Why MDF?

Ecco Doors are manufactured from eco friendly homogenous MDF

Eco Friendly
MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is made from recycled and recovered wood waste that would otherwise be burned or thrown into a landfill. This allows us to make better use of our valuable natural wood resource and optimal use of each tree.

Benefits of Using MDF

  • The MDF used in the manufacture of Ecco Doors contains less than 0.21 parts per million (PPM) of formaldehyde, which conforms to the voluntary standard for formaldehyde emissions. NPA 9-87
  • MDF is manufactured from 86% pre consumer recycled material and utilizes 95% of each tree that is used to make the product, as opposed to 65% utilization in the case of solid lumber.
  • MDF is environmentally benign. Wood products take less energy to produce, create fewer environmentally harmful by-products, can be reused or recycled, and have less environmental impact over their life-cycle than other buildings products.
  • MDF is biodegradable. Wood products are completely biodegradable when their service life is done. This is not the case with metal, concrete or plastic.
  • Wood is a renewable resource. MDF is made from a natural resource that is completely renewable and sustainable. Metal, concrete and plastics, on the other hand are all extracted from fixed, non-renewable resources.
