Yes. As with timber flooring there are different grades of bamboo flooring material. Bamboo flooring is an engineered product that requires specialist machinery and skills. It takes an average of 6 hours of labour per square metre to manufacture. There are over 100 manufacturers of bamboo flooring of some description in China. However, there is only one manufacturer that consistently produces material to our high specifications and has experience producing quality flooring for overseas markets like Germany and the US. As you would understand, there are a lot of steps required to manufacture high quality bamboo flooring. In fact there are many integral steps in this process. Shortcuts can be taken with a number of these steps to produce a cheaper product, such as using cheaper glues, lower grade raw materials, cheaper finishes, and no insect treatments, to name a few. However, to compromise on any aspect of the manufacturing process will result in a sub-standard final product. For some of the most popular styles of bamboo flooring, such as the Bamwood® style, the adoption of the cross-lamination design is essential for superior durability and product integrity. Bamboozle® is the only company that can supply uncompromising quality in bamboo flooring.
