Sustainability

Our company is committed to working towards a sustainable future. As a result, we at Alura Woodgrain have a long-term approach and strategy when it comes to our environmental policy. By continuously improving our way of thinking and working, we can minimize our footprint and help create long-lasting products and projects.

Future Focused 

Product Life Cycle

Crafted with 5% pre-consumer and 15-20% post-consumer recycled steel, Alura Woodgrain products are sustainable and help you reduce your environmental impact. Plus, they’re 100% recyclable at the end of their lifecycle, allowing you to divert waste from landfills.

Sustainable Features

In addition to the recyclability, Alura Woodgrain products have a Kynar PVDF paint which helps to achieve solar reflectance of over 70%. This minimizes the heat island effect put out into the atmosphere and can be useful when seeking LEED Certification.

Labour Practices

The Alura Woodgrain team views sustainability holistically including sustainable business practices like paying our team livable, competitive wages accompanied by robust compensation packages including Health Benefits, Retirement Savings Plans, and Wellness Spending Accounts.
