CARB stands for California Air Resources Board, also known as Air Resources Board (ARB). It is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency. It was established in 1967 with the purpose of maintaining and improving air quality, and researching causes and solutions of air pollution. CARB's mandates, such as CARB 2 compliant MDF, are strict and usually are considered the standard across the United States.
What is CARB Phase 2 Compliant?
CARB Phase 1 and Phase 2 are a part of California's Composite Wood Products Regulation (CWP Regulation), which took effect in 2009 with Phase 1. The regulation has to do with reducing formaldehyde emissions from composite wood products, hardwood plywood, particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF). In the 2009 rollout of the CARB's Airborne Toxic Control Measure (ATCM), formaldehyde emissions were capped at .08 parts per million (ppm). CARB Phase 2 went into effect in 2010 and has much lower formaldehyde emissions than the previous phase; set at .05 ppm. A main reason why the CARB ATCM is the strictest air quality measure is because it CAPS emissions levels. Other air quality standards are averages.
Union Custom Color
Orders ship in 6 to 12 weeks
The Union collection features a classic, full overlay design but also adds a slightly modern touch with its recessed door and drawer panels. The cabinets come standard with soft close drawers and doors, and quality isn't forgotten with a plywood box construction. Custom color samples will ship in 3-4 weeks and are highly recommended. Please note that if you decide to purchase your cabinets in the same color as your custom color sample, you will not have to pay another $250 color fee, that is only paid once.
Please note that items from pre-assembled collections are not able to be returned, for more information, please see our FAQ page. We strongly encourage all customers to order a refundable sample door prior to purchasing.

The cabinet depth measurement listed is the depth from the front of the face frame to the back of the cabinet, and does not include the cabinet door depth.
Cabinet specs are subject to change without notice. *Cabinet measurements are typically converted from metric to inches and manufacturers will commonly round up to the nearest 1/4 inch. This can cause a measurement to be off by a fraction of an inch (less than 1/4") which is within normal industry standards*
