Cali Bamboo Product Gets 5,000+ Janka Rating

San Diego, CA, Sept. 14, 2010--Cali Bamboo said its Fossilized Bamboo Flooring line received a 5,000-plus pound Janka hardness rating.

The company said the rating, which measures dent resistance, is significantly higher than what is normally seen by other traditional wood products.

Generally tests performed by third party laboratories typically find Janka hardness ratings closer to 3,000 pounds, Cali said.

"The tests came up so high that I asked PSI to recalibrate the machines and repeat the test for a second time to ensure this was in fact accurate," said Jeff Goldberg, CEO of Cali Bamboo.

"They were, and we’re extremely proud of the results!"

The Cali product is manufactured with a process of compressing and intertwining the fibers.
