The single largest area of improvement
we could make with TruckVault products was in the choice of what plywood
products we decided to use. After extensive research we chose to work
with a lighter, sustainably harvested, material called Sande Lite; a
product that is CARB (California Air Resource Board) compliant and
carries the strictest emission certification to be found in the US! The
use of Sande Light also lightened up our products by 30% which saved on
fuel costs in shipping and eventually helps save on fuel costs for
consumers once their TruckVault is installed in their vehicles.
Our carpet, purchased from Rontex
America, Inc., is made from post consumer content-recycled materials
which reduces landfill quantities of polyester polymers. Added benefits
of Rontex carpeting are that it will not mold, mildew or rot. It also
resists most stains, will not ravel or fray and it reduces vibration
(provides sound dampening) while also reducing harmful moisture
condensation. In addition our carpet glue, made by Roberts Adhesives, is
GreenGuard certified to be environmentally friendly.
All of our hardware including rollers,
casters, handles, locks, etc. are all made of recyclable metals and
Our rubber mat material from RB rubber
is made of 97% recycled rubber and easily cleans up with soap and water.
RAILS & METAL
Our aluminum tie down rails, tie down
clamps and iron U-channel is all recyclable material.
