Baja brings comfortable elements of the home into the office. Its slender, sloping top accentuates the table’s graceful airiness, giving Baja an appropriate scale for casual or formal collaborative spaces. The top wraps around a slightly sloped hardwood edge for a seamless design that’s easy on the arms. The underside is a finished surface wrapped in a special resin to make it soft to the touch.

guidelines. With Nucraft, green is a given.
The information below details the environmental performance of Baja Tables as it relates to
upgrade ability, LEED credit qualification, and recovery options for legacy products.
FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. FSC was established in 1993 to establish
international forest management standards (known as the FSC Principles and Criteria) to assure
that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically
viable. Nucraft received a Chain of Custody Certification, which is awarded to companies that
process, manufacture and/or sell products made of certified wood that successfully complete
audits to ensure that the FSC-Certified raw material coming into the manufacturing process is
the same material going out to their customers as the finished product.
Most of Nucraft’s products that have wood content can be specified with the FSC option. FSC
Certification only affects the wood-based components of the product. Therefore, the core
material, lumber and veneer will be FSC-certified when the FSC option is specified. All other
materials (metal, glass, etc.) are not affected. Because availability will likely change over time,
please check with Nucraft Customer Service for updated species availability.
The Nucraft Chain of Custody Certification number is SCS-COC-001174. A copy of the
certificate can be downloaded from our web site at www.nucraft.com.

BIFMA Furniture Emissions Standard (FES)
Nucraft products are tested to the ANSI/BIFMA X7.1 Furniture Emissions Standard. A
voluntary national standard for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from office
furniture, the ANSI/BIFMA X7.1 was adopted by the U.S. Green Building Council as part of the
LEED for Commercial Interiors rating system for sustainable buildings. This standard is based
upon the combined experience of the office furniture industry, builds on all publicly available
chamber testing documentation, leverages the technical expertise of multiple laboratories and
follows the technical leadership of leading chamber emissions testing experts in North
California Air Resource Board (CARB) Compliance
All products manufactured by Nucraft comply with the California Air Resource Board (CARB)
regulation on the emissions of formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical found in many woodbased
furniture products. Effective January 1, 2009, all products sold, used or manufactured
for sale in California that contain hardwood plywood, particle board, medium density fiberboard
and thin medium density fiberboard must meet emissions limits specified in California Code of
Regulations, Title 17, 93120.2.
Nucraft designs and manufactures wood furniture to last, meaning it can withstand repeated
service, repair and handling, and has standardized product parts and components available
to facilitate maintenance, servicing, and reassembly.
The advantage of a natural material like wood is that it provides the option to refinish or
refurbish in order to extend the useful life of the product. In addition, many trim and base
options can be changed out to provide a renewed aesthetic.
If new product, however, is the right choice for you, Nucraft encourages customers to either
donate their legacy products to a charitable organization such as ANEW or take advantage of
Nucraft’s offering to have your furniture picked up and delivered to its facilities for repurposing.
Nucraft’s competitive freight rates help make this an attractive option for customers.
Nucraft’s strategy is to be innovative within the boundaries of utilizing materials that can be
reused or recycled. Below is a guide to the typical materials used on Nucraft’s legacy products:
