Our Commitment to Sustainability: FSC® Doors

Wooden doors make beautiful additions to your home, but did you ever consider their origins? Have they been produced in an environmentally friendly way, and how can you tell?

Timber, a precious and renewable resource, can greatly benefit our environment and communities. However, if forests are excessively exploited without proper oversight, the consequences can be devastating. Fortunately, the Forest Stewardship Council® (INT-COC-003944.500) certification offers a solution. It is a widely acknowledged international standard that guarantees responsibly produced wood products. To delve deeper into the FSC® and its positive impact, visit their official website.

Here at Express Doors Direct we're pleased to offer a wide array of FSC® certified doors from a variety of manufacturers. We're committed to providing sustainable options without compromising on style or functionality.

The Benefits of Forest Stewardship Council Certification for Doors

The FSC supports the responsible management of forests across the world. With their stamp on a product, you know it helps to support biological diversity as well as benefiting the lives of workers and indigenous people.

Through the sustainable sourcing of materials used to create products like wooden doors, we can collectively reduce the environmental impact of using timber in construction. FSC certified products use timber from well managed forests ensuring that the wood is harvested sustainably, and the forest ecosystem is conserved.

This responsible forestry keeps timber production sustainable, protecting the world's forests from accelerating deforestation. This supports the environment as well as the future of the industry, ensuring that beautiful timber products can be made for many years to come without a lack of resources. With a happy workforce and thriving forests, you can see the benefits this certification brings.

Our FSC Certified Door Range

We stock a wide range of products from FSC certified companies like Climadoor, JELD-WEN, JB Kind, Deanta, and XL Joinery. We encourage you to visit their websites if you'd like to find out more about their environmental policies. 

When it comes to our FSC certified products, you'll benefit from a varied selection of styles, types of wood and finishes. All our doors are competitively priced so you can satisfy your inner designer, your budget and your conscience!

FSC Labels: What to Look For

The tree and tick symbol accompanied by the initials 'FSC' creates an instantly recognisable logo. This is what you need to look out for if you want to buy certified doors, as this cannot be displayed without the FSC's approval.

As we sell online, you'll need to look for this logo on the product page of the door that you're interested in, as well as further details written in the description. Our suppliers often apply FSC labels to their products too, so you'll see these when your door arrives.

Your Choice Makes a Difference

We understand that many consumers like you are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of the products they buy. FSC-certified doors carry a recognised eco-label, so you can be confident in the choices you're making.

With sustainable building at the heart of many of today's new developments, looking for the FSC logo helps timber users to make smart choices. You can be assured that the stringent FSC standards have been met so you can select the products that meet your project's sustainability goals.

Even if you're just buying one door, your decisions today will impact future generations, and you can choose something that aligns with your values.
