Solid Bamboo – Standards Compliance & Technical Specifications
The physical construction of a Bamboo plank, board or counter top has a direct influence on the technical characteristics of the product. Eco-Logic Bamboo products are manufactured using product leading techniques.
Solid Bamboo Flooring Long Plank
A unique characteristic of laminated solid bamboo flooring is that, due to the exceptional stability of bamboo, you can have a flooring plank that is nearly 2 meters long and up to 154 mm wide. This allows you to have a floor that has fewer joins, reducing the business typical of shorter & narrower flooring boards.
Our Eco-Logic Bamboo long plank offers a unique cross latticed middle layer construction technique using gaps. This provides exceptional structural stability and flexibility to the plank.
Additionally, it has deep grooves machined into the underside of the plank. This facilitates an excellent glue adhesion to the underlying surface.
We suggests Elastilon for all installations of our Tongue & Groove long planks.
Solid Bamboo Flooring Short Plank
The laminated solid bamboo is the first type of bamboo flooring plank to be released into the flooring market. This plank is super economical – priced in the same price range as quality laminated flooring – whilst still being a solid flooring plank.
Our Eco-Logic Bamboo short plank offers staggered laminated construction technique. This provides exceptional structural stability to the plank. Additionally, it has deep grooves machined into the underside of the plank. This facilitates an excellent glue adhesion of the laminated bamboo strips to the underlying surface.
Oriental Bamboo suggests Elastilon for all installations of our Tongue & Groove long planks.
