Bamboo parquet, a product on the rise

The bamboo flooring is a product that is quickly gaining popularity among architects, interior designers and builders, as an excellent alternative to traditional wood flooring, for its strength, beauty and eco-compatibility.

The structures of the bamboo floor are three: horizontal, vertical, woven strand (bamboo pressed).
Once the plant reaches 4/5 years of life is cut, peeled and cleaned from the bark.

The bamboo is then sectioned into small rods, that will compose the structure of horizontal and vertical versions, depending on which are assembled in one direction or the other with respect to the supporting surface.

To achieve the Woven Strand it is used only the high and noble of the plant, too thin for the manufacture of the horizontal and vertical.
This portion of the plant is pressed and glued; the material is subjected to a drying process for several weeks, in order to ensure stability to the product.

Wanting to give a general description of the different types, we can say that the landscape has a typical bamboo knot characteristic and exotic; the vertical, revealing a smaller portion of the knot, is more sober and looks like a traditional wood.
The grain of the Woven Strand is much akin to the classic wooden parquet we're used to.
What's so special about the bamboo that makes it so essential as raw material? First, its mechanical properties are, in some cases, superior to iron.

Botanically the Bamboo is not a wood but a herb and it belongs to the family of grass, rich in fibers with qualities superior to iron as regards the resistance, while maintaining naturally a much higher flexibility.

The bamboo flooring can thus distinguish itself from the usual wood siding due to its extremely hard surface, to high strength and solidity and swelling and shrinkage of much less than traditional wood, as compared to less hygroscopic.

Moreover, from a purely environmental, it is difficult to find a substitute for wood that can compete with bamboo, since, using little more than three years to mature, it regenerates without need to be replanted and does not require the use of fertilizers and pesticides.

Thanks to the exceptional strength of the material, the innate characteristics of the plant, associated to a treatment with aluminum oxide (ALO3), make so that during the Brinell hardness test bamboo flooring beats the wood commonly used for flooring.
