What makes it Elite

A wax coating is applied to the edges of the boards during manufacture, so that when the locking system is engaged, the tight join helps prevent water penetration in the event of minor spills.

Bamboo Elite can be installed as a “floating” floor (over an underlay) or as a “direct fix” glue-down floor. It comes in a low gloss finish with Treffert, (a German water-based polyurethane) applied – making it look very stylish and easy to keep clean.

Like the compressed bamboo flooring range, Bamboo Elite can also be sanded back in the future (ie. in 10-20 years or so, depending on wear) to be re-finished like new again.

Installation / Care Instructions for “Floating” Bamboo Flooring >

Bamboo Elite flooring uses a click-locking installation system that provides a strong yet simple, floating floor installation method (which can be glued/direct fixed also). The boards easily and firmly lock together on all four edges, making installation simple and efficient.

The pre-finished bamboo flooring comes out of the box ready to install, with no unnecessary mess or fumes often associated with on-site finishing, sanding or polishing.

Plantation recommends floating our Bamboo Elite flooring over a waterproof membrane such as Roberts Harmony 3 in 1 Underlay, which is a 100% barrier to any moisture that may be in the sub-floor.  The underlay also provides a thermal barrier and has strong sound reduction properties.  We sell this in either 9m or 60m rolls (1.02 metres wide).  We can also offer an eco-friendly underlay called “Strongbond” which is made from 95% recycled foam on a gold-foiled backing and comes in 10m rolls. The edges of this underlay need to be taped together to provide a 100% moisture barrier – we can provide the adhesive tape in 30m rolls.

Longer and wider bamboo boards (1960 x 159 x 15mm) – comes packaged in boxes of 8 boards, measuring 2.493sqm per box (weighing 24kgs).  Made from vertical strips of bamboo laminated together across three layers, optimising stability – while providing a natural, durable and stylish floor. Available in coffee and natural colour with a low gloss finish. Stock available now!

