Woven strand bamboo that looks like traditional oak is a new and effective way for our customers to get that hardwood appearance while choosing a more sustainable material.
Jessup, MD (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Ambient Bamboo Floors, the provider of Ambient-brand sustainable flooring materials, has launched new strand woven bamboo flooring that looks and feels like traditional oak but provides three times the hardness. The new floors are made with a proprietary embossing process that imprints and stains a traditional oak design so that homeowners can have the look of traditional wood with the eco-friendliness and durability of bamboo.
This new oak imprinting is available in Gunstock and Mocha colors, and since it is strand woven bamboo, it can be sanded and refinished just like other types of wood flooring products. Ambient believes that it is the first company to offer this kind of product.
“Strand woven bamboo floors are extremely tough and durable,” said William J. Latta, founder and CEO of Ambient Bamboo Floors. “This means you can have a hardwood floor in a high-traffic area and not feel like you need to tiptoe around or enforce a shoeless policy to protect the beauty of the floor. This new material will keep its oak appearance and stand up to a lot of use by family, friends, or even pets.”
This type of bamboo wood flooring is made by heating up long strips of bamboo, which are then pulled apart into strands and woven together and compressed under extreme pressure and heat. This process creates flooring material that is harder than traditional bamboo flooring, and it provides a real oak appearance in a more ecologically sustainable way.
“Our natural strand woven flooring tested at 3,944 pounds of force on the Janka Hardness Scale,” Latta went on to say. “Our products are measured by an independent laboratory to provide the objective and reliable results we need to deliver the best materials possible. Woven strand bamboo that looks like traditional oak is a new and effective way for our customers to get that hardwood appearance while choosing a more sustainable material.”
