and Sustainability

Gaber® production employs exclusively high-tech thermoplastic materials, which are 100% recyclable. Gaber® produces plastic injected materials without added chemicals. These materials are purchased within the European Union, exempted from registration with ECHA agency (European Agency for Chemicals Substances).
The production waste is used, by Gaber®, as secondary raw material in order to manufacture ifferent products in which aesthetic requirements are not important. Each techno-polymer item is arked with a specific symbol, which identifies the kind of polymer for a quick identification and a consequent recycling.

Gaber® metal structures, in the full respect of our Natural Environment, are available with “trivalent” chroming and painted finishes. Prime-quality special Epoxy powder coating used on Gaber® frames enhance color stability from batch to batch and over time, increasing its corrosion-resistance and achieving excellent resistance to atmospheric agents. Wooden products are manufactured in accordance with the European Regulations in force regarding formaldehyde emissions from woodbased products. Gaber® uses wooden raw materials coming from PEFC chain of custody certified materials. The flexible polyurethane cold-pressed paddings Gaber® uses on its upholstered products do not contain CFC/HCFC (ODP=0: do not contribute the reduction of the atmospheric ozone layer), they are fire-retardant class 1-IM UNI 9175 following European Standards. Gaber® coverings, fabrics and leathers, belong to a wide range of colors and patterns, which are all tested in order to achieve the best performance, among which resistance to abrasion and artificial light. Gaber’s range of fabrics are all non-toxic and non-allergenic. Fire-retardant fabrics and eco-leather upholstery are also available.

Gaber in 2020 received the Compraverde Veneto Companies 2020 Award from the Veneto Region for the Alhambra Eco and Epica Eco chair. These two projects transform wood-plastic waste into a new resource, managing the integrated cycle capable of completing and closing the virtual circle of sustainability, from the recovery of waste and production scraps to the regeneration of new plastic products. that nothing to envy to the original raw material.
