and cost efficiency.
The Janka hardness test: hardwood vs strand woven bamboo - shows that HDG-Bamboo is one of the toughest ever parquet flooring.
