Pier 1 Imports selects high perfomance, sustainable bamboo.
Pier 1 Imports in a mission of promoting quality sustainable facilities has chosen Lamboo materials for refits and new construction of U.S. stores. Lamboo’s laminated veneer bamboo (LVB) will be incorporated into Pier 1 awning and door systems nationwide. With the highly renewable resource of bamboo, Pier 1 is staying environmentally responsible through the use of Lamboo products while ensuring that their stores will not only have long lasting stable systems, but will also stay aesthetically pleasing for their customers.
ImageOne Industries is utilizing the LAMBOO® ELEMENTS™ series in the Pier 1 awnings systems. These exterior grade components and panels feature proprietary manufacturing processes & bonding agents to resist moisture and last throughout harsh environments. These components are on average 20% more stable than hardwoods and up to 40% more stable than softwoods such as pine or douglas fir. Lamboo products attain all low V.O.C. guidelines by LEED (USGBC) and do not produce off-gassing in production or application.
Kolbe Windows & Doors is using material from the LAMBOO® VUE™ series to install long lasting durable door systems for Pier 1. Lamboo, Inc. as the leader in the technologies and manufacturing of performance based engineered bamboo, will be providing these components designed specifically for the window and door systems of Pier 1. Lamboo components have great thermal properties, strength, durability, and contain water resistant attributes that make it ideal for exterior applications.
At this time projects as far west as Alaska to as far east as Florida have already been completed with additional stores planned nationwide.
Lamboo is pleased to work with Pier 1 Imports as well as collaborating with other major retailers and companies that have initiatives to establish strong and environmentally friendly systems.
