As an independent non-profit organization, the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) awards certificates that are among the most renowned and demanding in the world for indoor air quality by measuring the emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from products installed in a sterile room.
Serious studies show that poor quality of indoor air may be detrimental to health: risks of asthma and allergies, irritations of all kinds (eyes, nose, etc.), difficulties in concentrating, tiredness, or even in an increase in the risk of cancer......
Therefore all GREENGUARD certified products (furniture, floor coverings, bedding, insulation, textiles, general building materials, adhesives and mastics, cleaning systems, paints, etc.) are included in a rigorous programme of measurements of Volatile Organic Compound emissions.
The award of this double certification in 2008 (GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® + GREENGUARD Children & School) is a deliberate policy pursued by Mermet which guarantees that the Sunscreen® fabrics display controlled, impeccable quality for use on any kind of site (office buildings, commercial premises, residences, schools).
Re-evaluated and updated every year on the basis of new tests, the GREENGUARD certificate guarantees all users of Mermet® fabrics real safety.
Already granted the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (Europe) labels, and entered in the Ecospecifier (Australia) environmental product database, Mermet is demonstrating that health and the environment are the central focus of the company's development.
