Cali Launches GeoWood Oak Flooring Line
Cali Bambo has added new European oak styles to its GeoWood flooring line. GeoWood combines real timber layered over GeoCore, Cali’s stabilizing SPC limestone composite foundation. This technological breakthrough yields rock solid hardwood flooring with AquaDefy water resistance and a rapid click-lock installation system. The seven new floors feature a 1.2mm thick beauty layer of genuine European white oak, which is Euro sawn for 74-13/16 in. long, 7-15/32 in. wide planks. This type of luxury cut along with wire-brushing and reactive staining brings out the wood’s natural visual character, highlighting its knots, rays, and bold oak grain.
The proprietary limestone composite core is 100% waterproof and fortifies each GeoWood plank, enabling it to resist indentation from high heels, pet claws, and furniture. GeoCore’s composition translates to 50% better dimensional stability, resulting in less expansion and contraction, and as little as 24 hours of acclimation required before laying down planks. The new oak styles also benefit from Companion Core technology wherein the GeoCore spine is coordinated to complement the wood color on the surface. AquaDefy technology ensures 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 7-coat water-based urethane scratch resistant finish, GeoWood planks perform in 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 light commercial warranty. A 2mm thick built-in antibacterial IXPE pad lines the bottom of each plank, improving sound insulation.
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.
GeoWood features sustainably farmed bamboo and lumber from Lacey Act Compliant managed forests. Trees are cut selectively based on their individual size, age, and level of maturity, and new trees are then planted to replace them. All flooring is ultra-low VOC with no added urea formaldehyde and employs adhesives that fall well below E0 emissions standards.
