Because we care about the environment....
KCMA CERTIFIED CABINETRY
Our cabinetry has been certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association using performance and construction standards for kitchen and vanity cabinets. The program is referenced by US government agencies, architects, builders, re-modelers and other specifiers. Cabinets that bear the KCMA certification seal are recognized in the marketplace as a quality product able to perform after a rigorous battery of tests simulating years of typical household use. Tests are performed by approved third party independent laboratories annually.
GREEN GUARD COMPONENTS
All of our Wilsonart laminate used in making counters is Greenguard certified. Greenguard certifies low-emitting products that reduce chemical exposure and improve indoor air quality.
SEVERE USE CABINETRY
We offer a full line of severe use certified cabinetry that has been certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association. These cabinets conform to specifications and performance standards set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. They are recognized and spec’d by government funded housing projects to endure under harsh household use. Tests are performed by approved third party independent laboratories annually. We have the capability of altering our construction and materials to meet any local housing authority or architectural design or requirement.
We are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Associations Environmental, Stewardship Program. The program was createdby the KCMA to help manufactures demonstrate their environmental commitment to environmental sustainability and help consumers identify environmentally friendly products. This program is aimed at protecting our environment and natural resources. Master WoodCraft Cabinetry scores "very high" in this program by being one of the few cabinet companies in America that does not use solvent based finishing that omits hazardous chemicals in our atmosphere. Ours is a totally water based finish.
We have an energy reduction program in place to constantly monitor our energy consumption. From using advanced technology in lighting our factory to minimizing our hours of operation and implementing a paperless information program we consume less raw materials and energy.
ANSI ACCREDITED CABINETRY
Our cabinetry and counters are accredited by ANSI
(American National Standards Institute) and have passed rigorous testing for quality standards. ANSI is recognized both nationally and internationally and has become the bench mark for quality certification programs.
Our recycling program here is based on as little waste reaching a landfill as possible. All of our scrap wood is processed using several different types of wood grinders depending on the size of the scrap. All of the processed wood is accumulated in sealed containers and sent to a co-generation electrical operation and consumed as boiler fuel. The thermal foil doors we offer have waste generated from the trimming of the thermal foil from the back edges. We use a cardboard baler to compress the vinyl and send it to a vinyl re-cycler. All of the materials we purchase are protected by cardboard and metal bands. When we consume these materials we bale the cardboard and send it to a paper re-cycler. The metal bands used in securing the shipping dunnage is chipped up and sent to a scrap metal re-cycler.