These guys were amazing, it was a last minute decision to use their product and they worked hard with us to ensure we got the product and talked through the installation with our builder. It has created a fantastic finish to our newly installed heated pool in our holiday park.
We have just had coffee bamboo laid in our entrance hall, kitchen and living room. It replaced tiles (20 years old) from our entrance hall and kitchen and 20 year old carpet from our living room.Very pleased with the result, the communication and advise from Steve. Would recommend Bamboo Plantation.
It’s not the first time that I approached Plantation Bamboo for projects I designed. This month once again I find an excellent team that is ready to provide high quality products and provide solutions in real time and always quick to respond and help. Specifically I would like to mention Eveliene Grbich, Area Sales Manager, that went above and beyond to provide a wonderful experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We have just completed our deck using Plantation Bamboo and cannot speak high enough about the Extreme decking. It was easy for our contractor to lay and looks amazing. Dealing with Steve and the plantation team has been simple and they have been there to answer any questions. Thanks Steve and we look forward to enjoying our new deck for many years to come.
Thanks to the Plantation Bamboo team for an amazing hassle free experience.Especially Ingrid, our South Island manager who promptly answered our questions, sorted our dimensions and made the whole exercise easy.Highly recommended product that looks fabulous on our 52sq m deck so easy to install. Love it!!
As a non-builder, the prospect of replacing our deck covering was a little daunting. After looking at a range of options, I opted for Bamboo X-treme decking and I doubt that I could have made a better choice. Josh at Plantation Bamboo was great to deal with being both helpful and responsive. The product was easy to work with and I completed the job reasonably quickly with my wife and son taking turns to help out. The completed deck looks and feels as good as I could have imagined.
Awesome product and great customer service. Wears extremely well in Southland conditions and weathers with a nice look. Easy to clean when marked.
One of our clients wanted to use Planation Bamboo as a sustainable choice for her pool deck. We had not used this product before and we were blown away by the quality and ease of installation. Not only that, but Ingrid and her team were easy to communicate with and super helpful. I also appreciated having the install videos and specifications on the website so they were easy to access. Would definitely recommend this product to other clients and use myself!
Awesome product according to the installer. Really well tooled. So happy with the result 😊Also have decking product being installed. Looks amazing.
Enjoying our newly laid bamboo flooring - eco-friendly & easy to install! Makes the space look modern, easy lifestyle and bigger. Our builder's laid flooring in the open plan living area and into the bedrooms, seamlessly. Always received professional and responsive customer service by email or phone. The samples we were sent helped to decide suitability & colour before placing an order.
Our Plantation Bamboo X-treme deck looks amazing, even better than the photos on the website. We have had so many great comments that I am sure we will have friends and family using the same decking. Our builder loved the product so much I think this will become his 'go to' recommendation. Steve and Kim provided such wonderful and friendly service, they even arranged rural delivery for us. I absolutely recommend Plantation Bamboo.
Short and sweet, this is a fantastic product. It's a high quality, durable, eco friendly product which is easy and fun to install. This was such a motivating and exciting project and the overall outcome was absolutely priceless. I would totally recommend this product to whoever is wanting a long lasting, high-quality, easy to install and looking to add a ton of value to your property. Steve and the team have been amazing to deal with and I'm looking forward to completing many more projects in future.
Great product.
With so many flooring choices we are absolutely delighted we choient for Vanilla Bamboo.We laid it throughout the house and have no regrets.Steve helped us through the sales process and any answered all the questions we had.Our builder who laid the floor was impressed with the quality which made laying simple.
Love the bamboo decking from Plantation Bamboo. Used it for the fence as well. Looks stunning. Really appreciated the help from Ingrid and Steve. It's still a work in progress!
Plantation Bamboo turned out to be the perfect flooring product for us. Solid, good looking and easy to install. They are a great company to deal with, excellent communication and very keen to help.
Product is exactly as advertised, goes down easily and looks great once completed. Highly recommend Plantation Bamboo.
We had a great experience with Plantation Bamboo. Steve Roughan was very helpful, from organising the material, getting it delivered and even suggesting installers who we used (West Construction). Due to the design and style of Plantation Bamboo, installation only took a day and it looks great!! Quick and easy through the whole process. Thanks heaps, really impressed.
Loving our new kitchen and living space new bamboo look. We decided to go all bamboo and really happy with the outcome. Great service from the initial conversations to follow ups and advice post install. Looks great and getting lots of positive comments from whanau and friends. Cheers to Steve and team.
Absolutely wonderful company and team! Their bamboo floors are stunning and durable and the customer service team is wonderful. Highly recommend them and their floors!
Having done several large decks in the past I was interested in how Plantation Bamboo products stack up against the, now, very expensive Kwila.In my experience it beats it hands down, effortlessly. Its beautifully straight, a major consideration as any zigzag in a board has to be cut out. It is a set length resulting in less cuts and less waste. It clips down invisibly, no predrilling, countersinking and space and alignment hassles. All this adds up to a beautiful product that is fast, easy and very economical. Do the figures on materials and labour and unless you cannot add you will go to Plantation Bamboo.And the finish is just stunning.The floating floor between our two decks is Plantation Bamboo, Natural colour.Again, a great quality product. Apply the technique prescribed for the product and it is fast and clean with a very high quality finish. Ours was laid over the "entry level" vinyl on concrete floor.Even visitors noticed how much softer and warmer it made the floor. For myself and my wife, no more frozen, aching feet and legs.I've got to add....this is about Plantation Bamboo. I wouldn't suggest the same results are achieved with other brands.A great product and great service. We are currently selling this property and will definitely be giving our next property the same treatment.
Genuinely couldn't recommend the product more to be perfectly honest. It's superfluous!
Great service
Our project had a Wish List which included that the deck had to be hard and durable; little or no nail/screw heads to destroy furniture; be able to take dark oil/stain and most of all look good past the week it was installed. Plantation Xtreme Bamboo decking ticked all those boxes plus some. The result exceeded expectations; it is a dense product with colour all the way through; comes with all the stainless fixings which are not seen and is very easy to install once you put the time into accurate sub structure measurements. Plantation were excellent to deal with, communication regarding delivery timeframe amazing and follow up exceptional. These people stand by their product and we would definitely use Plantation Bamboo again.
I've just laid 13 packs of bamboo flooring, coffee coloured.I must say the flooring looks terrific, easy to lay, fits together tightly and securely and the boards are great to work with, and lovely to walk on too.I'll use them again for sure.
Josh from Plantation Bamboo was very helpful with knowledge of the product. Once ordered, the delivery was within days.The instructions were very clear and josh was there if needed. I constructed the timber work and ground work as per plan and everything went smoothly.The decking planks were cut to shape and length using a chop saw and everything looks great.As pictures below.
Steve Roughan has provided some really beautiful material in the bamboo panels. They have an excellent appearance and are easy to work with using standard power tools. I can cut accurately and without tear away provided I use a suitable saw blade. These are not the cheapest panels, but are far and away the best quality material I have worked with. Also the on line interaction and communication has been exceptional.
"A very nice product. Easy to lay and looks great. We particularly like the decking with no screws showing and nice clean line finish. The interior flooring is lovely to walk on after having had a concrete floor. Much warmer and no aching feet and legs.A happy customer. Thank you"
“Lads VERY happy with the product, ‘will never do a deck any other way now’! That’s coming from both a builder and a boat builder! Cannot believe there is NO waste either. Exceptional product!”
