Armstrong Cabinets’ Origins™ Series offers the durability and strength of all plywood construction with the environmental benefits of sustainable, low emitting materials to provide added options when building or remodeling a home or buying cabinetry.
The hardwood plywood materials used to construct the new Origins Series utilizes an urea-formaldehyde free, soy-based adhesive called PureBond®. The hardwood plywood is derived responsibly from managed forests, and then enhanced with a proprietary resin, giving it particularly strong bonding and water-resistance qualities. In addition, the Origins Series combines easy installation and maintenance with the durability of Allwood™, Armstrong’s top-tier construction with quality features that usually only are found in custom cabinetry.
“While all Armstrong Cabinet products are a safe and sustainable choice, an Origins cabinet combined with any of Armstrong’s solid wood center panel door styles offers the best available option for projects that require no added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) materials,” said Steve Nash, vice president, Armstrong Cabinets, Sales & Service. “Aesthetics, function and cost are primary concerns when designing a kitchen and our goal is to present different options so customers can make individual choices with confidence.”
“Consumers love choices and Armstrong delivers in a big way,” said Nash. “Brand recognition is an important piece of the puzzle, and Armstrong certainly enjoys that in the consumer’s mind.”
The Armstrong name is synonymous in the homeowner’s mind with quality, trust, value and dependability. It is one of the most highly recognized brands in building materials.
Committed to Sustainability
Armstrong cabinetry combines unmatched quality, style and function with sustainable attributes like recycled materials and low emitting composite wood. Using Origins Series cabinets can contribute to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) green building certification system, for LEED NC EQ Credit 4.4, Low-Emitting Materials: Composite Wood. Additionally, an Origins Series cabinet and any Armstrong solid wood center panel door style can satisfy the emissions standards of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Phase 2 regulations that went into effect in January 2010.
Armstrong solid wood center panel door styles are compatible with the Origins Series, including Arborcrest™, Bali™, Calibra™, Coronet™, LaCerise™, LaCerise™ Arch, Leighton™, Moderno™, Olympus™, Sedona™ and Town&Country™.
All Armstrong Cabinets also are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP) for commitment to the responsible use of natural resources through sound environmental management and sustainable practices. “The certification means that our products and literature can carry the ESP seal, letting consumers, builders, architects, and designers know that they are supporting sustainability when they buy or specify our products,” said Nash.
“Armstrong has long been a leader in sustainable forestry practices and innovative manufacturing. We continue to reach out to homeowners to give them top-quality choices in their kitchen cabinet selections,” said Nash.
