Characteristics of Bamboo Flooring

In addition to its superb appearance and its comfort in pleasant contact in all seasons, the parkett kaufen is almost indestructible. More expensive than in other less noble species, bamboo flooring now comes in several fabrications, including solid bamboo and bamboo laminate, which is more affordable.

Whether for gluing, clipping, or floating installation, günstig kaufen is easy to install in any room, even in high-traffic areas or in damp rooms.

Let's discover together the characteristics of different bamboo flooring, prices, and suppliers of bamboo flooring.

Bamboo flooring: its characteristics:

Bamboo is a fast-growing woody grass, making it a naturally renewable material in the short term. Compared to materials commonly used in construction (steel, concrete, local or exotic wood, etc.), bamboo is the one with the least environmental impact.

Eco-friendly, because cultivated without fertilizer, particularly solid, aesthetic and silky to the touch, bamboo is becoming increasingly important in the manufacture of furniture and flooring, including bamboo flooring.

Landhausdielen is almost insensitive to humidity and temperature variations and is well suited to damp rooms as well as heated and/or refreshing floors.

The orientation of bamboo fibers:

Horizontal bamboo flooring: the fertigparkett bamboo stems have been arranged in length on their widest edge, to naturally create the blade by compression of several layers (3 alternating layers in general) superimposed.

It is the oldest arrangement and the simplest, which reveals the knots such as one could see them in nature for an authentic and natural effect.

Bamboo flooring vertical: it consists of a single layer of bamboo stems placed on their slice thinnest, to create the blade by their broad face, revealing thinner ribs and more delicate.

Densified Bamboo Flooring: An alternating sense of bamboo stems before densification by compression provides a smoother appearance without apparent ribs.

The choice is proposed between 2 manufacturing designs:

Solid bamboo flooring: it is composed of 100% bamboo stems (horizontal, vertical or densified). The solid parquet is a floating floor, which can be composed by assembly of blades by tongues and grooves (glued parquet) or ribbed grooves (floor to clip). Whatever the orientation of the stems to create the blade, a solid bamboo flooring is expected to last over a hundred years thanks to the strength of bamboo and fiber compression process.

Bamboo-laminated parquet: This is a thin layer of bamboo wear (at least 2.5 mm thick) glued on support of compressed wood fibers or cross-layers of wood. Less expensive than solid bamboo, the laminate retains its appearance, but not the exceptional resistance.
