Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring’s Durability

Unlike oak, hickory, maple, or other hardwoods, bamboo is not inherently wear-resistant. Without treatment, many hardwoods wear quite well. Even a softwood such as cedar is known for its longevity due to its natural oils that help the wood resist weathering.

By contrast, bamboo flooring relies almost entirely on manufacturing methods such as the strand weaving process, binding materials, and tough surface aluminum oxide finishes for its strength and durability. Strand woven bamboo flooring is far more durable than vertical or horizontal bamboo flooring because the cross-hatched strands act in concert to hold the material together.

Testing of many exotic hardwoods with the Janka hardness testing system shows that a majority have around a 4,500 rating. According to major bamboo flooring supplier Cali Bamboo, third-party testing “typically find(s) Janka hardness ratings for most strand woven bamboo floors test closer to 3,000 pounds.”

Strand woven bamboo flooring is roughly three times more durable than conventional horizontal or vertical bamboo flooring, making it an excellent floor covering for high impact areas. If you have young children or large pets, bamboo flooring might be the highly durable material that you need.
