Origin of wood material and PEFC certified
The wood materials used in the products come from forests managed according to the principles of sustainable development. No protected wood species are used in the products. ISKU employs the certified tracking system for wood origin, PEFC (Chain of Custody).
The wood-based boards used in furniture (chipboard, MDF and HDF board, plywood and hardboard) meet the requirements of formaldehyde class E1, as defined in accordance with standard EN-120 or EN 717-1. Melamine-coated boards belong to construction material emission class M1, which indicates a low level of indoor air emissions (e.g. formaldehyde, VOC, ammonia, odours).
For surface treatment, we use 100% UV lacquers and water-based stains, lacquers and paints. As regards heavy metals, the pigments used in the stains meet the requirements in section 3 of the Toy standard EN 71. All surface materials treated with water-based and solvent-free varnishes meet the requirements of emission class M1 for construction materials, which indicates low levels of indoor air emissions (e.g., formaldehyde, VOC, ammonia, odours). Metal parts are powder-painted, so no solvent emission is generated in production.
