Long before being green was trendy, we already had a green program from sourcing materials and supplies to recycling and waste. Besides being based in California, one of the most eco-friendly states in the union, we are extremely considerate of the environment. We recycle everything we can and produce very little trash that ends up in a landfill.
Our products offer a variety of Green advantages. Our posts and caps are aluminum, which is recyclable and high in recycled content. The recycled content of the specific alloy of the extrusions we order, typically contain 25% recycled aluminum. The stainless rods and components we use come from suppliers who are part of the Specialty Steel Industry of North America Association (SSINA). SSINA manufacturing standards for stainless range between 75-85% recycled content.
Much lighter than steel, aluminum has less environmental impact during shipping. Even after the very long and useful life span of our products, they are 100% recyclable.
From aluminum extrusions to stainless nuts and bolts, our components are sourced from 100% American-Made companies before being assembled in our California facility. Any extra material, cut-offs, and scrap are recycled locally.
