For the ultimate benefit, sustainability must permeate an entire company—a totality of designing, manufacturing and creating—the same way Lynden Door approaches sustainability.
Wood contains an underlying sustainable value based on its fundamental properties, renewability and ability to lock in carbon. And Lynden Door accentuates this basic principle by enhancing the value of wood. We use rapidly renewable resources, demand higher recycled content, use efficient manufacturing to maximize wood fibers, find wood and field chips otherwise destined for a landfill and even send our excess sawdust to local farmers for use as livestock bedding. Already, sustainable wood goes further at Lynden Door.
The Sustainable Value
As product designers, Lynden Door innovates intelligent sustainable interior door solutions. Starting with the inherent sustainability of wood—and Lynden Door practices maximize that value—the sustainability focus extends into no-added urea formaldehyde glues (NAUF) and binders, no-VOC finishing, increased recycled content and third-party certification and accreditation. Lynden Door doesn’t follow the sustainable trends, we make it part of our manufacturing and customer-support process.
The popular molded door sold by Lynden Door is a terrific sustainable choice. Molded door facings contain no old growth timber and no added urea-formaldehyde*. The wood fibers that are used in the facings are generated both as residual waste from sawmill operations as well as a byproduct of logging operations that would otherwise be left to rot or be hauled to a landfill. Lynden Door molded facings are coated with a factory-applied low VOC primer.
