San Diego, Calif. -- Cali Bamboo announced the launch of GeoWood, an engineered hardwood combining real timber layered over GeoCore, Cali’s stabilizing limestone composite foundation. The full GeoWood collection will include real oak, hickory, maple, walnut, and bamboo, available for purchase in Spring 2018.
Perfect for new homebuyers or those looking to redesign on a budget, Cali GeoWood puts real hardwood floors within reach. The beauty layer atop each plank is up to 1.2mm thick and features sustainably-farmed woods and lumber from Lacey Act Compliant managed forests. All flooring is ultra-low-VOC with no added urea formaldehyde and employs adhesives that fall well below E0 emissions standards.
Like the foundation of a building, a floor is only as strong as its core. This proprietary limestone composite fortifies each GeoWood plank and resists indentation from high heels, pet claws, and furniture. Its composition translates to 50% better dimensional stability, meaning less expansion and contraction, and as little as 24 hours of acclimation required before laying down planks.
AquaDefy technology ensures strong moisture protection, making GeoWood perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, and below-grade spaces like basements. Superior water resistance also makes planks more resilient and easier to clean. Shielded by a 10-coat scratch resistant finish, GeoWood planks are ideal for spaces with heavy traffic, large dogs, and all the wear and tear of everyday life. Flooring is backed by a 50-year residential warranty and a 15-year commercial warranty.
Lightweight, easy-to-cut planks with a precise click-lock milling system make GeoWood installations close to effortless. Flooring can be floated or glued down over any type of even subfloor and pairs well with Cali Complete All-in-One Underlayment. Better dimensional stability also means acclimation can be cut down to just 1-2 days so projects start and end faster.
