Forest Stewardship Council Certified Products
Crating materialsThe Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international non-profit organization that promotes responsible management of the world's forests. The FSC does this by setting standards on forest products, along with certifying and labeling them as eco-friendly.
GREENGUARD – Gold
Adhesives, additional products comply
GREENGUARD Certification is part of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Environment. GREENGUARD Certification helps manufacturers create, as well as helps buyers identify interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used.
CARB Phase 2 Compliant
Most materials comply
CARB Phase 1 and Phase 2 are a part of California’s Composite Wood Products Regulation (CWP Regulation), which took effect in 2009 with Phase 1. The regulation has to do with reducing formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products, hardwood plywood, particleboard, and medium-density fiberboard. In the 2009 rollout of CARB’s Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM), formaldehyde emissions were capped at .08 parts per million (ppm). CARB Phase 2 went into effect in 2010 and has much lower formaldehyde emissions than the previous phase; set at .05 ppm.
The main reason why CARB ATCM is the strictest air quality measure is that it caps emissions levels. Other air quality standards are averages.
Eco–Certified ProductsCrating materials, panel core materials, etc.
This certification implements strict quality assurance on incoming materialsand chemical application-related processes to remove all the restricted harmfulsubstances from the very beginning without deviating from the original design,thus, avoiding any contamination during the manufacturing process.
• Our crating is potentially reusable due to its design.
• The creative construction design allows the use of fewer materials while stillmaintaining the highest strength standards.
• All scrap metal, cardboard, and some wood is recycled.If you have any questions regarding the sustainability of SnapCab products, please contact us.
