What is GreenGuard
The health and safety of our customers is something we deeply care about. We strive to provide products that are affordable and high in quality, but we also want to make sure they are safe to use over time. Our GreenGuard-certified products minimize the amount of indoor air pollution emitted by furniture, creating a safer and cleaner atmosphere for your office or home.
Formaldehyde and VOCs in the Manufacturing Process
Formaldehyde and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals found in adhesives and finishes that are used for laminate products, such as furniture and flooring, during the manufacturing process. At room temperature, these chemicals become gasses that are emitted into the air, affecting your indoor air quality. This results in irritants that can cause headaches, dizziness, and more. Long term exposure can lead to more severe illnesses.
Due to the potential dangers of Formaldehyde and VOCs can cause at high concentrations, it has become an important issue within the furniture industry, especially when it comes to laminate finishes.
With GreenGuard, you can rest assured knowing that our certified products have been scientifically tested and proven to meet some of the highest standards of chemical emissions to reduce exposure and indoor air pollution for the safety of you, your team and your workspace.
Our large selection of GREENGUARD certified office furniture solutions can be shopped online or in store at one of our 12 locations across Canada.
