No tropical wood is used, only beech, birch, and oak. Our Formica PSM high-pressure laminate tops can be burnt after use without any emissions.
All steel parts are recyclable. Before we finish the chrome/lacquer, all grease/oil is removed by alkaline wash and then sent for destruction. The lacquering is produced by electrostatic epoxy powder coating that gives a minimum of waste. The electrostatic chrome (chrome 3) is recyclable.
The limited numbers of plastic parts that are used are recyclable by grinding. All upholstery and frames of synthetic material are entirely free of C.F.C. emissions.
All glue is water-based.

UpholsteryWe work purely with selected suppliers, specializing in materials for the contract market. Johanson aims, as far as possible, to use Eco-labelled materials in our standard range.
Seat Frames and FoamOur frames meet the toughest demands and are tested at RISE (Research Institute of Sweden).
To offer top-quality furniture for the contract market, we have chosen to work with foam which meets the highest fire classification CMHRCombustion Modiﬁed High Resilience. CMHR is a polyurethane foam with better fire retardant features, compared with traditional foam. CMHR is standard on all upholstered Johanson products.
Fabric:Vacuuming is usually sufficient to clean the fabric. To remove stains, use lukewarm water and gently wipe (do not rub too much on the material).

If this does not help, contact the supplier for further instructions.
