Top performance & Durability

Plantation Compressed Bamboo flooring is made from premium Moso solid-stock strand bamboo, harvested at maturity for peak density, creating a harder, durable and more stable product for lasting beauty and performance.  These qualities make compressed bamboo flooring perfect for high-traffic areas in both residential and commercial settings.

A quality control check is completed after every step in the production chain, ensuring a top performing product, which we have specifically made for us – with the New Zealand climate and environment in mind.

Plantation Compressed Bamboo Flooring is pre-finished with a durable 10-step UV-cured low-gloss German “Treffert” polyurethane coating system.  All edges of the click-locking boards have a wax coating applied, which helps seal the joins, making the floor more water resistant, and prevents squeaking.

Made for New Zealand climate conditions

Our Bamboo Flooring is manufactured with 10–12% moisture content to specifically suit New Zealand climate and environmental conditions. During installation, allowance for slight expansion and contraction must be made, as is expected with any natural flooring product (please see our Installation Guide for more details).

Tested by the independent Janka Rating – Bamboo Hardness, Plantation compressed bamboo is twice as hard as Jarrah and Oak, and almost five times as hard as Kauri.


Healthy & Easy to clean

Unlike carpets and some other floor coverings, bamboo flooring is a well known hypoallergenic, so you never have to worry about dust mites, pollen and nasty allergens being trapped in your floors.

Plantation Compressed Bamboo Flooring is amazingly easy to clean. It resists stains naturally, and can be cleaned with a simple soft broom, light vacuum or damp micro-fibre mop. If anything sticky is dropped on the floor, a damp cloth is sufficient, as there is no need for special cleaning chemicals.


“We love our new natural bamboo flooring at home, it feels so nice to walk on, especially barefoot, and is so easy to keep clean.”
Emmanuel & Rachel
"The floor is down and looks a million bucks! We are extremely pleased with the product and end result. I would recommend the product in an instant to anyone looking for a wooden floor option.” ​

Our Compressed Bamboo Flooring uses a click-locking installation system that provides a strong yet simple, floating floor installation method. The boards easily and firmly lock together, making installation simple and efficient.

The pre-finished bamboo flooring comes neatly packaged in boxes (of 6 boards = 1.52sqm per box) and is ready to install, with no unnecessary mess or fumes often associated with on-site sanding and polishing.

Plantation recommends floating our compressed bamboo 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).

Our compressed bamboo flooring (vanilla, natural and coffee colours) come packaged in boxes of six boards, measuring 1.52m2 per box (weighing 23.4kg).  Each board is 1850 x 137 x 14mm in size.

Our compressed bamboo flooring (chocolate colour) comes packaged in boxes of eight boards, measuring 1.85m2 per box (weighing 28kg). Each board is 1850 x 125 x 14mm in size.
