Smith & Fong offers FSC bamboo products

Smith & Fong Co., manufacturer of Plyboo bamboo architectural plywood and flooring, has introduced a new range of FSC-certified PlybooStrand bamboo plywood and flooring.

"Strand bamboo has long been popular among the architecture and design community for its performance and aesthetic qualities," says Dan Smith, Smith & Fong president and founder. "Adding FSC certification ensures managed forestry and the associated LEED MRc7 credit."

Smith said FSC PlybooStrand plywood and flooring are both PlybooPure and free of urea-formaldehyde. FSC PlybooStrand panels are available in 3/16", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. The flooring is available in 3/8" and 9/16" thicknesses. Both applications are offered in Havana, Sahara and Neopolitan finishes.

PlybooStrand flooring planks and panels are manufactured through a process in which bamboo strips are compressed into a super-dense block. The composite material is then manufactured into planks and panels. No urea-formaldehyde is used in the production process, according to the company.
