One of North America’s largest manufacturers of eco-friendly bamboo flooring, panels, veneer, and parquet butcher block, Teragren is a company that is bent on providing excellent customer service and beautiful products at an affordable price.
Teragren Bamboo Flooring is a wonderful alternative to traditional hardwood flooring for your home or office. In addition to getting great flooring, you can have confidence in the fact that you have purchased a product that leaves no adverse affects on the environment. Teragren is a company that is both environmentally and socially responsible when lining up their manufacturing and business practices.
Starting out with just solid-strip, traditional bamboo flooring, Teregren has expanded their lineup to include wide-plank and floating floors, natural, caramelized and stained flooring; flooring stair parts and trim; panels and veneers.
Teragren Bamboo Flooring is a purchase that you can feel good about; each floor is FloorScore-certified, which tests the quality of indoor air. When a product is certified, it means that it meets the high standards for 78 volatile organic compounds.
In addition to being one of the largest manufacturers in the world for eco-friendly bamboo flooring, Teragren is leading the way with research and development for these exotic wood floors. The researchers at Teragren have discovered Optimum 5.5 Moso bamboo.
Moso bamboo is just one of over 1,500 bamboo species grown throughout the world. Moso, grown in the Zhejiang province of China, is one of the hardest bamboo species; this particular plant has dense fibers which make for a stronger timber and more reliable hardwood product.
As far as compressive strength goes, it is stronger than concrete and has about the same strength-to-weight ratio as steel in tension. This bamboo is harvested between 5-1/2 and 6 years in order to achieve optimum strength and durability. Bamboo harvested at this particular stage in the shoot’s life ensures that it is strong from the inside out.
Teragren Bamboo Flooring ranges anywhere from 1921 (for the Teragren Signature Naturals flooring) to 3271 (for the Teragren Synergy and Portfolio strand bamboo flooring with Xcora technology) on the Janka scale. To compare, white oak registers at 1360 and North American maple registers at 1450.
