End Grain Bamboo Flooring
End grain bamboo flooring is 3 layers structure, wear layer is end grain bamboo. End grain is cut from vertically pressed bamboo block, 4mm thickness. Bamboo strips are flipped so that the ends are now face-up, showing off a unique grain pattern. After slicing, the ends are completely shown up on the flooring.
Standard bamboo flooring is easily cut on bamboo strips, nothing special. End grain changes the bamboo flooring grains suddenly and completely. Flat grain, edge grain are standard, end grain is unique.
Flat grain: Bamboo strips are laid down and pressed flatly, bamboo strips are wide and piece by piece.
Edge grain: Bamboo strips are laid down and pressed in standing position, bamboo strips are narrow and piece by piece.
Flat grain shows bamboo nodes very clearly, edge grain is less noticeable, and end grain is completely unseen.
End grain bamboo flooring has 2 colors - natural and caramel. End grain bamboo has 3 types - length strip and width strip.
Natural or caramel: Original color of bamboo, same as standard bamboo flooring.
Length strip: We slice the end grain from the length direction and end grain is along the plank.
Width strip: We slice the end grain from the width direction and end grain is cross-direction with the plank.
End grain bamboo size: 610 x 96 x 15mm.
End grain processing is also applied on the bamboo plywood production and we make this special end grain bamboo panel as Bamboo Countertop. End grain can provide higher strength and more durability than standard bamboo. Bamboo countertop does require good resistance on the surface to hold the chef's working.
