Bamboo has gained a solid reputation as an eco-friendly, highly renewable source of material. As a grass, bamboo grows much faster than wood. Moso Bamboo is the primary species used for the manufacturing of bamboo flooring. It can grow up to 47 inches in 24 hours and 78½ feet high in 40 to 50 days. It takes about 3–5 years for bamboo to reach full maturity. Traditional hard woods can take 20–120 years to mature.
- The major benefit of Bamboo for flooring is that it can be harvested without the need to replant, because the root system is left intact when it is harvested. The rhizome root structure has the ability to hold the soil in place preventing erosion. Rhizome root structures are horizontal stems that grow below the surface and help a plant reproduce vegetatively. Plants with rhizomes will colonize or spread laterally.
- Bamboo reaches maturity in five years which is the optimal age to harvest. In a sustainably harvested forest only 20% of the forest is harvested annually allowing for 100% harvest in a five-year period. In its natural environment it will need no irrigation, no pesticides, and no fertilizer. Bamboo has few pests so pesticides are not required.
- Our Bamboo flooring is certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international organisation established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s Forests. The FSC certifies manufacturers and producers who engaged in forest management that ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity, and ecological processes. They maintain a criteria for environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
- Did you know Bamboo can sequester up to 70% more carbon per year than a hardwood forest?
All these factors keep the carbon footprint low and produce probably the greatest timber look flooring on the market. *(Details sourced from wikepedia and the FSC)

The Australian industry standard measure of timber hardness is known as the Janka hardness test and is measured in kilonewtons (kN). The Janka test measures the force required to embed an 11.28 mm steel ball into the test wood to half its diameter.
The janka test is probably the best measure for a wood species ability to withstand denting and wear.
The higher the Janka Rating, the harder the timber is.
|Species||Janka (kN)||Species||Janka (kN)|
|Bamboo (Ecoplus*)||min 16 +++|
|Santos Mahogany||12.0||Copper Cherry||11.6|
|Karri||9.0||Sydney Blue Gum||9.0|
|Rose Gum||7.5||Australian Beech||7.5|
|Bamboo (V)||6.58||Bamboo (H)||5.87|
|White oak||6.0||Tasmanian Oak||5.5|
|Alpine Ash||4.9||Victorian Ash||4.5
Janka Australian Hardness rating is 16+ or higher for Eco Plus. This is a Conservative number as the product has been tested in the USA easily achieving 4000+ rating using the USA Janka ranking.
That may give the product an Australian Janka rating of about 24, 25 or 26 and even higher in the Janka test mentioned above.
We conservatively give a ranking of 16+ as this is well beyond the needs of most domestic flooring and well beyond the ranking of the most common timber flooring.
CARB Compliant Phase 2
Ecoplus bamboo is classified as Ultra low VOC Under the worlds most stringent specifications.
