Go Green

Spacesaver Sustainability Website

Spacesaver Corporation creates products that inspire smarter, more responsible uses of space. At Axiom, Inc. and  with our key vendor partner Spacesaver, we are committed to protecting the environment and giving back to our global community through environmentally sound practices and manufacturing. We don't just create space saving solutions, we create space to breath.

To protect the environment, Spacesaver has implemented dozens of "green" measures.  Among them are:

Recycled Water

Spacesaver uses recycled water to thoroughly clean its products before painting.  This solvent-free process, called aqueous degreasing, along with strict quality control, prevents greenhouse emissions and eliminates heavy metals from wastewater.  The process is so effective that products need only be painted with a single coat to meet or exceed industry standards.

Powder-Coat Painting

A solvent-free process, Spacesaver's powder-coat painting process is also highly efficient.  The powdered paint is confined and reclaimed to minimize waste.  Ninety-seven percent of the paint ends up on the product.  Powder-coat paint, which requires no primer, also smoothes metallic "burrs" eliminating the need for grinding or filing.

Lean Manufacturing

Products are manufactured with a minimal number of parts, making them easy to assemble and environmentally responsible.  Spacesaver continually looks for ways to minimize wasted motion, time, energy and resources from every step in the manufacturing process.  The company regularly updates our business and production practices, keeping in step with advances in technology and new developments in health and environmental standards.

Recycling

In addition to recycling water whenever possible, Spacesaver recycles steel and aluminum.  Steel and aluminum with recycled content is used whenever possible.  In addition, we recently implemented a program to reduce the amount of corrugated cardboard used for packing and shipping purposes.

Brownout Participation

During heavy-use periods, Spacesaver participates in electrical "brownouts" to decrease the necessity for building new power plants.
