Made from whole strips of select A-grade Moso bamboo, from plants at the perfect level of maturity.
Not to be confused with solid strand woven bamboo, which is 3 times harder than oak, "Classic" solid bamboo flooring is comprised of long rectangular strips of bamboo that have been laminated together for a more contemporary look. Bamboo solid wood flooring is only about 1/3rd the hardness of strand bamboo. It was the first type of bamboo flooring to hit the market and has been around since the 1990's. It's a relatively light-hued flooring that showcases the telltale nodes of the bamboo plant, and comes in both horizontal and vertical styles. Classic solid bamboo floors can come in the standard natural and carbonized colors, but they're sold by many retailers in different stains as well.
The Construction of Bamboo Solid Hardwood Flooring
Ambient's classic bamboo solid wood flooring is made from whole strips of select A-grade bamboo of the Moso species, from plants that are between five and seven years old. This age is important because, although bamboo grows very rapidly, it is known that it takes at least five years for the plant to mature and harden to the point that it is suitable for use as a high-quality strand bamboo flooring material. At Ambient, we also use strips that are cut from the middle of the culm — the most resilient part of the stalk.
The Benefits of Solid Bamboo Flooring
Like all types of bamboo, this bamboo solid hardwood floor is very eco-friendly, and it shows more character over time than stranded bamboo. It can be glued down to concrete or nailed down to plywood sub-floors. It's great in residential applications and comes with our proprietary Accuseal Ultra® Finish System, which means you'll have an affordable, durable and eco-friendly floor for years to come. Best of all, it's beautiful and highly sought after by modern designers, because of it's unique vertical and horizontal grain aesthetics.
With vertical bamboo flooring, you get a cleaner, uniform design where nodes are subtle. With horizontal bamboo flooring, the nodes are more obvious, yielding a rustic and natural look. The choice is yours!
