Higuera uses the only mountain grown Moso bamboo extracted from controlled forests at 5-6 years of age. These raw materials are kiln-dried to an ideal moisture rate of 5-9%, which ensures years of trouble-free use. This also allows for below grade installation and installation over hydronic radiant heat.
Higuera also sets an industry standard by spray coating and baking seven coats of the most abrasion-resistant aluminum-oxide finish onto the surface of our bamboo products. They only use high-quality European glues, resulting in a low VOC product.
