Recycled Aluminum Extrusions

Not all aluminum extrusions are equal. Our aluminum extrusions are lightweight, reconfigurable, and made from up to 70% recycled aluminum! These recycled aluminum extrusions provide structural integrity with significant design appeal. All are engineered to assemble quickly and look good for years. MADE IN THE USA.

LED Lighting

LED lights are 10 times more energy efficient than regular halogen lighting and last 10 times longer. While halogen lights burn brightly, but they also produce a lot of heat. They can cause a nasty burn when touched by accident and are banned from many convention centers as a fire hazard precaution. When compared to halogen bulbs, LEDs quite clearly come out on top in a variety of ways. While halogen lights have their advantages, when it comes to savings, longevity, and energy consumption, you cannot go wrong with an LED light source.

Made from 100% Recycled Soda Bottles, Paradise Fabric is the highest quality 100% recycled content fabric made in America today. Up to 40% more durable than similar "green" fabric print media. MADE IN THE USA

Eco-Glass

Eco-Glass is a "green" alternative to standard acrylic or plexi-glass and is made from 100% post-industrial recycled content. Eco-Glass can be used for shelving, substrate infill's, panel infill's, direct-to-substrate printing, and much more. Unlike standard acrylic which is made from petroleum based virgin plastics, Eco-Glass is made from 100% recycled material and is just as durable as its competitors.

Bamboo Plywood

Bamboo plywood is made from 100% rapidly renewable bamboo, using adhesives that are both strong and emission free. Bamboo is a member of the grass family and is harvested every 7 years.

Shipping Cases

Our plastic shipping cases are 100% recyclable and made from recycled plastics. Rotationally molded from recycled plastics, the shipping cases are as durable as traditional cases currently used in the industry. They are rollable and easy to transport by a single person.

FSC Certified Wood

Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification is the best indicator that wood is harvested sustainably.  FSC certification is widely considered the best forestry certification program, because the wood is harvested while protecting fragile eco-systems, respecting native cultures, preventing illegal logging, and much more.

Eco-Board

Eco-Board is a printable and completely biodegradable polystyrene material. It offers a 2-sided printable surface which makes it an eco-friendly alternative to Sintra (made from PVC), and can biodegrade in a landfill in as little as 9 months. Eco-Board comes in 3 different thicknesses, 1/32", 1/16", 1/8".

Stains and Finishes

Our stains and finishes are water-based, low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound), and VOC Free. All stain, paint, and finishing products are low or no emitting treatments for minimal environmental impact.

ReCo

Flexible substrate material made from 100% recycled plastics. ReCo is perfect for graphic backers, substrates, and infills. ReCo is also used in our Eco-Panel system as an inner substrate to provide durability. Available in 1/16" and 1/8".
