Where Sound meets Sustainability

We're designing for a cleaner, greener built environment
dbHarakekeSustainability Policy

Built for re-use

We’re leading the way with sustainable glue free systems of install.  With our innovative Ready-Clip system you can bid farewell to glues that emit VOC’s that damage indoor air quality an impact occupant wellbeing. Installation has never been this effortless, and spaces are ready for use immediately without any smell or health impacts.

Components are demountable allowing access to the wall or ceiling behind, with seamless and accurate placement every time. At end of tenancy, or when it’s time for a change, components can be removed without creating damage, contamination or waste.  Readily reused, or returned to dbsorb for recycling

Recycling and our products

Our materials are produced with up to 60% recycled content, and our commitment to a circular economy ensures that every panel is 100% recyclable at end of life and we can arrange to take back used panels (T&C apply)

Sustainability is an ongoing journey and as a business we are committed to moving from good-practice to best-practice to support a cradle-to-cradle circular economy.

We’re always experimenting with ways to keep our products circulating, and developing processes that minimise waste and energy at every step so this is a process of continuous improvement for the company and staff. We commit to issue an annual sustainability report to share our progress, what’s good and what we need to improve on.

All factory waste is recycled locally, shredded and turned into other recycled products.

Clever thinking

We carefully select products that are made only from safe materials – no harmful chemicals. We design and manufacture products with the best use of material (yield) in mind.

Make the choice that resonates with your values and enhances your surroundings.
