Strand-woven bamboo flooring is one of our best sellers
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 21, 2009
BuildDirect is the exclusive North American channel for revolutionary direct print bamboo floors made from hyper-green strand-woven bamboo.
"Strand-woven bamboo flooring is one of our best sellers," says Robert Banks, Co-Founder of BuildDirect. "It is comparable to many exotic hardwood species for hardness, and is also a great environmentally-friendly product. It's made from parings of natural bamboo, literally woven together to make a new variety of flooring. So, there's a level of green there added to a product which is already considered green to begin with."
The direct print process runs strand-woven bamboo through large rotating drums that 'paint' the surface of the flooring with a prescribed color and pattern. The result is the look of a real hardwood species, virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
BuildDirect is the only vendor in North America that carries this product, during a time when it is getting more difficult to import exotic species into the US, which makes real species less available, and more expensive.
"We're very excited about the possibilities," says Banks. "We know that this offering breaks the market wide-open to benefit individual buyers, and also for construction firms looking to get the look of exotic floors that also contribute to a LEED certification on their projects."
"The great part about direct print strand-woven bamboo flooring is that consumers get the durability and significant green factor of strand-woven bamboo. And they get the look they want in popular exotic and domestic hardwood species. Consumers don't have to choose anymore."
Direct print strand-woven bamboo floors are available by the pallet load (453 sq.ft.) on BuildDirect bamboo flooring page in four varieties - two types of oak, Brazilian Walnut, and Brazilian Cherry - with a fifth to be added soon.
