Doing their part to protect the environment, AmpliVox Sound Systems, Northbrook, Ill, is now manufacturing and selling public address systems and podiums that are RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substance) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) compliant.
The 40 year-old audio system specialist meets these requirements in nearly all of the wood products they manufacture.
“Our lecterns and podiums are forest friendly—no trees were cut down to produce AmpliVox products. We believe that everyone can positively affect their impact upon the environment and we’re dedicated to doing our part," says Don Roth, the company’s CEO. "We care about the world around us, so we have invested in products, people, and services that exemplify that concern. At AmpliVox, the quality of our products and the protection of our environment go hand-in-hand.”
To help stretch forest resources, public address systems and lecterns are a made with environmentally friendly particleboard and use recycled post-industrial wood residues. Urban or post-consumer recycled wood fibers are used within the Tafisa panel production mix, which enables the recycled fibers to have an extended life. To help reduce, reuse, and recycle to conserve energy, the company has switched to using recycled packaging and biodegradable packing peanuts.
Green Cross has certified the raw particle board panels as being 100% recycled and recovered wood fibers.
The range of products are made in the United States (with a few exceptions), meet stringent UL standards.
