The OFFICE employs no particle board . Particle Board tends to fracture easily, self-destructs when exposed to moisture, and is not biodegradable. Particle board, also known as "wood solids" or "architectural board", while commonly used in the manufacture of decorative furniture, has insufficient durability to qualify for construction of The OFFICE.
