GREENGUARD & GREENGUARD GOLD Certification

We are committed to upholding and improving our GREENGUARD Certification. Ensuring that our products have zero to low chemical emissions limits. Our products are scientifically tested for prolonged exposure in environmental chambers to meet rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates.

The GREENGUARD Gold Certification (formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification) offers even stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
