Cali Bamboo’s flooring not only withstands everyday wear and tear, but is also dog-friendly, high heel safe and ultra-low VOCs.

Cali Bamboo, the leading manufacturer of green building materials for residential and commercial projects, has announced that their Fossilized® bamboo flooring scored 5,574 lbs. on the Janka Hardness Scale, making them the hardest wood floors in the world.

The Janka Hardness test is the primary test used to measure wood’s resistance to wear and dentability, determining whether or not a wood species is suitable for use in flooring. The test measures the force required to embed a 11.28mm steel ball into a piece of wood, half the diameter of the ball. The higher the amount of force needed, the higher the Janka score and the more durable the wood.

“With each product we introduce to market, our goal remains the same: to create the most sustainable, high-quality product available” says Cali Bamboo Founder and CEO, Jeff Goldberg. “With the Janka score our Fossilized® bamboo flooring received, I’m confident that we were successful in achieving that goal.”

Cali Bamboo’s proprietary Fossilized® process combines the technique of strand woven bamboo flooring with an unmatched 10 layers of protective coating, culminating in a flooring that not only withstands everyday wear and tear, but is also dog-friendly, high heel safe and ultra-low VOCs.
