The best way to protect the environment is to build products that last, reducing the need for replacement. At Medallion we believe that starts with selecting and constructing cabinets and accessories with the right materials, and producing products in facilities that are designed to generate as little waste as possible. All Medallion cabinets are environmentally kind, built with enduring, natural materials that stand the test of time. Feel good about your home being a part of the solution, and not contributing to the problem.

Whether you’re striving to achieve LEED certification for a project, or you’re simply interested in practicing good environmental principles, Elkay, as a responsible manufacturer, utilizes sustainable processes that may contribute towards LEED certification points. Medallion may help your building or project achieve LEED certification by contributing towards credits in two areas: Materials and Resources and Regional Materials.
Medallion has chosen to make a difference with our products by partnering with suppliers to ensure continued environmental stewardship. We select materials manufactured to meet or surpass current regulatory requirements, including low formaldehyde emissions. We have substantially reduced our emissions by working in partnership with our finish suppliers to develop improved coatings and filtration systems.
Our paint curing ovens utilize the latest in computerized quartz light technology. The ovens only heat and cure the applied finish material which makes them 50 percent more efficient than conventional gas ovens. The oven bulbs have a 10-year life, or 20,000 hours.
All sawdust and wood shavings generated in our manufacturing process are siphoned through a filtration system, removing 99.99 percent of dust particles down to 10 microns in size. This practically eliminates any discharge of wood dust into the atmosphere and it returns warm air back into the factory, conserving energy. The air filtration system in our paint department removes 99.97 percent of particulate matter, keeping our air clean inside and out.
By deploying an innovative Cyclomix technology in our facilities, we've dramatically changed the way wood finishes are prepared for application by automatically mixing only what is needed and catalyzing the material just before being sprayed on the cabinets. Proven technology and accurate proportioning eliminates the need to estimate the amount of catalyzed material needed, and reduces waste by minimizing disposal of unused material at the end of the day.
