Noberne Doors recognises that, as a manufacturer of joinery and woodworking products, our business has an impact on the environment in terms of the waste it generates, its use of raw materials and emissions to air and water and is committed to minimising the effect of manufacturing on the environment. Where possible we procure from local sources within the UK and Northern Europe keeping our carbon foot print to a minimum.
Noberne are holders of the Forestry Stewardship Council® Chain of Custody certification. Our certification code is SGSCH-COC-020074. Where FSC® Chain of Custody is required this must be advised to us BEFORE quotation stage. We even source the following material as FSC® as standard:
- Engineered hardwood
Our on-going research and development has also led us to use several innovative materials as follows:
- Engineered softwood - structure timber is sourced from the EU and is based on waste timber laminated together to form a high strength engineered product.
- Flaxboard - is a byproduct from the textiles industry and would otherwise have been burnt.
- Engineered hardwood – waste timber laminated together to form a high strength engineered product.
Our commitment to the environment is demonstrated by the use of solar panels and a re-cycling heat extraction system where waste material is converted and used for fuel to partially heat the factory. 95% of our products can be recycled at end of life.
