Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring

harder and more resistant than most wood flooring


Hard and Durable

Strand-woven bamboo provides one of the hardest parquet floors that can be made from rapidly renewable raw materials. With a density of 1030 kg/m3 and a Brinell hardness of 9.5 kg/mm², fiber bamboo is much harder than most wood species used for flooring.

This high density bamboo is also much harder than other bamboo flooring formats, including wide slat and high edge slat bamboo. High density fiber bamboo provides floors with extremely high resistance to normal wear and tear and resists indentation and impact damage.

"High density" strand-woven bamboo floors

Just as attractive and hard as IPE

Ipe (Lapacho) is a hard wood that is harvested from the tropical forests of South America. It is one of the hardest types of wood and exceeds the hardness of almost all other tropical and European hardwoods, which are used for flooring production. Nevertheless, it is a product of tropical forests which are being harvested to dangerously low levels.

It is now possible to obtain the advantageous hardness of Ipe with a rapidly renewable product, and at a much more competitive price. HDG bamboo is much harder than other types of wood used for floors and has a similar appearance to expensive tropical hardwoods. It is made of bamboo, which is obtained from controlled forests in China and processed into flooring with modern European equipment and procedures.

Strand woven bamboo stairway

Bamboo is generally dimensionally stable and this is especially true in the longitudinal direction of bamboo planks. Therefore, bamboo products are very suitable for flooring that should not bend. The very high flexural strength of strand-woven bamboo makes it an ideal option for suspended stair treads. As a substitute for wood, it offers excellent strength along with a tropical wood look that is ideal for high-end objects.

Colours of strand woven bamboo flooring

Bamboo colour tones

Bamboo products are available in two main colors, including natural and steamed (caramel or "coffee"). The caramel/"coffee" color is created by steaming the raw bamboo fibers, which gives the bamboo wood a continuous warm brown hue by caramelizing the natural sugars contained in the bamboo. This color is permanent and extends throughout the bamboo caramel product.

Bamboo is a natural product and the basic color is subject to slight variations depending on growth conditions, manufacturing conditions and bamboo variety. Therefore, there may be slight variations in color shade between different production batches of the flooring.
