Arrow Sheds Commitment to the Environment
At the heart of every Arrow Shed is an efficient and environmentally conscious manufacturing process.
In order to manufacture reliable and great looking sheds, carports and outdoor steel products; our quality steel undergoes a special treatment process to deter corrosion and break down over time, and a final coat of paint to make them look great. The result is a nice looking storage unit that’s reliable enough to last year after year, and takes on tough weather.
At the center of this process is a commitment to reducing emissions, converting and reusing energy and treating water so it can be recycled. As a result, we’ve made the treatment of our steel as efficient as possible – so much so that in 2011 we were awarded the Environmental Stewardship Award by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for our outstanding contribution to the local community and our commitment to sustainability in our manufacturing process.
Arrow Sheds Green Initiatives
Clean Air Commitment
The Arrow Sheds New Jersey manufacturing facility uses an RTO Process – Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer – to clean air post treatment and painting. This intense air filtration process removes toxic VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) that are harmful to our atmosphere and runs this air through high temperatures. The result? 98.7% of all harmful VOC’s are eliminated as air leaves the RTO exhaust system.
98.7% of all harmful VOC’s are eliminated for air that’s cleaner – better for your health, and better for the environment.
We Run on Recycled Energy
Our New Jersey facility requires minimum natural gas to operate and uses high efficiency electrical motors to reduce electrical consumption. A portion of our manufacturing facility also runs on a steam to liquid heat exchange to operate. Before releasing exhaust into the atmosphere, our exhaust stack heat is converted to low-pressure steam that generates heat that is then used to operate equipment throughout the plant.

We Have Our Own On-Site Waste Water Treatment Plant
We clean and reuse the water we use to manufacture our products. All water discharged to our local sewage authority has been thoroughly treated and neutralized to stay within the EPA and DEP’s strict parameters.
