|COMPANY GREEN DESIGN MANUFACTURING QUALITY|
Recently, in partnership with Q & A Design, AyA fabricated wood components from solid maple offcuts from our door department for a stunning reciprocal canopy that surrounded our KBIB/IBS tradeshow booth. Solid wood shavings and used brown paper towels from restrooms are being composted and the waste from cleaning our finishing lines is recycled and reused by AyA.
Since it’s inception AyA has always strived to be a leader in green design and has been working ahead to provide a better and safer product for our clients and our environment. Although our solvent based finishes have always been low-VOC, after years of testing to ensure our quality would not be compromised, in May 2014 AyA changed over our solvent based topcoat to a water-based topcoat.
In the first quarter of 2018, the remainder of our stain line will be converted to water base with the introduction of the full line of water based stains and a water based sealer. Our objective is to convert our painted finishes to water-base by 2019. This voluntary switch to water-based finishes ensures AyA Kitchens is ahead of the curve and provides a superior and truly environmentally friendly product for our clients.
AyA launched its Green Design initiative in early 2007 with a premium line of no added urea formaldehyde plywood cabinets. In 2008 AyA launched EVO™, an extremely affordable no added urea formaldehyde alternative to its certified low emission standard line of cabinetry. All EVO™ cabinets are made with only EPP certified (Environmentally Preferable Product) 100% post industrial wood fiber particle board. AyA’s commitment to healthy environments also includes the use of only low HAPS (hazardous air pollutants) finishes and an exclusive UV cured water-based top coat finish.
