Elite Office Furniture are committed to sustainability

The PEFC logos we hold can be an assurance that the product you are buying are from a sustainably managed forest. All Elite MFC is purchased from the PEFC approved suppliers.

Furniture has to be constructed. In this process the use of resin glue, lacquers and wood dyes are common. It is important to be aware of the potential environmental risk that these products pose.

Chemicals:

  • Toxic solvent based chemicals are sometimes used in wooden furniture manufacture.
  • This includes formaldehyde - a compound used in resin glue in MFC furniture which can give rise to the VOC emissions during production and initial use.
  • The material Elite purchase is manufactured using the latest technology and compound. It is LOW in formaldehyde content that emits NO VOC’s.
  • We advise you check with furniture manufacturers before you buy, to select items that emit low or no VOCs.
