Greenguard Air Quality Certificate
Remember to request GREENGUARD Certified vinyl wall coverings on your next Movable Wall Systems project from Partition Systems.
What is the Greenguard Certification Program?
The GREENGUARD Certification Program (formerly known as GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification) gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors. Achieving GREENGUARD Certification gives credence to manufacturers’ sustainability claims, backing them with empirical scientific data from an unbiased, third-party organization.
What is VOC?
Volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from building materials and other sources. When VOC emissions are reduced, overall indoor air quality is improved. One way to improve indoor air quality is to specify a wall system that uses low-VOC emission products such as GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified vinyl wall coverings.
Does Partitions Systems offer GREENGUARD?
Partition Systems manufactures movable and re-usable wall systems that includes a wide variety of vinyl wall coverings offered by Omnova Solutions Inc. Many of these vinyl wall coverings have the GREENGUARD Certification, and are available in a wide variety of colours.
GREENGUARD Certified products are part of the LEED-CI standards set used by the United States General Building Code. Therefore, specifying GREENGUARD vinyl wall coverings by Omnova on panels manufactured by Partition Systems is a “step in the right direction” towards LEED accreditation.
GREENGUARD Certified vinyl wall coverings from Omnova use specialized processes, vinyl formulations, and inks that have been re-engineered to reduce or neutralize materials that can be a source of VOC’s.
Omnova products are tested regularly by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute to ensure that their products continue to achieve low VOC-emission standards. Further information is available at Omnova.com, and Greenguard.org.
