Hardwood flooring versus bamboo flooring. The quick answer is: there's no real easy answer to this question: there are different types of bamboo flooring and there's obviously numerous and numerous species of hardwood flooring. But I'm going to give you a couple of reference points, so natural bamboo flooring, which is the blonde, lighter color floor compared to a red oak, it's going to be harder.
Okay, this is going to be 13, 200 hardness scale and a hard. Oh sorry, a high red oak is going to be about 1250 1260 on a Jakarta, so this is going to be a little bit harder now if you had a carbonized bamboo compared to a red oak, this is about 1100 on a Janka hardness. So it's going to be softer than a red oak if we compared to some other species like a hard maple hard maple is about 13 60, so that will be very comparable to this, which is the natural bamboo.
But again, carbonized bamboo will be about 25 percent softer than I say, a Canadian hard maple. Finally, I'll mention strand woven bamboo strand woven bamboo is about 2,600 on a Janka hardness scale. So it's extremely hard. It's twice as hard as an oak or a maple, or twice as hard as a regular natural floor for more information go to the website, but hope that helps. You understand a little bit more about the variations and hardness of bamboo products compared to natural heart.
