Environmental Stewardship

As a manufacturing design company we take our responsibility to the environment as seriously as we take our responsibility to our customers. 

Traceable provenance is vital to us

Our zinc, solid brass, solid bronze, aluminium and 316 grade stainless steel are certified quality from accredited producers. We ensure that our engineers are accredited with ISA13485, ISO14001 and ISO9001 as well as being experts in precision componentry.

ISO 14001:2015

We comply with international standards on environmental management systems.

All of our milled, turned, and CNC components in brass, stainless steel, and aluminium are made under ISO certified conditions including complying with international agreed standards on environmental management systems. This ensures efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.

RoHS (Directive 2002/95/EC)

We follow international legal guidelines on disposable of hazardous material.

Our brass, stainless steel, and aluminium products are RoHS-certified, confirming that the proportion of hazardous, or difficult to dispose substances such as lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and cadmium are limited to the maximum allowed under international law.


We follow European Regulation around safe chemical use.

REACH is a European Regulation around use of chemicals that certifies safe chemical use. Producers such as our engineering partners are warranted to provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals and safeguards both those involved in the manufacturing process and end-users.

Green Building Council / Enviromark Gold

No liquid chemicals, solvents or caustic solutions used in our manufacture.

Our “Electro™” powder coat finishes used on our sliding door and stair hardware are not only highly durable but made from UV resistant materials with no liquid chemicals, solvents or caustic solutions used in manufacture. The Electro™ range has a negligible VOC content, and is suitable for a wide range of climatic conditions, and have earned both Enrivomark Gold, and Green Building Council Australia certification.

Recycled Packaging

For a minimal footprint over 95% of the components and packaging we use are made in NZ.

As a New Zealand designer and manufacturer, we are proud of the fact that over 95% of all the components and packaging used for our products are made right here in New Zealand. To keep our footprint even smaller, most are made within 20km of our head office! Our in-house practices encourage the use of recyclable materials where possible, and we work with suppliers leading their fields in solutions that reduce consumption of materials used in manufacturing.
