Cabinetry | Santa Barbara Green Contractor
Regarding cabinetry, LUA, Inc., a Santa Barbara Green Contractor, and our preferred subcontractors can offer Green Building solutions. We suggest the use of materials that are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), an organization that promotes responsible forest resource management. Also, materials that do not contain added chemicals including formaldehyde.
“Green Built” cabinets can be manufactured using a variety of eco-friendly materials such as; superior core products like M3-grade particle board which is FSC and pre-finished with zero emission of UV acrylic durable surfaces, Agrifiber (a fiberboard) can be used which is made of annually renewable wheat straw and using a formaldehyde-free resin that can be overlaid with a veneer.
Cabinets can be accompanied with eco-friendly countertops such as Richlite which is made primarily of paper purchased from FSC-Certified sources and/or recycled paper.
