We are fully aware of the importance of having products which are responsibly made, with proper regard for the environment. Our shutter collections have been sourced with this important consideration in mind.
Our red cedar wood "Vancouver" is supplied by the Western Red Cedar Association in Canada. It is either taken from designated managed forest areas or is replanted cedar. Cedar is one of the worlds most used timbers and as a consequence is farmed in well managed forests.
The "Phoenix" wood collection is grown in sub-tropical areas of the southern U.S.A, China and Japan. It is a fast growing hardwood with a tree reaching its full height in approximately 15 years, making it an ideal wood to be farmed in managed plantations.
The "Seattle" range is amongst our most eco friendly products as no trees are actually cut down to make them. Construction is from laminated veneered lumber core (Basswood strips are commonly used and are off cuts which are not suitable for use elsewhere). These are then laminated together resulting in a light strong core surrounded by LDF and sealed in a polymer outer coating.
