A durable commercial bamboo project floor will last for many years.
For restaurants, hotels, shops and offices, the floor is a decisive part of the interior design. The quality of the floor is just as important as its appearance. A bamboo floor, the sustainable, fast-growing alternative to hardwood and other materials, offers several advantages.
MOSO® Bamboo professional flooring offer many advantages:
MOSO® offers a complete range of bamboo floors. The choice of the product depends on the type of installation, the intensity of use, the combination with other (bamboo) materials and the design.
Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam is the greenest hotel in the Netherlands. Various bamboo applications have been installed throughout the building, including the 2.750 m² Bamboo Elite flooring. The floor, in a warm High Density® Caramel optic, has been installed in the entrance, restaurants, meeting rooms, walkways and suites. In combination with the light colour bamboo ceiling and wallcovering and the unique tropical inner garden, an atmosphere is created in which nature prevails.
A wooden floor is popular thanks to its natural appearance and high-quality image. Non-renewable materials, such as PVC or vinyl, are used because they offer a long service life and require minimal maintenance. Whether you choose the ecological durability, appearance or high quality, a MOSO® Bamboo floor is more than a fully-fledged alternative to these materials. Bamboo grows extremely fast and is processed in our factory in such a way that it meets the highest standards. For example, Bamboo Industriale Density®, with a wear layer of almost 10 mm, can withstand thousands of daily visitors to the Citylife Shopping District in Milan, Italy’s largest shopping mall, and the floor achieves the high fire resistance class Bfl-s1, thus eliminating the need for fire-resistant impregnation.
While wood and ceramic tile floors have been used for years, bamboo is still a relatively new material. MOSO® considers it a challenge to develop the best bamboo floors, together with architects and installation partners. A good example of this is Bamboo UltraDensity®: developed in collaboration with AREP as a natural floor for numerous French railway stations. Before the floor could be installed, it had to be certified by the French official construction institute CSTB. The tests showed that Bamboo UltraDensity® achieved a U4P4C2E2 classification: better than any other wood species. The material is extremely stable, hard and durable and therefore suitable for the toughest conditions: in very high traffic areas and even in semi-outdoor (covered but not closed) areas.
MOSO® supplies bamboo floors in the styles Side Pressed, Plain Pressed and High Density, in the colours Natural and Caramel. All these styles are available in the Bamboo Supreme collection, the relatively thin and small 2-layer floor with various finishing possibilities, including an extra strong lacquer for commercial use. An official life cycle analysis (LCA), conducted by TU Delft according to ISO 14040/44, proves that MOSO® solid bamboo products such as Bamboo Supreme are CO2 neutral or better over their full product life cycle. Thanks to these results, MOSO® Bamboo products can achieve extra credits for sustainable building certification such as LEED and BREEAM-NL.
Numerous examples can be found worldwide of bamboo floors in commercial applications, ranging from stylish office furnishings to robust floors in intensively used shopping malls.
