Overly Door Company is pleased to announce that Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) has granted Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Certification to Overly's Wood Acoustic Door products.
FSC Chain of Custody Certification means that Overly Door meets strict tracking requirements for ensuring that the wood acoustic products it sells as FSC-Certified come from well-managed forests. In addition, there are documented controls to make sure the integrity of the environment is upheld. The FSC has accredited SCS as a third-party to certify companies according to FSC international standards to help promote the environmentally appropriate management of the world's forests. Overly Door's FSC Chain of Custody certificate code is SCS-COC-003417.
Headquartered in Greensburg, PA since 1888, Overly Door Company, an ISO 9001 Certified Supplier, is an industry leader in the design, testing and manufacturing of Sound-Retardant, Blast- and Pressure-Resistant, and Security Door and Window Products. Overly provides specialty door and window systems for commercial and industrial applications in both the private and public sectors.
"Overly Door is committed to providing our customers with products that are both of the highest quality and that are environmentally friendly," says Jon Reese, Director of Sales for Overly Door Company. "This certification will be appreciated by architects, engineers and contractors who specify green building products for environmentally-conscientious building applications. Chain-of-custody means that Overly can identify which products come from an FSC-certified forest and track those materials as they leave the forest and enter our manufacturing process."
In a related development of Overly's green initiative, the Company last year announced that all Overly wood and plastic laminate products contain no added urea formaldehyde resins in their manufacture. This includes both Overly's UL fire-rated and non-fire rated wood acoustic door systems. Mr. Reese noted, "Overly Sound Control Products have always been lead-free, asbestos-free and formaldehyde-free, including: Acoustical Metal Swinging Doors; Oversized Swinging Doors; Horizontal Sliding Doors; and, Fixed Window Systems."
