Bamboo Floor Forest
Bamboo Floor Forest
1948 RJ Beverwijk
Bamboo Flooring Forrest is a unique and natural floor made from bamboo. Our Bamboo Flooring Forrest is easy to lay, easy to maintain and also very durable.
The Bamboo Flooring Forrest consists of solid bamboo planks. The Bamboo Floor Forrest creates a powerful look through its beautiful, dark color and texture. This really gives you the feeling of the bamboo forest itself. The end result is a floor that is extremely durable. This is because the outer skin layer of the bamboo is preserved. Let this also be exactly the hardest part of the bamboo.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCEClean your new floor immediately after installation with a wood-appropriate floor cleaner. This treatment will give your new floor a good start. Dust, mop or vacuum the floor as needed.
Bamboo Floor Forrest can be maintained with wax. We do not recommend flooding your floor with water.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
