Dezignatek is reducing waste in its production area by making door samples using spare space on its thermoform presses when it makes client orders.
While the door sample colour may change randomly, designers and joiners will receive the exact door profile they need and can use a colour chip to help match with other decor surfaces or interior finishes. Any waste vinyl left over from pressing is sent off to be recycled into gumboots and jandals. Small changes are helping to make a big impact on waste as Dezignatek and its parent company NZ Panels Group work towards a sustainability target of becoming carbon-negative.
Colour samples are available in chip form and can be ordered via the website at no charge to anyone. Given the size and cost of door samples, these are only made available to designers and joiners. Thermoformed A5 colour blocks are also available on top selling or newer colours.
