Just pure wood, no waste recycled material in our furniture! We use only above-standard quality material with CARB certification – above-standard, for which you do not have to pay extra! The basic European standard which deals with the contents of formaldehyde in particle boards, is called E1 and prescribes the maximum content of formaldehyde at below 8 mg per 100 g of particle board. The highest current standard is called CARB and prescribes the quantity of formaldehyde at below 4 mg per 100 g of particle board. HANAK NABYTEK, a.s. is currently the only producer in the Czech Republic that produces furniture using this certified material, which is used by very few producers in Europe!The CARB certification guarantees that only pure grown wood without any recycled materialis used in the particle material (recycled material is usually crushed remains of old furniture, varnishes, and further waste, which is usually contained in the particle boards with standard E2 and in a smaller quantity with E1).
E2 8-30 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of particle board. Very poisonous and prohibited in Europe!
E1 4-8 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of particle board. European standard.
CARB Less than 4 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of particle board. High quality material.
Even though we as the only company in the country meet the demanding certification of large-area material CARB Phase 2, mere compliance with the standard is not sufficient for us. The particle boards supplied for HANAK furniture contain pouze 2,1 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of material, which is well below the level of the European standard and the actual standard for CARB certification.
And what do these results mean for you?
- 100% health compliance
- increased strength and durability of bodies and elimination of shelf sagging
- extremely high strength of hardware fastening
We guarantee a health compliant product also thanks to another material processing technology used, namely thanks to the new PUR edge banding, which again is an above-standard procedure which most producers in this country do not offer. We provide you with the complete results and the certification information.
