As bamboo flooring is widely known for its inherent strength, strand woven bamboo takes it a step further for stronger, higher quality and aesthetically pleasing flooring. Achieved through distinct manufacturing processes, strand woven bamboo floors can transform any space into a high-class stylish retreat with ease of mind durability and long lasting beauty.
Using 4-6 year matured bamboo shoots, strand woven bamboo floors are constructed by first cutting or shredding each shoot into long, slender strips. These strips are than boiled and ground down by special machinery. Once allowed to dry, the strips are heated to a high temperature allowing for malleability as each strip is then woven together, hence its name.
Once tightly woven, the bamboo endures a high-pressure laminating process. In this step, a non-toxic, water-based resin is typically used allowing for further sustainable attributes and low VOC emissions. This laminate process likewise seals the bamboo flooring delivering superior strength furthering its ability to resist moisture.
Many manufactures offer both strand woven and regular bamboo flooring in a variety of styles, shades and sizes. Mohawk is a leading manufacturer for popular strand woven bamboo flooring.
