We all have a responsibility to be environmentally conscious when looking after our planet, and there is no exception when it comes to how we run our business here at Skirting King. From recycling materials to chemical-free alternatives, we’re going to give you an insight into what happens behind the curtain at Skirting King and how we contribute to tackling climate change with our eco-friendly skirting board production.
Why sustainable production matters to us
At our company, we believe in doing our part to protect the planet. That’s why we take sustainability seriously, especially when it comes to producing skirting boards and architraves. We know that these may seem like small things, but we firmly believe that every little bit counts.
Our skirting boards and architraves are made using eco-friendly materials and sustainable production methods. For example, we only use FSC Accredited timber in all our products. This means that the wood used comes from forests that are responsibly managed, ensuring that our planet’s precious resources are protected.
Anybody? No? Dust!
When it comes to sustainable production, every little detail matters. One of the aspects of our production that we take very seriously is the management of leftover wood and dust. Anyone who has ever done any woodworking knows that it can produce a lot of dust, and we are no exception. But we don’t just let that dust go to waste.
All our wood dust (and there is a LOT!) gets recycled and re-used for agricultural heating. This not only eliminates the need for other, less eco-friendly sources of heating but also ensures that nothing goes to waste. We believe that sustainable production is about more than just using eco-friendly materials and processes; it’s about being mindful of every aspect of our production and making sure that we are doing everything we can to reduce waste and minimize our impact on the environment.
Next time you see a skirting board from our production, remember that it’s not just a beautiful and functional piece of woodwork, but also a small part of our efforts to make the world a more sustainable place, one skirting board at a time.
At Skirting King, we are committed to being environmentally conscious in every aspect of our production process. This includes our dedication to recycling. We understand the importance of reducing waste and reusing materials to minimize our impact on the planet.
To start, we only use recycled cardboard corners to wrap our parcels. By doing so, we are minimizing the need for new materials and helping to reduce the amount of waste in landfills. Additionally, all of our offcuts, which amount to approximately 3 tons per month, are recycled and used to make new MDF.
Recycling is not only beneficial for the environment but also for our customers. By reusing materials, we can keep our costs down and pass those savings on to you. This means that you can purchase our eco-friendly skirting boards at an affordable price without compromising on quality or style.
We are proud to say that our commitment to recycling aligns with our overall goal of sustainability. By using recycled materials and minimizing waste, we are taking small steps towards a greener future. We understand that every little action counts, and we are determined to do our part in making a positive impact on the planet, one skirting board at a time.
We take our commitment to the environment seriously. That’s why we use renewable energy sources where possible to power our machinery. Our eco-friendly production methods mean that we can manufacture skirting boards and architrave with a clear conscience.
Using renewable energy helps us to reduce our carbon footprint and conserve precious natural resources. We rely on a combination of solar, wind, and hydroelectric power to keep our factory running. Not only does this mean we’re doing our part to protect the planet, but it also ensures that we can continue to provide high-quality skirting boards for our customers for years to come.
We know that every little bit counts when it comes to sustainability, and that’s why we’re always looking for ways to improve our production methods. By using renewable energy sources and other eco-friendly solutions, we’re able to make a positive impact on the environment without sacrificing quality or style.
So, next time you’re considering installing new skirting boards or architrave in your home or office, think about the impact your choices can have on the planet. By choosing eco-friendly options, you can help to reduce your carbon footprint and make a difference, one skirting board at a time.
Water-based solutions: No harmful chemicals
We only use water-based solutions when it comes to painting our skirting boards. Not only is it better for the environment, but it’s also better for the health and safety of our employees and customers.
Traditional solvent-based paints emit harmful chemicals into the air, contributing to poor air quality and potentially causing health problems for those exposed to them. Water-based solutions, on the other hand, contain no harmful chemicals and emit minimal amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making them a much safer choice.
In addition to being better for our health and the environment, water-based solutions also offer excellent performance. They provide a high-quality finish that is durable and long-lasting, ensuring that our skirting boards will look great for years to come.
So the next time you’re in the market for new skirting boards, make sure to choose an eco-friendly option that has been painted using water-based solutions. You’ll be doing your part to protect the environment and promote a healthier living and working space for everyone involved.
