We continually look at the factors that distinguish us as a leader in the development of environmental and sustainable materials. As a UK manufacturer we endeavour to minimise our impact on the environment.
Our offices and manufacturing sites operate a third-party approved ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). We have undergone a process of identifying our significant environmental impacts; setting key objectives and developing actions to continually address and improve our environmental performance.
We believe in the responsible sourcing of materials. Therefore, in line with our company policy, all timber used in our products is sourced solely from FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified suppliers with full Chain of Custody. Our factory is also FSC® certified ensuring every product installation can be traced back to responsibly managed forests.
We operate a full waste recycling scheme with our waste contractors who generate energy from our non-recyclable waste generated. We record, report and seek ways to reduce our waste generation and increase our recycling rates.
Recent innovations such as the design and manufacture of a steel stillage for glass door deliveries has enabled the vast reduction of single-use timber pallets. In addition, the carrying capacity of each stillage has been increased allowing us to deliver more products to site per delivery and enabling a reduction in the number of deliveries required. As a result, this has a positive impact on fuel usage, congestion and air quality in addition to reduced green house gas and particulate emissions.
We monitor our office and factory energy usage and have targets to reduce our usage. A review of factory efficiencies led to a process change allowing us to decommission a gas oven and improve the working environment for our factory operatives.
Furthermore, an LED replacement lighting system is being installed in our High Wycombe office alongside other energy efficient improvement measures.

We created new trolleys to maximise the load and ensure fewer journeys. Each trolley, which is 800 mm in width, can hold 5 doors allowing a lorry bed to accommodate 3 trolleys .i.e. 15 doors. This compares to 2 wooden pallets each that take 4 doors .i.e. 8 doors; a 188% efficiency gain. This also gives a lower carbon transport emission, causes less congestion in London and requires less manual handling.
The interior fit out was a monumental undertaking providing bespoke partitions whilst creating a sustainable and environmentally friendly operating process. We designed and manufactured new equipment which allowed for our environmental process.
Fitting office glass partitioning to Dublin’s Twitter headquarters was a great experience. We worked closely with our partner in Dublin, Walls to Workstations on this prestigious project which achieved an outstanding LEED score.
