Bamboo is the world’s most rapidly renewable forest resource. Bamboo flooring has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. Not only is bamboo 27% harder than red oak and 13% harder than maple, bamboo is also lighter than most hardwoods. Bamboo is simply exceptional for use as a flooring material.
Using bamboo flooring contributes to slowing down deforestation. Bamboo matures within 4 to 5 years, while most other trees take decades to reach full maturity. Moreover, an acre of bamboo produces more flooring than an acre of hardwood forest. This hardy plant grows back after mature stems have been harvested. Cutting and lamination of fine strips of bamboo allow maximum use of this renewable resource.
The special structure of bamboo and multi-layer lamination give bamboo flooring its unique appearance. Goodfellow bamboo flooring is available in two tones, natural and carbonized, both equally rich and warm. The carbonized color results from steam conditioning, which darkens the wood slightly.
Bamboo stems are first cut into long, thin strips, boiled in water for two hours, then kiln-dried. Afterwards, the strips are glued together (laminated) in two different ways, horizontally and vertically, leading to the unique appearance of bamboo flooring. Original patterns may even be created by combining the tones of bamboo offered and/or the lamination techniques.
Goodfellow bamboo flooring is the culmination of total mastery over manufacturing and finishing techniques. Boards are machined with such precision that they fit each other to perfection, resulting in a smooth, even, totally magnificent finish. Bamboo boards may be nailed or glued to the subfloor surface, even over radiant heating systems.
Goodfellow bamboo is characterized by excellent dimensional stability, since the product is sealed on all surfaces. As a result, bamboo reacts very little to changes in ambient humidity. The aluminum oxide urethane finish is extremely abrasion-resistant and comes with a 25-year warranty for residential use.
