WAYLAND, NY — Gunlocke, a leading manufacturer of casegoods, conferencing, seating and lounge furniture, said it has renewed — and added — level certifications for a majority of its products.
The level designation reflects the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Assn. (BIFMA) Product Sustainability Standard. The level mark ensures a comprehensive, independent and impartial assessment of the environmental and social impacts of a product’s manufacture and considers energy usage, material selection, human and ecosystem health impacts.
Gunlocke products that meet the standards include:
• Tables: Converge, Kenna, Kennsington, Medley, Surfaces, Trio, Trio Training, Medley and Sojourn
• Seating: Amalfi, Alti, Attract, Austin, Washington, Liza, Mara, Miles, Scarlett, Stretto, Valor, Debonair, Cali, Camille, Carver, Contura, Harlow, Olla, Monde, Fitzgerald, Gracile, New Yorker, Vili, Sojourn, Molti, Porter and Ciji
• In addition, Gunlocke says all of its casegoods and conference collections have been renewed at level 2 criteria.
“Gunlocke is pleased to meet the thorough qualifications outlined in the level program,” Roy Green, Gunlocke’s Director of Stewardship and Sustainability, said in a statement. “Earning such distinction demonstrates our dedication to creating environmentally and socially responsible products. We continue to be committed to setting a higher standard in terms of product design, quality, service and delivery in the wood contract furniture market.”
