  • 1. How is the flooring made?

    flooring2A bamboo poles is cut into strips, shaped into a rectangular section, then either boiled in a Hydrogen peroxide bath to bleach or cooked in an autoclave to caramelize the sugar in the fiber to produce the brown “coffee” colour.
    For the laminated flooring or bench top/ply sheets, the strips are dried and sorted into respective colours, then they are glued and assembled in a tray that is fed into a heat curing press. Multiple layers of the laminations are glued together to achieve the desired thickness.
    For our Moso (strand woven) boards, the individual strips are shattered by running through a crushing machine. Once shattered the strips are tied together in a large bundle and dipped into a huge glue pot, drained the placed into moulds that are fed into large presses to form billets that bare ultimately sawn into boards for processing into flooring planks.
