|Features:||Thanks to its unique composition, bamboo is naturally designed for strength.
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…

|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.
