Four new bamboo colors come with a more dimensionally-stable, layered construction, and are green to the core with a sustainable wood foundation. Engineered hardwood is ideal for trickier spaces like bathrooms, kitchens, and basements, without sacrificing any durability or beauty.
CALI has added four new colors to its engineered bamboo flooring collection. Engineered planks feature a stratified design, layering solid bamboo over a sustainable wood core.
The layered construction cuts down on natural expansion and contraction, boosting dimensional stability. This makes engineered bamboo an especially smart choice in challenging climates and high moisture spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. Engineered planks also require approximately 60% less acclimation before installation, allowing for faster projects.
The new floors are made with click-lock milling — ideal for glue-down or floating installations. A protective 13-coat scratch-resistant finish helps shield planks against wear and tear, is easy to clean, and never needs refinishing, saving time and money down the road.
Planks are also ultra-low VOC and FloorScore certified, making them safe for families and pets, with adhesives that fall well below E0 emissions standards. Like all CALI bamboo flooring, the engineered collection is backed by a 50 year residential and a 15 year commercial warranty, even when installed below grade.
Planks measure 72-7/8 inches long, 5 5/16 inches wide, and 9/16 of an inch thick.
