Longevity is the Key to Sustainability

In the wake of the international climate crisis, design, architectural, and construction companies are researching ways to more sustainably maintain their business operations. In pursuit of the most sustainable materials, factors such as sourcing, production, and distribution are being taken into account – each stage of a product’s life cycle is being carefully analysed. The end goal is to maximise the lifespan of the product and reduce its environmental footprint.

An integral, yet often overlooked, element of a product’s sustainability is its ability to be recycled, as well as how much of its raw materials can be repurposed. That is largely due to the current costs of refining and repurposing a given product’s material.

However, with the proper steps taken, companies like Push or Pull have been able to provide products, such as architectural door handles, to those seeking longevity without compromising the quality of service.

What Makes a Product Sustainable?

Timber companies can acquire certifications such as FSC and PEFC to validate their commitment to environmental accountability in the workplace. Being a renewable resource, the methods of sustainable manufacturing and repurposing timber are abundant.

On the manufacturing front, low-energy production that utilizes non-toxic finishes is on the rise. Waste management and reduction is another significant factor in increasing a company’s green thumb.

Push or Pull has been cemented in the industry as a frontrunner in the development of sustainable designer door hardware. Their pull and entrance door handles are responsibly sourced from Australian timber and crafted with precision to last 100 years; that’s something you won’t find on a poorly produced brass knob.

Where Sustainability and Longevity Converge

In addition to fine craftsmanship, we know the climate clock is ticking and ensure excess materials are meticulously selected and repurposed accordingly. Therefore, ensuring not only the invaluable quality clients have come to expect, but also lending a hand in curbing the crisis.

Beyond the environmental elements, the structure of a product is fundamental in guaranteeing its longevity. Most pull door handles are outsourced using cheaply manufactured materials such as bronze or aluminum alloy. Timber pull door handles, being of natural composition, have been proven to last a lifetime. Manufactured and finished with care and precision, Australian timber provides more durability than common alloy-based products that are currently available.

Freshly sourced wood is more subject to fluctuations in sturdiness due to the changing elements. Reclaimed wood, due to its past exposure, has aged in a manner that provides durability against increased levels of humidity. Reclaimed wood is also more dense than newly manufactured timber. That is why they are the perfect choice for entrance door handles. You can curate the look you want without losing out on longevity. Even in humid environments, reclaimed wood is Push or Pull’s way to provide designer door handles that stand the test of time.

More than Meets the Eye

Sustainability also transcends the environment. Reclaimed timber is a great way to preserve history. Sourced from within, repurposed materials can champion the rich history of your nation by placing a piece of generations past as a part of your journey through life.

Our utilization of repurposed timber allows its architectural handles to be unique, with no one being identical to another. That character can make your home or business stand out from the crowd as a way to further express your personality and interests.

The impact on the environment paired with first-class durability allows for confidence in the longevity of the client’s product and the planet. Plus, the myriad of styles is a testament to why homeowners and businesses alike are using designer door handles to enhance their surroundings.

A Recap

The environmental concerns surrounding our climate are enough for anybody to take a deeper interest in the pursuit of sustainability. Limiting the impact through a product’s life cycle as well as repurposing as much of the core material as possible can be a real game changer in the reduction of your carbon footprint.

The longevity garnered from repurposed timber will also extend the life of your products – such as entrance door handles – to ensure they stay in like-new condition for generations. Those same materials also contribute to the style of your home by providing an unparalleled uniqueness which is exaggerated down to the slightest details.

Push or Pull takes pride in its contributions to sustainability and clients. The pull door handles and other products provide a one-of-a-kind experience tailored to each client’s needs.
