What is Strand Bamboo
Yanchi strand-woven bamboo comes either in natural tones, deep dark stains or carbonized. Strand-woven bamboos are strong and make for some of the densest and hardest floors- significantly harder than maple and twice as hard as oak. Both our Strand Fusion and Strand Design bamboo are made from strands pressed together under intense pressure giving you all the durability of tropical hardwoods but made instead from sustainable bamboo. It comes in deep browns and dark, almost black, chocolates and makes for a striking dark and zen-like floor. Yanchi Strand Fusion strand woven bamboo flooring is finished with 6 coats of Klumpp brand semi-gloss finish, scratch resistant, UV cured aluminum oxide urethane. An additional coat of finish is applied to the underside of the flooring to improve moisture resistance. At BuildDirect, we mill our own bamboo under a 24-point inspection process we created to meet the most exacting standards. Yanchi is top quality bamboo guaranteed to have exceptional color consistency from board to board. Yanchi's superior lamination process produces the most lasting and durable bamboo flooring structure available. Yanchi Strand Fusion strand woven bamboo flooring meets some of the strictest standards and carries a lifetime structural and 25 year residential / 10 year commercial finish warranty.
