Crossville products pre-approved for CHPS

Home Commercial Crossville products pre-approved for CHPS

CHPSCrossville, Tenn.—Crossville-produced tile, porcelain tile panels and porcelain slab products have received pre-approved status through the Collaborative for High Performing Schools (CHPS). CHPS Pre-Approved products simplify the process of identifying, specifying and documenting building products that meet rigorous health and environmental standards.

Founded in 1999, the initiative began as a collaboration of California’s major utilities to address energy efficiency in schools. Soon after, the organization said it quickly expanded to address all aspects of school design, construction and operation. CHPS Pre-Approved products meet one or more of the following criteria: low emitting materials, recycled content, environmental product declaration and/or material health disclosures (declare label and equivalent disclosures).

“With Pre-Approved status, Crossville products can be specified for new school designs and immediately meet the Collaborative for High Performing School requirements,” explained Noah Chitty, director of technical services, Crossville. “Through our industry-leading efforts in sustainability and transparency, Crossville products align with the mission of the CHPS to positively impact designs in K-12 educational facilities throughout the country.”
