At KFI we are very conscious of the environmental issues we all face. KFI takes every step possible to recycle, reuse and reduce waste. We feel it's incumbent upon all of our employees and vendors to be good stewards of the environment and conduct our business in a responsible manner. We strive to produce high quality products with a minimum impact on the environment. We feel this is not only an investment in our company's future...but an investment in the future of our planet. If you would like us to build a chair for you that has minimal environmental impact, the following options are available:
The environmental attributes listed below can apply to the following KFI Series: 200, 300, 400, 500, 800, 900, 1000, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 1700, 1800, 2000, 2100, 3200, 3300, 3400, 3700, 3800, 3900, 4700, 6100 and 6200.
FRAME: -FINISH: Offered in powder-coat finishes with no solvents
-STEEL: Some steel components contain pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content. (Call for information on specific models)
FABRIC: Some upholstery is better for the environment than others. KFI offers a variety of products from Guilford of Maine, Mayer and Momentum that are made with recycled or renewable polyester and have a reduced environmental impact vs. other fabrics.
SUSTAINABILITY: Life cycle considerations are important when we develop products...so KFI builds them to last! All of our products carry at least a 5 year frame warranty. We also offer replacement seats, backs and parts. This helps extend the life-cycle and reduce waste.
*Percentage may depend on local programs.
GREEN FOAM: Manufactured using an emission-free process. This foam is also made with plant based raw materials and organic, halogen-free fire retardants, significantly reducing the amount of petroleum-based products. (GREEN FOAM describes the environmental attributes, not the color.)
WOOD: Harvested from sustainable forest - no "old growth" source content. Many seat and back components are made with post consumer wood waste (recycled wood). Our components also meet Phase One of the California CARB Standards.
