Bamboo is an environmentally friendly, renewable resource that has been used as construction material for thousands of years. Ecologically, harvesting bamboo does not affect the world’s already dwindling timber resources. Technically considered a grass, bamboo can grow to maturity in 4-6 years. The intricate root system remains unharmed upon harvesting, allowing for sustainable future growth.
While hardwoods take decades to achieve maturity, bamboo grows back to its original size within a few months. Once cut, other hardwoods are lifeless, whereas bamboo can grow again and again.
Only mature Chinese Mao bamboo is used for BT Bamboo flooring. The bamboo poles are selected and harvested from bamboo forests, carefully monitored by the Chinese Department of Forestry. This ensures the bamboo forests are able to self-regenerate and maintain a natural ecosystem for future harvesting.

BT Wideboard Bamboo
BT engineered bamboo is manufactured from specially selected bamboo that is harvested from sustainable forests. The bamboo stalks are grown to maturity before harvesting to ensure the strength and quality of the product. Engineered products are constructed from a 4mm top layer of either strand-woven bamboo or vertical laminated bamboo, onto 9.5mm of poplar and 1.5mm of fir. The layers are cross-laminated to increase the stability of the flooring, which is an advantage over any hardwood or solid bamboo flooring.
The boards are extra wide, being 190mm, and appeal to interior designers and architects. They are manufactured to international standards of EO emissions, for high indoor air quality, to look after your health.
