Teragren, one of the largest manufacturers of bamboo materials based in North America, recently expanded the popular Portfolio line of floating, strand bamboo flooring with the addition of “Portfolio Naturals.” The four new looks — Java, Chestnut, Wheat, and Brindle — have been favorites in other Teragren product lines and expand a Portfolio line that’s quick to install.
Portfolio Naturals are made with a patented, fold-down locking system that installs over a moisture barrier or vapor retarder, depending on the subfloor, and the underlayment in what could be the “easiest to install solid floor on the planet,” according to Teragren.
Also, Teragren president Mike Boshart said the expansion of the Portfolio line is a reflection of the marketplace for stand bamboo product, as compared to traditional bamboo. “Consumers have gravitated towards a stranded more hardwood-like look,” he said in a statement.
Portfolio Naturals are made in a 5″ plank with an average Janka test reading of 3271. The flooring is finished with a water-based, solvent-free finish and contributes toward LEED credits as a low-emitting material. Teragren has more than 4,000 dealers nationwide, in case you are interested in pricing for your project.
