GREENFLOORS COMMERCIAL CARPETS AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY

 
All GreenFloors commercial carpet are certified by the CRI Green Label indoor air quality carpet testing program for volatile organic compounds (VOC)'s.

The CRI Green Label sets the standard to ensure that the consumer is purchasing the lowest emitting interior products on the market.

"Green Label" Testing Program - Carpet Criteria

To identify carpet products that are truly low-VOC, CRI has established a labeling program. The CRI Indoor Air Quality Carpet Testing Program green and white logo     informs the consumer that the product type has been tested by an independent laboratory and has met the criteria for very low emissions.

 The carpet sample is tested for chemical emissions by Air Quality Sciences, an Atlanta-based, independent laboratory using the latest, most up-to-date, dynamic environmental chamber technology. The test methodology was developed by consensus during an official dialogue with the EPA and has been adopted by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) as D 5116 Guide for Small-Scale Environmental Chamber Determinations of Organic Emissions from Indoor Materials/Products.

 Since the inception of the program in 1992, the industry has made substantial reductions in the levels of TVOCs, as well as reductions in 4-phenylcyclohexene (4-PC), the compound most associated with "new carpet odor."

 The carpet manufacturer is allowed to use the CRI/IAQ Carpet Testing Program label for that specific product type if the test result does not exceed the stated emission criteria. The product type number on the label identifies the manufacturer of the carpet and tells the buyer that the manufacturer has produced a product that meets the criteria for low emissions. Products are re-tested quarterly to monitor continued compliance with the test program requirements. Consumers can feel confident in selecting a carpet bearing the CRI Indoor Air Quality label. The label is assurance that the product is a responsible, low-emitting carpet.

 The current criteria for the program are based on a maximum emission factor measured in mg/m ∙hr as follows:

Total Volatile Organic Compounds  0.5 

4-PC (4-Phenylcyclohexene) 0.05
Formaldehyde (to prove that none is used) 0.05
Styrene 0.4
