Smith & Fong has been manufacturing bamboo flooring since 1993 and began distributing the first bamboo flooring in the United State under the Plyboo brand. Bamboo strand flooring differs from typical bamboo flooring in that the bamboo is not cut into strips and laminated, but instead thrashed and pressed into dense logs. The logs are sliced and fabricated into flooring or plywood, creating a harder, denser material with an entirely new bamboo aesthetic. A line of flooring made from palm trees which the wood is milled are coconut palms that no longer yield fruit. Manufactured using SoyBond, formaldehyde-free resins and are available FSCĀ® Certified 100%.
