Bretford Manufacturing announced that more of its laminate tables, carts, and accessories are Greenguard Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Certified by the Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI). The newly approved models achieved the Greenguard standard for low-emitting products and for the Children & Schools product certification program.
With these additions, a total of 88 Bretford products bear the Greenguard logo and can be specified to help commercial facilities achieve LEED points, said company officials.
"We take the safety of our products very seriously, especially those used in educational facilities where children are present," said Tad Petrick, director of marketing and product development for Bretford Manufacturing, in a statement. "We continue to have our furniture models tested and certified so that we may contribute to healthy learning and working environments. At the same time, the certifications give our architects, designers, and facility managers the ability to specify Bretford for their LEED projects."
Elevated levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contribute to poor indoor air quality and can cause short- and long-term health issues, from asthma and allergies to neurological and respiratory disease. Greenguard Certified products reportedly show significant reduction in both the individual chemicals emitting from their products and the overall amounts of chemicals being released.
Among the newly certified products are laminate versions of Bretford's RHOMBII training tables (Edge 16) and power systems, along with a range of technology carts that includes the TC Series Flat-Panel Carts, FP Series Cabinet and Freestanding Carts, FPBBUL Carts, and several of the company's traditional AV, data projector, and adjustable-height carts.
