Sustainability

Fixed furniture and equipment – Stylish, safe and sustainable

Sustainability is our watchword. Architects and building contractors are now obligated to create buildings with a low environmental impact. At Boyco, these concerns are at the heart of our product development. Boyco ranges give you unique 'green' gains that make powerful contributions to best environmental practice.

BREEAM - STANDARDS FOR BEST PRACTICE

Breeam is the standard for best practice in sustainable design. We apply the principles in our own business and help you to do the same with any project you undertake.

'GREEN' GAINS

At our purpose-built factory, we use high performance water-borne timber lacquers which are non-toxic, anti-microbial, non-flammable and provide a superior finish. We source our American white ash timber from sustainable, fully approved forests. We coat our steel products in-house with renewable 'Hot-Dip Nylon' using energy efficient industrial powder coating ovens and extraction systems.

Anti-Microbial Protection

Microbes are all around us. Some microbes, especially bacteria, are a high contamination risk and result in the spread of disease.

In recent years, demand has increased for products to control the risk of bacterial contamination. This is particularly important in areas where high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are important, including school and educational environments for children and young people.

All our timber is coated with anti-microbial lacquer and our ‘activate’ anti-microbial ‘Hot Dip’ Nylon is formulated to stop bacteria surviving on its surface therefore preventing the spread of 99% of all known bacteria.

This is an excellent complement to proper cleaning procedures and is effective against E.Coli Staphylococcus aureus, Legionella pneumophila, Salmonellla typhimurium and MRSA.

Hot-Dip Nylon

Our ‘Hot-dip’ Nylon coating is 100% renewable and safe and gives our products exceptional durability and longevity. Made from castor oil, an actual waste/scrubland product, this ensures we are totally committed to 'green' processes.

‘HOT-DIP’ NYLON HAS THE FOLLOWING DISTINCT ADVANTAGES:

Environmentally friendly - extracted from a renewable source and non-toxic

‘Not cold to the touch’ - meeting DDA requirements

Impact resistance - such that when test hammered steel tube distorts before coating is damaged

Abrasion resistance - about 500x more resistant than the best oven-baked paints

Excellent hygiene properties

Outstanding chemical resistance

Class 1 fire resistance

Electrically insulating

Available in 9 standard colours
