Made on our own factory line and stamped with our logo as a mark of authenticity, our shutters are sustainably sourced and distributed. Made-to-measure to ensure the perfect fit to every window without costing the earth.
At S:CRAFT, we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products and building resilient processes throughout manufacturing and distribution. Starting from the materials used to the finished product in your home, each element within the shutter is made to the highest quality, creating beautiful window coverings that last and can be produced with minimal impact on our planet.
What is the Sustainability we are trying to achieve? Our focus on Sustainability, otherwise known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), is a business model that considers the environmental, social, and economic impacts of both product and business activities.
Throughout the years, we have been identifying, analysing and improving upon existing processes to make our business model more sustainable, not just in terms of product, but also in the way that it is distributed. Right from sourcing materials sustainably, through to the manufacturing process itself, through to dependable window coverings that make a home more energy efficient, at S:CRAFT we are doing what we can to work together with partners and ensure the most sustainable shutters and blinds that we can.
At S:CRAFT we prioritise key sustainability goals from sourcing to home, forests to your window!
All of the wood used in the production of our shutter ranges has been sourced from responsibly managed forests that have a robust chain of custody from forest to factory.
S:CRAFT’s wood supply chain is carefully managed in compliance with the United Kingdom Timber Regulation (UKTR), which ensures harvesting practices are legal, encourages sustainable harvesting practices and supports global forest governance.
Our manufacturing partner in Asia is just as committed to sustainability as we are and produces a CSR report annually. We work closely with them, to ensure we are here for people, for the planet.
Looking at how best to improve materials and processes means improving efficiency and helping reduce costs, but it also sustains the business into the future and ensures compliance with key standards.
We are incredibly proud to work with one of the best manufacturers of shutters and blinds, who offer superior quality control practices, such as quarter sawing timber to make robust wooden louvres, and create less wastage.
All our wooden shutters are stored in climatic zones and kiln-dried, removing any unwanted moisture, enhancing the quality and extending the product life. Their top-of-the-range manufacturing techniques ensure the product we offer you is the best and built to last for many years.
We make sure that our shutter ranges are fully compliant with REACH regulations, an acronym that stands for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.
The overall aims of REACH are to: Provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals in products. This means that whether it is in the MDF we use, our hardwoods, paint or ABS, the number of hazardous chemicals used is kept to an absolute minimum.
Not only are our products big on environmental safety and non-toxic, but they also exceed the most stringent international safety standards for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and are CARB P2 compliant for off-gassing.
At S:CRAFT we value our planet, and so across everything we do, we want to reduce the impact we have upon our environment, and that means making sure our products reflect this core value.
As an important part of any home, insulation is not just about heat loss through roofs and walls, it is also about windows. The shutters and blinds we supply have four key roles to play in terms of the sustainability of your home, as well as through our processes.
