« Bamboo Flooring - Wide »
Technically a grass, bamboo flooring is very earth-friendly because of how fast it grows. Five years of bamboo growth equals 40 years of hardwood growth, preserving hardwood forests. Bamboo is more dent and moisture resistant than most hardwoods, as well. To make bamboo flooring, bamboo strips are hot glued and pressed into a solid, single “ply”, providing for multiple sand and refinishes. Now bamboo flooring is available as a floating floor, installed with no glue between the bamboo and sub floor. The planks are manufactured wider, typically 6” to 7 ½” wide by 6’ long. The wide plank bamboo can be “floated” over virtually any sub floor, including tile, concrete or wood, or nailed or glued down. This floating installation means that there are no toxic emissions given off by glues used for solid flooring installation over concrete.
Eco-$mart’s floating bamboo contains a very low VOC content, meeting European emission standards, so we can recommend the product for even the chemically sensitive customer. Floating bamboo flooring is available in Natural, Carbonized, Vertical and Horizontal. The flooring carries a lifetime structural warranty and eight year finish warranty on its special UV cured aluminum oxide finish.
