Our LIGNIA and LIGNIA Fire products are continuing to create a buzz in the US market. Not only have our products been specified for multiple projects across North America, we’ve also been gaining plenty of impressive certifications along the way.

Our most recent accreditation comes from the highly respected MAS Green Certified® Program. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, MAS is an emission testing lab, specializing in helping companies enter the green market with low VOC emitting products.

Low VOC refers to volatile organic compounds that are not harmful to the environment and humans.

Testing, testing...

 

The certification recognizes that LIGNIA and LIGNIA Fire is safe to use for indoor environments, such as schools and residences.

In order to gain this certification, both types of LIGNIA wood were rigorously tested, in line with:

• the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Standard Method

• the BIFMA furniture sustainability standards

• formaldehyde emission testing requirements of the California EPA

• And conservative chemical emissions limits, referenced by the US Green Building Council LEED and CHPS

 

Suitable for indoors and outdoors

 

Our LIGNIA products for land-based use are proving themselves high-quality, durable timbers for exterior applications and we are delighted that they are now also being recognized for their environmentally-friendly credentials in interior applications, including flooring, wall paneling and joinery.

Sourced from responsibly managed FSC® plantations, LIGNIA Fire is manufactured to include built-in flame retardancy. With a Class A fire rating (ASTM E2768), LIGNIA Fire removes the need for costly additional flame-retardant treatments on the wood, meaning you can start working with it as soon as it arrives.

All of our modified wood products also come with a 50-year warranty against rot and fungal decay in above ground applications, to give you total peace of mind. Learn more about our range of products here.
