Toolies Benchtops is proud to have a partnership with Bamboo Australia, an Australian owned Bamboo farm in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Having survived 25 years of business, drought, arctic frosts, floods and other extremes, the farm is still recognized as Australia’s leading source of bamboo information or the supply of poles and manufactured bamboo such as bench tops and flooring.
Sustainable & Panda Friendly
The “Peerless Bamboo” flooring is a superior quality solid bamboo floor developed by Bamboo Australia in conjunction with the Chinese Academy of Forestry and their Associates over the past 20 years as an alternative to a diminishing supply of traditional hardwood timber. Bamboo Australia is the owner of the internationally registered “Peerless Bamboo” trademark.
Each year, bamboo poles aged at least six years are selectively harvested by farmers in managed groves. These groves have been farmed for hundreds of years and will continue to supply poles that shoot annually for centuries to come.
Our bamboo flooring boards are produced from aged bamboo poles belonging to the Phyllostachys pubescens (moso) species in fully managed sustainable forests. This species is not eaten by Pandas.
Our superior quality “Peerless” solid bamboo flooring come in either:
- Laminated strips
Horizontal or Vertical style
- Moso compressed (strandwoven)
The coffee colour is achieved by steaming the bamboo strips that caramelises the sugar in the fibre. The natural (blonde colour) is the result of the strips being boiled in bleach.
How they are made
Once processed, all strips are naturally & kiln dried prior to gluing and pressing.
They are then sawn into the required sizes, trimmed and milled into to our specifications before passing through the finishing line that applies multiple layers of Klumpp hardwearing coating.
