Safety

All Robinson Willey products conform to relevant safety standards, however, during use, parts of the casing become hot. Therefore if aged or inform persons or young children are left unsupervised in the vicinity of the heater, a suitable guard is recommended as is normal with many types of heating appliances in similar circumstances, to ensure contact with the heater is avoided and objects cannot be inserted into the product. Gas and electric fires should never be covered or positioned where objects may fall onto them.

FSC ® Certification  

We are delighted to advise that the RW range of electric suites and fire surrounds are FSC® certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council® – a non-governmental organisation that is dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. With immediate effect, these products will proudly bear The Forest Stewardship Council® “tick tree” logo that guarantees that the trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.

Not only does this latest development demonstrate that we are committed to using sustainable materials, it means that when you source these products, you can do so with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests.

The FSC® system includes a certified chain of custody that tracks the timber through every stage in the supply chain from the forest to the final user. This is monitored through the invoicing process, and the final label on the product has a code that confirms that the item is genuinely FSC®. Naturally, we are proud to provide our customers with assurance of the legality of timber used in our latest timber products.

FSC® Facts

  • FSC® stands for the Forest Stewardship Council®
  • The FSC® is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.
