Bamboo, The Panda’s food – not used for flooring

The panda (Ailuropoda melanoleucalit. ”black and white cat-foot”), also known as the giant panda to distinguish it from the unrelated red panda, is a bear native to central-western and south western China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Though it belongs to the order Carnivora, the panda’s diet is 99% bamboo. Pandas in the wild will occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the form of birds, rodents or carrion. In captivity, they may receive honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas along with specially prepared food. Continue reading “Bamboo, The Panda’s food – not used for flooring” »

Superior strength for indoor flooring surfaces

Bamboo flooring has several unique qualities. For one, it has exceptional pliability that allows it to sustain blunt impacts without denting or bending–in this attribute it surpasses most hardwood materials. In addition to its superior elasticity, bamboo flooring is surprisingly hard. It has a wood hardness rating of 1800, which is considerably harder than red oak (1360) and hard maple (1450). Because bamboo grows in tropical regions, it has an organic resistance to water. Although bamboo is naturally light in color, it can be darkened by steam and pressure in a process called carbonization. As a result, bamboo flooring is available in colors ranging from blond to medium-dark brown. Continue reading “Superior strength for indoor flooring surfaces” »
