‘Has this timber come from an Australian certified sustainable forest?’
Lumber Furniture only uses suppliers that strictly adhere to a sustainable management of resources that are both FSC & PEFC Chain of Custody Certified giving even more proof that the timber supplies we source are produced legally & sustainably. We are committed to our customers in being environmentally responsible.
Forests are one of the most valuable natural resources in the world. We are mindful that in today’s world there is ever increasing emphasis on impact to our environment in all that we do. We are committed to ensuring that our forests are there for future generations. We only deal with suppliers who are equally committed.
In Australia there are three forestry certification schemes that aid users of wood and wooden products in knowing the source of the wood they are using.
They are “The Australian Forest Certification Scheme (AFCS)”, “Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC)”, and “The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)”
What is recycled or reclaimed timber?
Recycled timber or reclaimed timber is timber that is has been repurposed.
Lumber Furniture sources reclaimed timber straight from suppliers that carry the largest ranges of genuine recycled, re-milled timber and industrial salvage in Australia.
Recycled timber is carefully selected and shipped direct from demolition sites around the country including unused railways, abandoned or demolished buildings, run-down wharves and bridges.
