Beware of MDF furniture

We thought it would be a good idea to highlight the dangers of purchasing made to measure furniture using MDF as recently explained in this Guardian article click here. It highlights the high levels and dangers of formaldehyde and the wider problem of formaldehyde emissions in homes going largely uninvestigated. “MDF is being installed in thousands of UK homes every year, and you have to wonder how many other people are being exposed to carcinogenic fumes,” says Logan. The article does make you think it may not be regulated properly but you will be pleased to hear we don’t use any MDF in our shelving system.
