Baby & youth bamboo furniture

More and more manufaturers are realising how great (and profitible) it is to manufacture their furniture ranges out of bamboo board.

In this post I wanted to highlight the great match that exists between baby and childrens furniture & bamboo boards;

Bamboo is hypoallergenic – with so many allergies being experienced by our kids these days, it makes sense to use materials that do not exasperate the situation. Considering that our children sleep 8+ hours a night, it becomes critical that they are not breathing bad stuff (also known as VOC‘s [Volatile Organic Compounds]) all night long.

This leads me to my next point. The standard Eco-Logic Bamboo board range is rated E1 for Formaldehyde emissions. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen – that means; cancer causing substance. E1 is a European standard that specifies a low Formaldehyde emission.

Ensuring we only buy products that use materials that comply to this standard, we ensure a high air quality for the family to breathe.

Eco-Logic bamboo also offer an E0 range of bamboo boards – an extremely high standard for Formaldehyde emissions – where the Formaldehyde emissions are virtually “Non-Detectable”.

If you are a manufacturer, wood craftsman or simply a DIY woodworker, standard size bamboo boards are easy to mill into complex shapes – you can laser cut, water jet cut or simply CNC the boards. Look at those sides on the cribs – you can manufacture them from a single piece of bamboo board, or choose whatever technique suits your situation.

Bamboo boards are stable – no having to laminate narrow planks together to achieve the stability you need. Those end pieces on the furniture are all cut from a single board.

It’s the Eco-Logic Bamboo E0 rated bamboo boards that are the perfect option for childrens furniture. The pictures above are some examples from a Canadian furniture manufacturer; Tulip Juvenile.
