Cali Bamboo offers indestructible bamboo floors and bamboo decking, as well as a new cork wall panel under a new company brand referred to as GreenClaimed — a reference to a material that’s been reimagined, revived, or recovered and then transformed into something new. In this case, the new Designer Cork Tiles are panels made with the bark of cork oak trees.
Cali Bamboo is now offering a new product, BamDeck, which is a composite material made with 100% recycled content — 60% recycled bamboo fibers, 40% recycled plastics. It’s twice as dense and strong as the leading competitor, according to Cali Bamboo, and doesn’t require sealing, painting, or refinishing. BamDeck comes in four colors (natural, coffee, caramel, and slate) and three surface options (smooth, rigid, or alternating). Quotes available through Cali Bamboo.
Let’s say you get a lot of floor traffic or you have a kid that jabs Hot Wheels into the ground. Maybe you have a dog that runs in circles, and you want a strong wood floor. You’ll probably look for a high Janka scale rating — a measure of hardness — to find something that will hold up against denting and wear. You might even consider this strand woven floor from Cali Bamboo that the company says received a 5,000+ pound score in recent tests.
While we’re talking about bamboo, another product worth keeping an eye on is this bamboo dimensional lumber from Cali Bamboo. The San Diego-based company says the product, Lumboo, is the “world’s first engineered bamboo dimensional lumber,” made with 100% compressed bamboo and a low-VOC resin. It can be used for fences and a variety of other applications.
