Teragren Introduces New Bamboo Flooring Collection Featuring Ten Distinctive Colors & Textures

Exotic Hardwood FlooringTeragren, the nation’s leading manufacturer of fine bamboo flooring, panels and veneer, today introduced the Portfolio Strand Bamboo Floating Floor collection, the newest addition to the company’s line of beautiful, durable, renewable bamboo flooring.

Available in ten designer colors - featuring a variety of distinctive textures and patterns, including hand-scraped options - the wide-plank Portfolio collection demonstrates the unlimited design potential of bamboo flooring. Created with rapidly renewable bamboo, the new collection offers a beautiful and environmentally responsible alternative to precious rainforest hardwoods.

Teragren also launched its new Teragren Color Palette Advisor, an innovative new tool designed to provide consumers with inspiration in how to create inviting, comfortable and eco-friendly spaces from the floor up.

"Our Portfolio collection features versatile new options that are perfect for a variety of interiors - from simple and modern to eclectic and creative," said Teragren executive vice president and global brand director Ann Knight. "We’re thrilled to offer such beautiful new options in bamboo flooring - along with inspiring ideas about how to use colors within the collection to homeowners and designers who are committed to green décor."

Teragren’s Portfolio Strand Bamboo Floating Floor is available in ten new handcrafted colors, including two authentic hand-scraped versions.

The Portfolio collection features the modified Välinge-patented, 2G fold-down locking system for quick and easy installation. Engineered with Teragren’s proprietary Xcora - technology, it features micro-bevel edges and ends, along with a durable 7-coat aluminum oxide/polyurethane finish.

Consumers can breathe easier with Teragren’s new Portfolio flooring line, which qualifies for FloorScore certification through Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). SCS measures more than 78 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from building materials - and guarantees that certified products contribute to a healthier and safer indoor environment.

Created through a proprietary manufacturing process that fuses together bamboo strands with an environmentally safe adhesive, the Portfolio collection is extremely durable and perfect for high traffic installations - averaging 154 percent harder than red oak and 125 percent harder than North American maple.

Teragren’s Portfolio collection is also eligible for two credits through the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, as well. The credits include LEED MR Credit 6 for Rapidly Renewable Materials and LEED IEQ Credit 4.3 for Low-Emitting Materials - Flooring Systems.

The Portfolio Strand Bamboo Floating Floor collection is available for purchase by consumers through Teragren’s distributors’ specialty flooring retailers throughout North America and abroad beginning March 1, 2010. Retailers can be found online at teragren.com/where.php.
