Ecology

The main material used by FAKRO is pinewood – a type of wood whose value as an ecological building material which is safe for the health has been known for generations.

 

The company sources wood from areas with planned forest management, which means that the amount of trees grown is greater than the amount of the timber harvested. Young trees absorbs several times more carbon dioxide than the old trees, hence it is advisable to renew the forest. Favouring timber harvested in this way contributes to an increase of the forest area, while giving us a chance to maintain an ecological environment.

 

Timber used for production is seasoned and dried in automatically controlled chambers with humidity of up to 12%. Thanks to eco-friendly furnaces, complex modern drying chambers are heated by the heat obtained from the combustion of post-production wood waste and highly energetic willow derived from FAKRO plantation.

 

Exploitation and processing natural resources imposes on us a special responsibility towards natural environment.

 

We care for the environment through:

  • developing and implementing eco-friendly products
  • using ecological technologies
  • minimising, utilising waste materials
  • reducing pollutant emission
  • reducing noise and vibration
