Of greater importance than our products are our customers, whose satisfaction is paramount.
Our aim is simple; to deliver the finest products with an efficient, friendly, and personal service.
Sustainability and Environment
Encompass supply premium quality modern design furniture, woodburners and accessories, which are designed and manufactured to the most exacting standards.
Extreme weather conditions and sustained use of our premium quality garden furniture over time requires a manufacturing process that uses the very best, and frequently the most expensive raw materials.
There is a carbon footprint involved in the production of such furniture and accessories. However, one of the unique selling points for our ranges is that they are designed for a lifetime of use, not simply to be used for a short period of time, subsequently to be disposed of in a landfill.
At the end of their lifetime, many of our ranges of furniture can be re-conditioned for an extended additional lifetime of use. We encourage the full or partial recycling of those products that have reached the end of their useful lifetime.
Consequently, we believe our collections offer not only good value for money, but are also kinder to the environment over their lifetime than cheaper more disposable substitutes.
Most materials involved in production of furniture and accessories supplied by Encompass are recyclable.
Stainless steel is a highly durable material which is fully recyclable.
Aluminium is again highly durable and also completely recyclable.
Synthetic Textiles and Weaves
Synthetic “Viro” weave used for exterior loom furniture is fully recyclable.
Synthetic COAXXS weave as used in some outdoor loom furniture is made from a combination of PVC and Nylon, which are in themselves 100% recylcable. When combined in the COAXXS fibre, they are not fully recyclable, but can be recycled for re-use in different applications such as speed bumps and road building.
Batyline is another synthetic textile extensively used for outdoor furniture. Batyline is available either as a mesh fabric used for all-weather furniture upholstery, and also more recently as a synthetic weave. Batyline is another combination of PVC and Nylon, and is increasingly produced with recycled materials. The French manufacturer, Ferrari, has also developed and implemented a procedure to recycle this textile.
Polyethylene is used for outdoor furniture by some suppliers. This material is completely recyclable.
Teak is sourced from Indonesia, and is harvested under the authority of the Perum Perhutani organisation, which is an institution run by the Indonesian state. Being a natural product, teak is 100% recyclable.
MDF composite wood fibre board is used for some of our interior ranges of furniture. The board is composed of wood fibres made from a variety of materials. These include other woods, scrap, recycled paper, bamboo, carbon fibres and polymers, forest thinning and sawmill off-cuts. MDF is recyclable.
All packaging used is recyclable. Encompass recycles all packaging material left in our possession, together with waste paper from our office (excluding polystyrene at present).
Some of our suppliers manufacture almost exclusively in Europe, where EU employment laws apply. Other suppliers have factories in locations in the Far East including China, Thailand and Indonesia. At all locations the working conditions are optimal and are monitored according to local official regulations.
