Questions about the production

Q: Which kind of sheet material is used by the manufacturer?

A: Particleboards coated with plastics are not recommendable, as case plasticizer and glue can transpire and in case of fire toxic fumes can be produced. Additionally, the disposal can cause problems.
Schardt is using sheet material coated with melamine. This is biologically degradable, it can be recycled and it is uncritical for your child’s health.

Q: Which connection of the furniture items is used by the manufacturer?

A: Screw connections are cheap; however, they cannot be fixed again strongly after a furniture item has been e.g. disassembled after a house moving.
What concerns sheet material Schardt is using Excenter-connections, as these can be retightened and they guarantee a strong foothold when the furniture was reassembled.

Q: Are all corners and edges rounded?

A: Rounded edges are a real feature for good quality. They optically convey a high value and in case of a collision with a furniture item it is definitely not as painful as if you collide with a sharp edge.

Q: Which varnishes are used?

A: Exclusively water varnish, which is permitted for the manufacture of toys, should be used. Schardt only uses water varnishes that correspond to the requirements of the DIN EN 71-3 safeties of toys.
