Use sustainable materials and methodologies

Environmental responsibility is something we all share. For us this means protecting our planets’ natural resources, avoiding pollution and reducing other forms of environmental harm.

Quality and sustainability go hand in hand in our Premium indoor range of furniture

In a world of ‘wheatbix’ board and plastic, we wanted to champion a return to long lasting, high quality, natural furniture. So we use FSC certified and CARB 2 compliant Birch Ply as our main material of choice in our Premium indoor range.

What does FSC mean?

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. Since its foundation in 1994, FSC has grown to become the world’s most respected and widespread forest certification system. So you can feel confident our materials have been harvested from forests which are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, and environmentally conscious.

What does CARB 2 compliant mean?

CARB2 is a certification process instituted by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to reduce formaldehyde emissions and protect the public from airborne toxic contaminants. Formaldehyde is a highly toxic organic compound, but it’s invaluable in woodworking, where it’s commonly used to make adhesive resins.

The CARB2 compliance certifies that as our ply products age, any formaldehyde released over time is so small, that it poses absolutely no risk to health. So breath easy next time your in one of our classrooms!

Our UV lacquer is the icing on the environmentally friendly cake

When using birch plywood surfaces which requires a UV lacquer we ensure to consider the environment. This is a clear non-toxic lacquered UV finish. This finish is done in controlled factory processes and is therefore difficult to replicate with an off the shelf Lacquer. Care should be taken not to scratch or gouge the surface.
