material differences

As a business we are committed to making eco-friendly choices, including a priority focus on local materials and processes that reduce our environmental impact.

+ mindful manufacturing

By prioritising local manufacturing we reduce our energy consumption, delivery times and the need for carbon-intensive transportation. ​ 

+ sustainable sources

We also ensure our materials are sustainably sourced - our Spotted Gum and Blackbutt hardwoods are locally sourced and certified via the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), while Merbau is primarily sourced from responsibly managed regrowth forests and certified via the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Duraslat™ XG, our sustainable alternative to hardwood, is comprised of 90% recycled hardwood fibres and 10% reclaimed plastic materials, reducing the overall demand for virgin materials.

+ local materials

The galvanised and stainless steel components in our commercial outdoor furniture are also made from locally sourced steel.

Sustainable material choices are embedded in our ethos as commercial furniture manufacturers, from design through to delivery. These choices importantly benefit the environment and contribute to the creation of healthy public spaces. They also help to bolster the local communities and economies from where we source our materials.
