As we become increasingly environmentally conscious, many furniture joineries recognise the significance of adopting sustainable practices to reduce their ecological footprint. Indeed, the furniture industry is under pressure to innovate and adopt eco-conscious practices in line with consumers’ growing preference for environmentally-friendly options.
One area that holds significant potential for positive change is the integration of sustainable ductwork solutions in a furniture joinery. Here, Nordfab – a leading manufacturer of ductwork components for process ventilation and dust control – speaks on how to efficiently remove dust and other particles from the workplace, while minimising the environmental impact of industrial operations.
Materials matter – a shift towards sustainable choices
Nordfab’s journey towards sustainability is rooted in its core values. The company understands that modern industrial operations must align with environmentally responsible practices to ensure a healthier future for businesses and the planet.
Nordfab’s ducting components are primarily crafted from galvanised and stainless steel, which are highly recyclable materials. These materials not only reduce the carbon footprint, but also contribute to the circular economy by promoting the reuse and recycling of resources.
Reuse and Adaptability
There are many different ductwork systems to choose from and Nordfab can’t stress enough the importance of considering ducting components that can easily be dismantled, relocated, and reused. Quick-Fit is a clip-together modular ductwork system that can easily be installed without the need for rivets, nuts, bolts or welding.
Quick-Fit ducting components enable reuse and reconfiguration, reducing the need for new materials and installations when adapting to changing production needs, hence providing one of the lowest life cycle costs of any ducting product on the market.

Enhanced durability and longevity
In order to minimise dust in the workplace, it is important for any joinery to install an efficient dust extraction system. The use of high-quality, sustainable materials ensures that the ducting components used for the dust extraction system can withstand the test of time, reducing the need for frequent replacements and repairs.
The durability of Nordfab’s ducting components ensures a longer lifespan, reducing the frequency of replacements and conserving resources over time.
Energy-efficient manufacturing processes
Sustainable ducting manufacturers are adopting advanced technologies that minimise energy consumption. Nordfab’s Quick-Fit ducting system, with its optimised airflow and leak-free design, helps joineries reduce their energy consumption by promoting efficient air distribution and minimising pressure drop. Nordfab’s ducting components enable systems to operate at peak performance, minimising energy wastage, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Nordfab’s commitment to sustainability through its recyclable materials, energy-efficient processes, and green ducting solutions, has positioned it as a leader in promoting eco-friendly practices within the industrial sector.
By adopting Nordfab’s sustainable ducting solutions, furniture joineries can enhance their operational efficiency and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.
