Teragren bamboo flooring is a fine choice for the environmentally conscious. From the company’s inception nearly 20 years ago, Teragren has become one of the nation’s largest fine bamboo flooring manufacturers and has benefited from the consumer trends leaning toward more eco-friendly flooring options. Teragren exclusively uses moso bamboo, averaging 25 percent harder than red oak and 12 percent harder than North American maple. Teragren bamboo products utilize the company’s very own Synergy and Xcora technologies, which improves the bamboo flooring’s resilience and durability significantly. Bamboo has gained popularity in recent years as a prime flooring choice due to its rapid maturity rate and minimal carbon footprint. Whereas traditional hardwoods can take up to 120 years to reach full maturity, bamboo can be harvested within three to five years, with a rapid growth rate of up to 47 inches in 24 hours. Replanting is also unnecessary—as bamboo’s root structure stays intact after harvest—along with the need for fertilizer, pesticide, and irrigation in its natural environment. Teragren has been committed to manufacturing quality products from this highly renewable source material.
Teragren bamboo flooring offers several different options for quality, environmentally friendly surfaces. Presenting a wide array of distinct collections with enchanting appeal and superior quality, the Signature Naturals series is a standard solid moso bamboo available with a vertical or flat grain in either Natural or Caramelized colors. Portolio is one of their most sought-after and popular options, available in 10 different styles and ideal for home or office use, taking advantage of its high resilience. Synergy Strand is also one of their most popular lines. Its strength and durability make Synergy Strand applicable in residential and commercial installations, carrying a lifetime structural warranty for both uses. Teragren bamboo floors also add the option of floating floor technology; these glueless and self-locking installation methods make Teragren a versatile choice in flooring for any space. Additionally, these aesthetically pleasing bamboo floors are LEED credited for an eco-friendly integration to any environment.
