Every little helps!
At Park Farm Design we are committed to doing our bit to help preserve the environment. From small changes in our day to day office life to ensuring we work with the right products and sustainable resources.
Our products are manufactured in some of the most eco friendly factories around the world. We make a conscious decision to work with manufacturers that source their timber from sustainable forests and have FSC accreditation. The techniques and methods used to produce our high performance doors and windows are designed to be as energy efficient as possible.
As well as this bigger picture we strongly believe that it is the little things that help. We carry the same eco friendly frame of mind in our day to day office life and all correspondence and literature is sent via email. Quotations, order acknowledgments, drawings and invoices are all sent electronically with an added bonus of providing a much more efficient turn around time and fast responses. We are now well on the way to becoming a paper free office.
Timber Vs PVCu
The production of PVCu windows and doors leads to the release of highly poisonous chemicals which threaten the environment and human health. PVCu production involves no less than six of the most hazardous chemicals listed by European governments for priority elimination.
Timber is a sustainable resource. As long as the timber is sourced from managed forests and care is taken in choice of preservatives, paints and stains, timber windows are by far the best environmental choice. Aluminium windows closely follow as a recyclable bi-product.
Developments in timber door and window design and finishing means that Park farm Designs high performance products need minimal maintenance and have a much longer life than PVCu alternatives.
