Brand: Cali Bamboo
Features: Thanks to its unique composition, bamboo is naturally designed for strength.

  • Unlike wood, bamboo has no rays or knots, allowing it to withstand more stress throughout the length of each stalk.
  • Bamboo’s sectional anatomy, both as a cane and on a microscopic fiber level, enhances its structural integrity.
  • The high silica content in bamboo fibers means the material cannot be digested by termites.
  • Bamboo contains different chemical extractives than hardwood, which make it better suited for gluing

Trees used for conventional wood take 30-50 years to regenerate to their full mass. In the meantime, there is less oxygen produced, less carbon dioxide consumed, and more soil runoff in the spot where the tree was harvested – all producing harmful environmental effects. When it comes to sustainability, bamboo has traditional lumber beat in every category…

  • Bamboo is clocked as the fastest growing plant on Earth. Some species have been measured to grow over 4 feet in 24 hours.
  • A pole of bamboo can regenerate to its full mass in just six months!
    Bamboo can be continuously re-harvested every 3 years, without causing damage to the plant system and surrounding environment.
  • During the time it takes to regenerate, the bamboo plant’s root system stays intact so erosion is prevented.
  • Continuous harvesting of this woody grass every 3-7 years, actually improves the overall health of the plant.

Category:  Wood Flooring
Construction:  Step 1. Bamboo Strips

Starting with organic 5-7 year old Moso bamboo, the poles are harvested at the peak of their strength. The poles are then split using a blade the resembles an apple cutter. The strips are then run through a machine that removes the outer green skin. The bamboo is then placed on a drying rack that goes into a kiln and is heated over several days until the bamboo reaches an optimal moisture content of 5%. Next, the racks of dried bamboo are dipped into an ultra-low VOC adhesive and are now ready to be pressed.

Step 2. Compression

The coated bamboo strips are loaded into a vertical press in stacks about 3 feet high. The high pressure hydraulic press crushes and compresses the bamboo into a block about 12 inches tall.

Step 3. Milling

The blocks of solid bamboo run through a saw and are cut into boards. Next, the boards are run through a laser guided milling machine where they then become either click-lock or tongue and groove flooring. The planks are then sanded and are ready to be finished.

Step 4. 10-Coat Finish

In a separate clean facility, the new bamboo planks make their way through the Cali Bamboo® 10-Coat Durability Sealing System.
