A 100% French manufacturer based in Bouille, Vendée (85), our resolutely responsible approach is focussed on the design and beauty of wood.

High Standards, Ethics, Aesthetics and Engagement are the constant values that guide our teams as they strive to meet your needs in France and abroad.

Certification

GUARANTEEING THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE SOURCED FROM CONTROLLED RESOURCES

Initiated in 1999 by European wood industry companies, in collaboration with manufacturers, PEFC certification applies to all wood processing stages to promote and ensure that products are sourced from forests meeting economic, ecological, social and ethical standards.

PEFC certification promotes sustainable forest management, and thereby benefits:

  • the environment: protection of forests (biodiversity reserves, CO2 sinks and climate regulators);
  • citizens: protection of those who live and work in forests, public reception;
  • the economy: rational, economically beneficial forest exploitation.

The PEFC label, when affixed to a wooden or wood-based product, guarantees consumers that the products they are purchasing come from responsible sources, and that their purchases contribute to sustainable forest management.

Each year, a follow-up audit ensures that the factory still meets the certification criteria, such as respect for forest flora and fauna, the prohibition of GMOs, the working conditions of forestry workers and the conservation of dead wood to promote biodiversity.

Cardineau has been PEFC certified since 2007

OUR PRINCIPLES

WORKING FOR TOMORROW, TODAY

An expectation of work well done, high quality seating, with original, well-executed curves.

Ethics, professionalism, elegance and performance in our business dealings.

Aesthetics in the development of our products.

A responsible, company-wide engagement to protecting the environment. We work today for the generations of the future, in our production methods and recycling R&D.

A responsible approach

French sourcing

The majority of our veneers and plywoods are sourced from France, primarily from the regions of Burgundy, Franche Comté and Grand Est, and more specifically from the Brugère company.

The quality

We conduct an ISO 9001 compliant process in terms of documentation and production monitoring.

Fire classification

In fire safety, "reaction to fire" and "resistance to fire" are two different concepts. They are codified at the French and European levels in a highly regulated fashion. Reaction to fire describes the material's behaviour as fuel for fire (combustibility, flammability), defined by the M classification.

In France, there is a classification system (NF P. 92.507 standard), composed of 5 categories, which defines materials' reaction to fire: the categories range from M0 to M4, with M4 being the most flammable and M0 the least flammable.

All pieces supplied by our company can be of class M3 or M4, depending on the thickness. If necessary, we can apply a class M1 coating (flame retardant glue and/or varnish).
