The nine new wide plank engineered flooring styles come in click-lock milling and offer more dimensionally-stable, stratified versions of Cali’s most popular solid bamboo flooring styles. Planks are also green to the core with a sustainable eucalyptus plywood foundation.
In response to growing customer demand, green building industry leader, Cali Bamboo, has added nine new floors to its Eco-Engineered bamboo flooring collection. Wide plank engineered flooring planks are frequently a strategic choice, with a layered construction that makes them more dimensionally stable, and therefore better suited for high moisture environments like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
The new floors are the omnichannel company’s first wide plank engineered flooring styles with click-lock milling, ideal for glue-down or floating installations. Planks measure 72⅞ inches long, 5 5/16 inches wide, and 9/16 of an inch thick. The entire engineered collection is now available from Cali Bamboo, various flooring dealers across the country, Lowe’s Home Improvement stores, and Lowes.com.
Like Cali’s existing Eco-Engineered line-up, the nine new styles feature an extra thick wear layer of Fossilized bamboo over a sustainable core of cross-constructed eucalyptus. Bamboo is the planet’s fastest growing plant, and eucalyptus is the fastest growing tree — both of which yield a high-quality, renewable building material without causing any damage to the plant or surrounding environment during harvesting.
Planks are protected by a 13 Coat Durability Sealing System, helping to reduce damage from pet claws, high heels, and other forms of wear and tear. That scratch-resistant finish keeps the bamboo’s rich color, expertly distressed surface, and subtle hand-scraping looking its best. Both the finish and the flooring itself are backed by a 50-year residential warranty and a 15-year commercial warranty.
As with all Cali products, the new floors utilize only top quality raw materials and adhesives, ensuring planks are non-toxic and completely safe for the home with low VOCs and no added urea formaldehyde.
