Doellken has been awarded the Greenguard Gold certificate, the most stringent certificate to test products for emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
The company’s PVC, ABS, and 3D acrylic Edgebanding products have been independently tested meeting one of the most rigorous chemical emission standards in the world!
Greenguard Gold – The Highest Standard
The Greenguard Gold Standard includes specialized requirements that address the unique sensitivity of infants and children in daycares, schools and other sensitive environments. Doellken Edgebanding meets the stringent requirements of Greenguard Gold.
Greenguard Environmental Institute
The Greenguard Environmental Institute is an industry-independent, not-for-profit organization that oversees the Greenguard Certification programs. As an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer, GEI establishes acceptable product standards for building materials, interior furnishings, cleaners, electronics and children’s products.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Rating Systems are developed by the USGBC committees, in adherence with the USGBC policies and procedures guiding the development and maintenance of rating systems. It is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission and sustainable buildings.
Individual products and materials used in buildings are not certified. However, Doellken’s Edgebanding can be used as a product on Greenguard-certified furniture to obtain a LEED credit for Low Emitting Furniture and improved indoor air quality.
