Kronos pavers are produced in manufacturing plants with environmental management systems compliant to ISO 14001:2004 and EMAS (European Council Regulation 761/2001) and which have received the prestigious ecological mark ECOLABEL (EU Regulation 2002/272/EC). These environmental standards relate to safeguarding the environment and undertaking continuous improvement in environmental standards for both products and manufacturing sites and ensuring thehealthcare of the workforce.
As compared to wood decking, all alternative decking products are much more eco-friendly and sustainable. As compared to other alternative decking products, Green Bay Decking's formula is also superior. Their composite deck systems have been used on green LEED-certified buildings and projects for commercial, residential, and marine use. View their LEED statement for additional information. Green Bay Decking products contain rice hulls, a rapidly-renewable resource made from the discarded outer husks of rice kernels, and discarded paper pulp, a by-product of the paper-making process. Because of the close proximity of the local manufacturer that provides their paper by-product we qualify for additional LEED credits. Both rice hulls and paper by-product would often otherwise be incinerated or sent to land fills.
We start with Italian porcelain that is manufactured without the use of harmful chemicals, varnishes and resins. This ensures that Mbrico products will never release toxic gases, even when exposed to flames. Further, we ensure that each component is built to meet LEED standards, meaning you can earn up to 10 LEED credits for using Mbrico. And, our commitment to sustainability carries through over the life of your deck- unlike lumber, plastic, composite, or concrete alternatives that need to be replaced frequently, Mbrico decks are designed to last a lifetime on your property, instead of in a landfill.
Sill Plate is a tough, versatile pressure-treated lumber. Like borate-treated lumber, it’s guaranteed to stop termites and prevent decay, plus it’s compatible with carbon steel (black iron) fasteners. But unlike borate-treated lumber, it requires no special handling. ProWood's sill plate lumber is both reliable and easy to work with, combining the advantage of several green certifications with the power to stand up to decades of pests and the elements. Sill plate MCA (micronized copper azole) treated lumber is approved for any aboveground exterior application. Whenever the situation calls for superior quality pressure-treated lumber, consider the product that can handle it all.
