    Your best best is a floating bamboo floor engineered for radiant heating. This type of floor will be more stable for this type of use. Also, you want to check with the manufacturer because some don’t warranty their bamboo floors for use with radiant heating. Also make sure you buy flooring made from mature bamboo and that the person installing it has experience and knowledge of installing a bamboo floor over radiant heating.

    Strand woven is the most stable type of bamboo. I recommend to use that instead of solid. A floating method will be easiest to install.

    Here is a link to some free bamboo installation guides. The advanced covers every detail. http://www.findanyfloor.com/InstallationGuides/InstallingBambooFlooring.xhtml

    Any glue down or floating system will work..If your system is one the fits on top the flooring then You have to pore a self leveler or a lite crete to make it flat ( if not done already) These floors (glue or floating )will vary from 5/16th to 1/2 inch depending on what you chose Nail down is the obvious non choice.
