Smith & Fong Adds New Line of Bamboo Panels


SAN FRANCISCO—Smith & Fong Co., manufacturer of Plyboo bamboo architectural plywood and flooring, 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 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 a 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 100 percent FSC-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 United States with domestic and foreign components.
