Bamboo Safety

To the best of our knowledge, all of the bamboo in our warehouse is CARB 2 Compliant.

A recent trend in flooring as a greener alternative to hardwood, bamboo has long been renowned throughout Asia for its abundance and tensile strength. Bamboo flooring can come in one of three composition styles: vertical, horizontal, and strand woven. The differences between vertical and horizontal bamboo versus strand woven bamboo can be thought of like the differences between engineered hardwood and laminate flooring. Vertical and horizontal bamboo flooring planks are composed of multiple pieces of the material, while a plank of strand woven bamboo is made from a single board.

Of course, bamboo is a grass, so the term ‘single board’ is slightly misleading. Unlike solid hardwood, which comes from a single piece of wood, strand woven bamboo boards must be made by stripping and weaving bamboo strands together and then fusing them together into one board. This process uses adhesives, much like the adhesives used in laminate flooring.

What To Look For: CARB compliance labels and third-party testing.
