Armony Floor Bamboo Flooring: prefinished, floating, also Strand Woven
Leader in Italy and Europe in high quality Bamboo Flooring: factory prices, skipping the resale
Bamboo flooring is an increasingly popular product on the market, thanks to its qualities: economical and ecological, resistant (maximum resistance in strand woven bamboo) and durable, great variety of styles (classic and modern) and colors, ready (pre-finished bamboo parquet ) for laying (floating bamboo parquet). For these reasons, bamboo floors are gaining more and more space and popularity among builders, interior designers and architects.
Bamboo parquet is a valid alternative to traditional wooden flooring, because it has a high resistance and at the same time gives an image of elegance, beauty and is characterized by its eco-compatibility. Bamboo floors are divided into three types, each with its own particular aspect: vertical, horizontal, strand woven (pressed). The horizontal type is the one that most highlights the characteristic exotic bamboo knot, the vertical type instead shows a more sober, less visible and striped knot. The strand woven, the most resistant type of the three, has veins very similar to classic and traditional wooden parquet. When the bamboo plant reaches 4/5 years it is ready to be cut, to be then decorticated and cleaned of the bark; finally it is cut into rods, which will make up the structure of the horizontal and vertical version based on how they will be assembled with respect to the support surface. The strand woven is manufactured with the upper and noble part of the plant, too thin to be used in the construction of the horizontal and vertical. This part will then be pressed and glued, to be finally dried for several weeks in order to have a stable product.
Why is bamboo parquet so sophisticated and so special? First of all it must be considered that the mechanical characteristics are similar or even superior to iron and this makes the bamboo floor one of the most resistant on the market; it should also be noted that in reality bamboo is not a tree, but a plant of the grass family, characteristic for its extremely resistant but also flexible fibers. Bamboo parquet stands out from other woods for its high hardness, resistance and solidity; moreover, the swellings and shrinkages are less than in other traditional woods. As for the environment, there are no other plants that grow and are ready to cut after just 4/5 years; they regenerate without being replanted and do not need fertilizers and pesticides and all this thanks to the rhizomatous root that always generates new shoots. These are the advantages that lead to consider bamboo parquet as the ecological parquet par excellence. For its exceptional resistance and other qualities, in association with the TREFFERT treatment (made in Germany), bamboo in the Brinell hardness test surpasses the other woods used for floors.
