Timber from Responsibly Managed Sources
Our commitment to the environment: David Salisbury are committed to green policies and the implementation of proactive measures to help protect and sustain the environment for future generations.
We recognise the impact of our operations on the environment and aim to be an increasingly efficient. We strive to minimise any detrimental effects as a result of our operations. Some examples of how we achieve this are detailed below.
We specialise in using timbers selected for their qualities of durability, strength and performance; giving our products their timeless and classic appeal. Building in timber carries important environmental responsibilities, and when properly managed is far preferable to the use of aluminium or petrochemical-based plastics.
David Salisbury supports the responsible management of the world’s timber resources by promoting the trade in timber and timber products from well-managed forests and by the use of Siberian Larch and Sapele.
Using in-house developed software, cutting edge timber machining technology and our experience of working with timber for over two decades, we have optimised the utilisation of timber sections reducing the amount of offcuts and rejects and therefore the amount of waste generated by the joinery process. View more in our factory video.
All primers, paints and stains are water-borne and micro-porous allowing the timber to breathe naturally. Because our finishes are water based they release water rather than solvents in the atmosphere making it more suitable for our environment.
We can all contribute to making a cleaner and safer environment and ensure environmental issues remain a focal point and receive proper attention. We comply with relevant environmental legislation and takes a proactive approach to any future requirements and obligations.
