A dark, warm and beautiful brown colour, with an "antique" hand-scraped finish.
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 boards are click-locking – for ease of installation, and 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 around the perimeter of the floor, as is expected with any natural flooring product (please see our Installation Guide for more details). The flooring can be installed as either “floating” (over an underlay) or glued-down.
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.
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). We also have a new, eco-friendly underlay option called “Strongbond”, which is made from 95% re-cycled foam with a gold-foil backing – comes in 10m rolls. The edges of this underlay need to be taped together to provide a 100% moisture barrier – we can supply the adhesive tape in 30m rolls.
