Teragren Manufacturing tour
For Teragren bamboo products, the manufacturing process does not begin at the factory or in the fields. It begins with a business model that places responsibility for product development, manufacturing and sustainable practices squarely on our shoulders. We achieve our goals only by working with extremely qualified and highly committed distribution and retail partners.
Although there are more than 1,200 species of bamboo, Teragren specifies only Optimum 5.5 Moso (Phyllostachys pubescens) known for dense fibers that make beautiful, long-lived products. Our moso bamboo is grown in the Zhejiang and Jianxi provinces of China where the temperate climate nurtures particularly hard, strong bamboo. We insist that the bamboo we use is sustainably harvested at maturity, 5-1/2 to 6 years of age, to further ensure durability, color clarity and stability of our products. FSC-certified bamboo products are now available - just ask!
Teragren have TRADITIONAL or STRAND panels.
Traditional panels are offered in Cross-ply or Solid-stock style and in NATURAL or CARAMELIZED colors. They also can be Vertical Grain or Flat Grain.
The Traditional panel sizes are 4' x 8' with a variation of thickness.
Strand Panels are offered in solid-stock and in CHESTNUT, WHEAT, JAVA and BRINDLE colors.
Strand Panels sizes are 4' x 6' with a variation of thickness.

Strand Bamboo with Xcora™ technology: A patented construction method in which fibers of semi-shredded bamboo are interwined in a pressure-treated adhesive base to form a high-density, homogenous bamboo panel without internal voids. Applies to Strand panels, 1/8" veneer and worktops. This proprietary process results in products 154% harder than red oak.

Care and Maintenance
Teragren recommends vacuuming or sweeping in order to remove dirt and grit prior to cleaning the flooring. Remove any liquid spills promptly. Exposure to the sun and ultra-violet light can accelerate oxidation (color- change). Periodically rearrange rugs and furniture to allow for consistent aging of the flooring. Use area rugs in high traffic areas. Install wood guards on the feet or legs of furniture.
Do not use wax, oil soap or other household cleaners. Teragren recommends using either WoodWise Floor Cleaner by Design Hardwood Products (800.424.7092), or Bona Swedish Formula® MicroPlus Hardwood Floor Cleaner by BonaKemi USA, Inc. (800.574.4674).
Proper care and maintenance can extend the life of your floor for many years; however, at some time a re-coat or total refinishing may be desirable. To re-coat your floor and remain in conformance with the Teragren warranty, follow the manufacturer's instructions at either of the following:
Basic Coatings Tykote Sandless Re-coating System (800.441.1934) or BonaPrep™ Re-coating Adhesion System by BonaKemi USA (800.872.5515).
