One hundred percent of the particleboard used in our closet systems is recovered from "post industrial waste streams." That means it is recovered from the manufacturing process that wood mills utilize to manufacture the lumber used elsewhere in your home. Building our closet organizers from recovered particleboard has far less impact on forests than building from solid wood. Re-using wood fibers to produce recovered particleboard has far less impact than burning the by-product from wood mills for energy, known as co-generation, or sending that by-product to landfills.
This particleboard already complies with the Phase I, January, 2009, maximum formaldehyde emission limit set by the California Air Resource Board on April 26, 2007.
We are proud that the garage organizers we use meet future high standards set in California for formaldehyde emissions and air quality. One of the highest priorities at ClosetPlace and Garagefitters is to stay aware and ahead of all relevant regulatory policies that impact our products.
We are pleased to now offer solid hardwood panels from Columbia Forrest Products featuring PureBond® technology. Panels are constructed using no added urea formaldehyde components and no added urea formaldehyde adhesives. PureBond® uses soy based adhesive technology.
Columbia's formaldehyde-free decorative panels are also compliant with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standards, earning one point for LEED®'s EQ Credit 4.4 for Low-Emitting Materials: Composite Wood, and satisfy the emissions standards of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Phase 2 regulations.

"... ClosetPlace uncluttered my artist studio and turned it into a functioning studio that helped to contain all the supplies I use and need to create. Before this stunning transformation of closets, cabinets and shelves, I found it difficult to find what I needed, get space to set up and then try to create..." read more
