Fossilized® Eucalyptus flooring, Quite Simply The World’s Hardest Floors™
Bamboo Design is proud to be the Canadian distributor for all Cali Bamboo flooring. Floors that won’t dent, scratch or wear from every day use.
Every flooring product Cali Bamboo manufactures undergoes Janka testing to ensure it will not just hold up but continue looking newly installed for years to come. Cali Bamboo’s Fossilized® eucalyptus flooring is the hardest flooring in the world scoring an unprecedented 5,547 pounds on the Janka test!
The Janka Hardness Scale
The Janka hardness scale, used to determine whether or not a wood species is suitable for flooring, is the primary test measuring wood’s resistance to wear and dentability. How does the test work? The Janka test measures the force required to embed an 11.28mm steel ball halfway into a piece of wood. The higher the amount of force needed, the higher the Janka score and the more durable the wood.

ASTM Laboratory Test Results Show Cali Bamboo Flooring 100% Ultra-low VOCs
Customer safety has always been our #1 priority. Bamboo Design & Architecture has been the first Canadian bamboo flooring company to provide homeowners with formaldehyde-free bamboo flooring. Our company is built on values and we are one of the very few that maintains transparency by posting all our testing results online.
Several of Cali Bamboo floors register formaldehyde concentration levels as “Not Detectable” with less than 0.000 parts per million (PPM) — this means they are Ultra-low.
Even the floors with detectable levels measured 50 times lower than the strictest California Air Resources Board (CARB) Phase 2 standards (0.05 PPM).
In fact, test results show that all Cali Bamboo flooring formaldehyde levels were at least half the amount found in the typical air we breathe (0.02 PPM).
Unlike other companies who cut costs by utilizing low quality materials, Cali Bamboo takes great care in their sourcing and manufacturing processes. Their proprietary quality control process, which includes the use of superior materials, adhesives and manufacturing techniques, makes it possible for them to offer a product that is beautiful, durable, eco-friendly and safe. This we why Bamboo Design feels confident about using Cali Bamboo products in our own homes where our children grow up.

What is formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde can be a naturally occurring chemical in lower concentrations but is often used for embalming, or as a bonding agent or solvent. Formaldehyde is classified as a volatile organic compound (VOC), meaning it is a chemical that becomes a gas at room temperature. As a result, products made with formaldehyde will release the gas into the air in a process is called off gassing. If higher concentrations of formaldehyde are off-gassed and breathed in, it could cause serious health problems.
How do I protect my family?
Awareness is the best defense. When shopping for new flooring, researching the floor’s formaldehyde emissions and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is vitally important. Flooring is a material that will be in your home for a lifetime, that you and your family will live with everyday. Never install any engineered wood building products in your home without getting the formaldehyde emissions test results first. Only use “interior-grade” pressed wood products (lower-emitting because they contain phenol resins, not urea resins). Use air conditioning and dehumidifiers to maintain moderate temperature and increase ventilation, particularly after bringing new sources of formaldehyde into the home.
Cali Bamboo never cuts corners with the quality of their building materials, adhesives and manufacturing process – and we have the tests results to prove it!
Breathe easy, with Cali Bamboo Flooring.

Bamboo Design and LEED® certification
All bamboo flooring and plywood products offered by Bamboo Design & Architecture are eligible for LEED® projects.
LEED® Canada has changed the way we see our living, working and learning environments. LEED®, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a certification program directed by an independent organization. It is also an international benchmark for designing, building and operating environmentally friendly and highly energy-efficient buildings.
Interest in low-environmental-impact residential and commercial buildings continues to grow. American studies are already showing that in certain markets, LEED®-certified houses are selling for 8% higher and don’t stay on the market as long as similar uncertified homes.

Q. Why should I choose Cali Bamboo® Floors For Your Home?
A. There are several advantages to using Cali Bamboo® Flooring as opposed to traditional hardwood flooring.
Eucalyptus is the most environmentally friendly wood product on Earth because it is the fastest growing plant on record. It takes 30-50 years for an oak tree to grow back after it is cut down for wood flooring. Eucalyptus, on the other hand, can be sustainably harvested for flooring every 5-7 years.
Eucalyptus flooring actually costs less than most hardwoods. Sounds odd, but because Eucalyptus grows back so much faster than other trees, the overall supply is not in the jeopardy of other hardwoods. Also, because so many individuals and businesses have discovered the benefits of Eucalyptus flooring in the last few years, the size of the product’s market has increased exponentially, bringing down manufacturing and distribution costs.
Unlike most Eucalyptus flooring companies, Cali Bamboo manufactures its own flooring and ships from our own distribution centers, meaning the product will arrive quickly and efficiently. If any problem arises, simply contact us and we will fix it. Your warranty is guaranteed by us, as opposed to an unknown foreign company who may or may not honor it.
