Noble Fidelity, LLC goes GREEN

FIRST LOUDSPEAKER COMPANY in NORTH AMERICA to be RoHS COMPLIANT

Carson City, Nevada, December, 2006

NOBLE FIDELITY, LLC a manufacturer of High Fidelity Residential In-Wall & In-Ceiling Loudspeakers for Home Theater and Whole House Audio is the first in North America to be RoHS compliant — all models. (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)

The RoHS Directive bans the placing on the European Union (EU) market new electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) containing more than agreed upon maximum levels of Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Hexavalent Chromium, Polybrominated Biphenyl and Polybrominated Diphenyl Ether effective July 1st 2006.

Many U.S. States are presently legislating for pollution reforms pursuant to RoHS; California seems to be leading the charge with legislation in play that will ban the sale of certain electronic devices that contain violating levels of Lead, Mercury, Cadmium and Hexavalent Chromium. Visit the State of California website: http://www.ca.gov/state/portal/myca_homepage.jsp a search for “RoHS” will return several California State articles concerning pollution & hazardous waste matters.
