HomeCorkUSFloors cork gains Greenguard certification

Dalton—Greenguard Children & Schools certification has been awarded to USFloors’ Natural Cork floating floors and its entry level Ecocork floating floors. In addition to the same certification on its Natural Bamboo collection, USFloors claims to be the only flooring supplier with Children & Schools certified cork and bamboo in its product portfolio.

“Having our core products of cork and bamboo flooring certified to Greenguard’s Children & Schools standard exemplifies our ongoing commitment to providing the most environmentally responsible flooring products to our customers and consumer,” said Philippe Erramuzpe, COO.

The standard screens products for more than 10,000 VOCs and includes follow-up testing to maintain certification. Standards for testing are set by the Greenguard Environmental Institute and render eligibility for a multitude of LEED credits from the U.S. Green Building Council, including those for low-emitting materials in flooring systems.
