For five generations, the dedicated New England craftsmen of Whitney Brothers Educational Furniture have produced safe, sturdy, innovatively designed toys, furniture, and storage systems that have withstood the test of time. Today, Whitney Brothers products are found in schools, daycare centers, Headstart facilities, and private homes throughout North America.
The smooth, rounded edges of the hardwoods and veneers used in Whitney Brothers furniture employ the strongest woodworking joints and are finished by hand. Extra-wide spaces between doors and frames, and full-length continuous hinges, prevent little fingers from getting pinched. State-of-the-art finishes are made in the USA and meet the most stringent safety requirements. Special care is also given to ensure that all small parts such as knobs, handles, hooks, magnets, and moving parts are smooth, rounded, and firmly attached to prevent breaking free under rigorous use.
Long before Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and established new standards for children’s products, Whitney Brothers had set its own set of strict safety guidelines. Because the company is not only a business, but a group of parents and grandparents whose love of children demands uncompromising attention to all aspects of safety, every product must pass a 5-point safety inspection that far exeeds CPSIA standards before it is shipped to a customer.
Every Whitney Brothers product carries the prestigious Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certification™ and the more stringent Greenguard Children & SchoolsSM certification. Every Whitney Brothers product also carries a lifetime warranty.
