We proactively look for ways to improve health and safety in the workplace. Ensuring employees and those that work with us wellbeing is of the utmost of importance.

It is the company objective to deliver our projects in a safe manner without risk to the health and safety of any employee, sub-contractor or any other person that may be affected by our acts or omissions.
In line with company policy, our sites are audited by our retained external safety consultant, to review work activities, risk assessment and welfare standards meet the requirements of company policy, the Construction, (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and all other health and safety related legislation.
Corporate Social Responsibility is more than a statement...
We are committed to making smart decisions to protect the environment and manage our environmental impact responsibly. Our policies ensure that we rigorously adhere to the highest standards in ethical behaviour, environmental sustainability, health & safety and more.
We work with environmental experts that challenge conventional methods of waste disposal. We endeavour to provide total waste management and strategic support to improve your corporate social responsibility and sustainability performance. Our experts advise and support you to ensure you fulfil all your obligations under BREEAM. They’ll also coordinate and manage waste reduction via a national supply chain of specialist recycling facilities and, wherever possible, we aim to reuse. The approach is fully aligned with the industry Waste Hierarchy staged process of how waste should be managed.
Our Green Policy
Matrix Interiors supplies IVM products that use EPPS panels for 90% of its production, which contain just half the percentage of formaldehyde emissions permitted by current legislation. Emissions from formaldehyde are one of the most common slow-release interior pollutants that can contaminate both domestic and the working environment. That is, all of the places we frequent the most… and longest. Formaldehyde is a devious and invisible enemy.
We also use environmentally certified panels according to the ISO standards.
The FSC brand identifies products containing wood from certified forests, that is, forests managed in a correct and responsible manner, in line with rigorous environmental, social and economic standards.
Protecting your health is the main, but not the only reason that IVM uses virgin wood panels with the EPPS mark. Virgin wood panels contain a greater percentage of fibres, with positive effect on the mechanics of the finished product. It means:
Clear aesthetic quality
Better grip for screws, hinges and joints
Better wear resistance over time
Greater resistance to weight and impact
That’s why the quality of materials ensures long term reliability of products.
Our products also use paper weighing 120g/m2 for all covers, double that used to cover a standard panel. This choice means: an extremely natural feel; greater resistance to wear; and visible aesthetic quality.
