What materials are your products made of?
Most Franklin and Ben full-size cribs are 100% solid New Zealand pine wood, with the exception of cribs with under drawers, solid side panels and backboard that are made from CARB II compliant MDF.
Our dressers are made of New Zealand pine wood and CARB II compliant MDF for the drawers.
New Zealand pine wood is one of the most sustainable and renewable wood resources, and its forests are expanding, increasing total wood production annually.
For any product that contains MDF, we are required by law to follow the CARB (California Air Resource Board) regulations, which regulate and control formaldehyde emissions in MDF. CARB requires that our factories purchase their raw material from a certified MDF manufacturer. All MDF found in our products is from CARB certified manufacturers and is indeed safe.
