Bamboo, unlike other raw materials used to make floors, is a grass. To manufacture this “green” flooring, Teragren Bamboo cuts the bamboo grass stalks into small slats, which are then laminated together using an adhesive combined with hydraulic pressure. Caramelized bamboo is an alternative to natural bamboo — offering a coffee-colored appearance without the use of dye or stain. The caramelized bamboo color is produced naturally by pressure heating the bamboo slats.
Teragren Bamboo is one of the most environmentally sound producers of “green” flooring, undergoing strict control checks and following stringent German standards during production. Bamboo is naturally one of the most environmentally friendly choices, as it is a grass that can be harvested from the same plant over and over. As with most bamboo floors, Teragren Flooring is offered in a flat (horizontal) grain and a vertical grain.
