The advantage and disadvantages of China bamboo flooring

Postby Guest » Tue Feb 16, 2010 9:35 pm

The advantages of China bamboo flooring are low price, good foot feel, environment protection, excellent stability, great hardness and less color difference.

1. Low price
China bamboo flooring(F) is much cheaper than most types of solid wood flooring which prices are often 3times, 4 times higher.

2. Good foot feel
The foot feel of F is better than laminate flooring. It feels warm in the autumn and feels cool in the summer.

3. Environment protection
Bamboo grows very fast. Many solid wood can’t used for flooring purpose unless the tree is at least 10 years old. But bamboo can be used to make flooring when it is only 5 years old. It is an ideal wood flooring to replace solid wood flooring. China bamboo flooring can reduce the cut of forest a great deal.

4. Excellent stability
F is not easy to be out of shape due to its proper structure.

5. Great Hardness
The natural hardness of F is 1 times more than that of most type of solid wood flooring, so it is well impact resistant and durable. Its life lime can be over 20 years if it is properly used.

6. Less color difference
The color difference of F is much less than that of solid wood flooring.

China bamboo flooring disadvantages are average wearing resistance and much less color choice.

1. Average wearing resistance
F is not strong abrasion resistant. Its surface is easy to be scratched by metal or sharp things. Some manufacturers will lacquer some paint which contains AL2O3 on the surface, but laminate flooring is much more wearing resistive than F.

2. Much less color choice
The colors of F are very limited. It is divided into natural type and carbonized type which is in terms of the carbonization process during the production. The natural type offers the natural bamboo color. The carbonized type offers brown colors. It is divided into vertical type and horizontal type in term of its structure. Though it can be stained with various colors such as red color, China bamboo flooring colors are much less than that of solid wood flooring and laminate flooring.
