Read below to learn more about the materials we source, their quality, and their impact. If you have questions, please contact us.
SteelSteel is a readily available, endlessly recyclable material known for its strength and durability. Because it is nearly unbreakable, the majority of our chairs can support up to 600 pounds.
WoodWe source wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, meaning it comes from “responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.” You can read more about FSC certification at us.fsc.org.
Wood FinishBecause our outdoor wood does not require finish, no maintenance beyond standard cleaning is necessary. Our indoor woods receive a low-VOC polyurethane finish, chosen for its durability and low impact on the environment during application.
Powder CoatPowder coat has a long lifespan. It resists chipping and scratching, retains color, and produces no off-gassing, making it an industry-wide finish preference. Because it is applied electrostatically, no particles are emitted into the environment during application. Steel can be re-coated if needed, indefinitely prolonging the lifespan of your furniture.
HardwareWhenever possible, RAD pieces are 100% welded, using no fasteners. When needed, only anti-corrosive steel hardware is used. Our standard foot hardware is durable, non-marking rubber or nylon, and our larger tables can be provided with adjustable feet, boltable feet, or casters upon request.
LEED & Environmental CertificationsOur furniture contributes to specific LEED credits. For questions about specific environmental qualifications, contact us.
