As a vertically integrated company Robina directly oversees the production of all of its CARB and Lacey compliant flooring products from the beginning (planting/harvesting) to the end (finished products). It all starts with the planting and harvesting of trees within our 450,000+ acres of timber holdings moving to the HDF/MDF/Plywood core board production facilities. The next steps are finishing the wood and laminate products then onto distribution throughout the world by the sales and marketing division.
Our all-engineered Wood line makes the best use of wood by yielding up to five times more flooring than a solid hardwood product. We select woods based on the natural abundance available and we purchase these only from managed forests. Buying lumber from managed forests allows Robina customers, whether it is Architects, Specifiers, or Fabricators the knowledge and security that they are using products that come from sources managed at the highest of environmental standards. These high standards contribute to the protection of our current and future environment and further the promotion of well managed forests worldwide. To preserve air quality, we use only the lowest E1 emissions adhesives available in our manufacturing process.
Strand Woven Bamboo flooring is made of Bamboo and has a Janka rating exceeding 3000. Bamboo is a member of the grass family which goes a long way toward explaining several of bamboo’s unique characteristics. We are familiar with grass as a rapidly growing invasive plant, as is bamboo. Maturing to a height of 20 meters or more in a mere five to ten years, bamboo is ready to harvest. In addition, like grass, cutting bamboo does not kill the plant. An extensive root system remains intact, allowing for rapid regeneration. Strand Woven Bamboo flooring allows the design, performance, and strength to come through with an ecological benefit to enjoy.
Robina strives to be an environmentally friendly company by using our natural resources responsibly and taking many steps in the manufacturing of our products to protect and preserve the environment we live in. Robina is very committed to producing products that remain safe for residential and commercial building by utilizing sustained materials and advanced technologies that minimally affect the environment we all have to live in.
