Constantly striving towards more environmentally sound products, solutions and systems requires not only rules and stated environmental objectives, it also requires commitment, attitude changes and practical tools for the daily work. Therefore, we have for a long time given space and resources to secure environmental work throughout the organization, and today we can say that the staff of LK, wholeheartedly and with skill, has the environment in mind at all times.
The LK Universal Eco product series is manufactured from dezincification resistant lead-free brass and comprises press fittings, manifolds and wall boxes that are used for HVAC installations. We are constantly trying to reduce the environmental impact of our products, and plan to expand the lead-free range gradually.
We always aim to use recycled materials in our products. All products with recycled material have the Recycle symbol in our product range.
LK HeatFloor 22, Slotted and Turning Board has received the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. This means that the board meets the Ecolabel's high standards on the limit value for formaldehyde emissions into the indoor environment.
When our factory in Ulricehamn was being built, it was obvious to focus on a reduced impact on the environment. We then built a large tank under the facility where waste heat is recycled from production and heats the entire facility with an area of 18,000 m2. The surplus heat from PEX factory production is the sole means of heating of the warehouse. From that point, we also supply energy for the district heating network of the municipality.
In order to ensure a quality and environmentally friendly production, we have developed an integrated management system according to ISO standards. We have been assessed and certified by LRQA in accordance with ISO 14001:2015 and 9001:2015.
In order to ensure an efficient and environmentally sound management of our products, we have chosen to join El-Kretsen. El-Kretsen operates a collection system and ensures that the collected batteries and electrical and electronic products are disposed of and recycled in an environmentally sound and correct manner according to applicable laws.
