Smith & Fong Plyboo Introduces New Line of Carved & Textured Bamboo Architectural Panels
Plyboo Carved Panels new for UK & Europe 2014
San Francisco, Calif. – Smith & Fong Co., manufacturer of Plyboo® bamboo architectural plywood and flooring, today announced the launch of its new Reveal™ Collection of carved and textured bamboo panels, according to company president Angus Stocks.
Available in eight different modern pattern/color options, Reveal creates a stunning, three-dimensional visual effect, as the panel’s face is carved in designed patterns to reveal its inner core layers. Utilizing Smith & Fong’s proprietary RealCore™ technology ensures the revealed cores are consistent and that layers of bamboo material in bi-directional construction enable stability.
“Reveal is one of the most visually dynamic products we’ve ever introduced,” Stocks said. “It’s ideal for modern retail, hospitality and commercial projects that seek a cutting-edge design with an warm, natural look.”
Reveal panels can contribute toward three different USGBC LEED credits (MR 6 Rapidly Renewable Materials; MR 7 Certified Wood; EQ 4.4 Low-Emitting Materials, Composite Wood). Panels can be specified CARB Phase II-compliant or FSC 100%-certified bamboo/urea formaldehyde-free. Reveal panels are Class C fire-resistant (Class B available custom order), and California Section 01350- and CARB Phase II-compliant.
Sheet sizes are 4’x8′ x 3/4″ thick and available in amber or natural, prefinished or unfinished.
Reveal panels are fabricated in the USA with domestic and foreign components.
Founded in 1989 and headquartered in San Francisco, Smith & Fong Co. was the first U.S. company to manufacture bamboo flooring for sale in North America, offering its initial product under the brand name Plyboo® in 1993. In 1996 the firm began producing bamboo plywood, followed by coconut palm flooring and plywood products in 2000. Today, the company’s product range is distributed and sold throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe and the Middle East.
