ECO-Design Basics

 

Bishop's eco-friendly displays combine friendly design, engineering and materials to create a product with a reduced carbon footprint. Bishop's staff will consider these factors alongside your design intent to achieve the optimal product design.

 

Knock-Down Construction - KD fixtures reduce shipping demands (fewer trucks means less carbon), shipping costs, and increase product flexibility.

Veneered MDF versus solid hardwood - Wood veneer over MDF reduces hardwood demand and lowers material costs.

Water-base and low VOC finishes, adhesives and sealants - Products containing lower quantities of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) can improve a stores air quality and reduce environmental strain.
