While we hold ourselves to high standards for design and style, our standards for safety are even higher. Nursery Works is proud to be a part of The MDB Family, which has been producing nursery furniture products since 1989. Each Nursery Works crib goes through the rigorous third party testing process established by our parent company, which exceeds ASTM/CPSC standards.

Safe and Renewable Materials

With each product Nursery Works strives to explore new materials and processes, including non-toxic, recyclable, acrylic; CNC-milled, solid radiata pine; 24k gold-plated aluminum; and laser-cut, powder coated stainless steel. Our white oak and black walnut are sourced from sustainably-managed, American forests.

When construction requires the use of medium density fiberboard (MDF), Nursery Works is Carb II Compliant. While others may use fiberboard that leaks anywhere from 9 mg to 39 mg per 100 grams of board, Nursery Works only uses MDF which releases less than 0.5 mg per liter.

Rocker legs are made of ash hardwood and upholstered with 100% cotton or a poly-cotton woven blend. The foam used is Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs) free.

Finish, Lacquers, Glues and Dyes

Nursery Works uses low-VOC finishes, lacquers and glues. The dyes we use are always formaldehyde-free and compliant to CPSC standards. Our products are tested to governmental standards on a quarterly basis and are certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). In addition, our products are air-chamber tested to examine and eliminate toxic materials.

  • Our products are all formaldehyde and lead safe; the formaldehyde level for all of our furniture is undetectable.
  • Paint is considered safe when it has toxic materials under 300 parts per million (ppm). In order for a company to claim low toxicity, it must have no more than 90 ppm. Nursery Works products come in at less than 10ppm.
  • We perform annual paint tests in order to maintain consistent quality, exceeding JPMA regulations.

CPSIA Section 101

Testing and Quality Control

  • All our products are sent to a 3rd party CPSC-certified lab for testing to ensure compliance with ASTM standards.
  • After JPMA-certification, 25% of our full-size crib models are tested quarterly to adhere to all guidelines and remain active participants of the JPMA Certification Program.
  • We perform annual paint tests to ensure consistent quality, exceeding JPMA regulations.
  • We have created our own rigorous quality control program to stay ahead of industry standards. A quality control team at our production site individually checks and hand packs each piece to ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship before products leave our factory doors. Items are inspected and assembled again by another team upon arrival in the US.

Full-Size Cribs

  • Mattress supports are ventilated to ensure safe sleep and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
  • Metal inserts with lock washers and self-locking nuts are used, instead of wood screws.
  • After JPMA-certification, 25% of our full-size crib models are tested quarterly to adhere to all guidelines and remain active participants of the JPMA Certification Program.

Tips

  • Stop using our full-size cribs when your child begins to climb or reaches 35"
