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.
Stewards of our Environment
Lynden Door Inc., as a manufacturer of quality doors, believes we must be a responsible member of our community and steward of our environment. We have developed a team of recycle industry experts and invested in a centrally located campus Recycle Center to incorporate innovative residual recovery strategies into our daily operations. In our Recycle Center our team of experts, sorts and reworks the residuals from our manufacturing processes to repurpose them into products that can be used for packaging materials, component parts for door assembly, and returns to vendors for reuse. Currently we are recycling multiple truck loads per week of materials and will continue to invest manpower and capital as needed to continue our goals and objectives to protect our environment.
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.
