What is the difference between Strandwoven (BT Strand), Classic (BT Bamboo) and Engineered bamboo flooring?

Manufacturing Process

  • BT STRAND is constructed from strips of bamboo that have been coated in glue and compressed under intense pressure and heat.
  • BT BAMBOO is constructed from strips of bamboo laminated together in either a vertical or horizontal manner.
  • ENGINEERED products are constructed from 4mm layer of either strand or vertical laminated onto 9.5mm poplar+1.5mm fir.
