Whiteboards earn Cradle to Cradle certification

January 01, 2007 |

PolyVision has introduced a line of whiteboards that are fitted with the company’s new “green” erasable writing surface, called ceramicsteel. The surface, which recently received a Silver rating from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry’s Cradle to Cradle certification program for sustainable materials, products, and systems, is composed of vitrified glass-hard ceramic surface fused to light-gauge enameling grade steel at approximately 700 degrees C. The result is a durable suface that resists impacts, abrasion, scratching, and color fading. Cradle to Cradle certification takes into account the environmental impact of a product during its entire life cycle, from the amount of energy and waste needed to produce the product to its ability to be recycled.
