Bamboo UltraDensity heavy duty flooring
- story by Moso International
With Bamboo UltraDensity, MOSO has developed a truly ecological and durable solution for heavy duty natural flooring for indoor or semi-outdoor applications (protected from direct rain or sunshine). For Bamboo UltraDensity, the bamboo stems are split into strips, then crushed and finally compressed into boards. This results in boards with an Ultra-High Density, which makes the bamboo extremely durable and suitable for almost any high traffic area. Bamboo UltraDensity is the only alternative to stone, ceramic, pvc or other industrial floors!
MOSO Bamboo UltraDensity is a solid bamboo flooring board made from compressed bamboo fibres. With a unique production method, the material is extremely stable, hard and durable and therefore suitable for the toughest conditions: in very high traffic areas and even in semi-outdoor (covered but not closed) areas. The boards are available unfinished, with rough sanded faces, and have to be finished on site. MOSO Bamboo UltraDensity flooring can meet the highest requirements, making it a unique product for the use of biobased materials in modern architecture.
Locations like train stations, airports, malls, or museums require special flooring with exceptional qualities, tested and certified to the highest standards. These very high performance standards are virtually impossible to achieve with wood flooring. The newly developed MOSO Bamboo UltraDensity flooring has reached the highest standards, proved by testing and certification in France. FCBA, the official French wood-institute, defined that all norms for solid and densified wood are valid for MOSO bamboo. After extensive testing, Bamboo UltraDensity reached the highest wear class, stability and mechanical property class. Combined with the testing for water and chemical resistance, the product has been certified by CSTB (French official construction institute) according to the UPEC classification with the score of U4P4C2E2. This proves that the Bamboo UltraDensity flooring is better than any other wood flooring.
With the opening of Bordeaux Saint Jean train station end of 2016, the first certified bamboo heavy duty flooring will be exposed to more than 18 million passengers per year. In 2017, MOSO Bamboo UltraDensity will also be installed in Gare du Nord train station in Paris with more than 180 million passengers per year!
