On these pages, we will talk about machining, the technology being used, and quality control on bamboo flooring.
The raw material with which the Pavibamboo parquet is produced comes from forests located within China, set at an altitude of approximately one thousand metres; people are aware that all woods crow more slowly, and the density of the wood itself increases when they are at altitude, meaning they will be harder than bamboo grown at a lower altitude. We handle it here.
Once the material has arrived at the factory, it is cut lengthways into long and thin strips, which will be treated so that the entire vital part of the plant (sugars, nutrients, etc.) become inert, and therefore become stable in colour and cannot be attacked by fungi; secondly, the strips will be dried and continued for full days so that they can obtain a certain level of dryness; once they are ready, they are bonded and tempered together to form the final axis; this, when still raw, is then planed, cut, dried again, and then it is profiled with the pins which are required before the surface is then finally treated. This entire process takes approximately forty days. The other two types of parquet processed by Pavibamboo (tempered and nature bamboo) have a similar manufacturing process to the main lines, however they vary in several phases, so please refer to the appropriate subsections.
Once the material has exited the production phase, it undergoes a further inspection before it is loaded onto containers and dispatched for Europe; the controls are quite lengthy and include, among other things, a humidity measurement test (fundamental), a check to see whether the boards are profiled correctly, a weight check, a surface finish test, and a general visual inspection.
