Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) November 14, 2007
Kurt Amico, President of MidCity Office Furniture announced today that their leading manufacturer, Allsteel has become the first major contract office furniture manufacturer to have its entire product line of seating, systems, desking, table and storage products achieve SCS (Scientific Certification Systems) Indoor Advantage™ certification. SCS, a leading independent, third-party auditing and standards development firm for environmental and sustainability claims, certifies environmental achievement in indoor air quality for office furniture systems, components and seating.
Allsteel chose SCS to certify its products for low emissions because its program tests for individual product components in addition to those of fully assembled products. The SCS Indoor Advantage Gold certification is the highest SCS certification level available. Certification includes building materials, paint, and office and classroom systems, components and seating. This level of certification meets North America's strictest indoor air emission criteria including: CHPS 01350 - California's Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Specifications for Open Panel Office Furniture; and BIFMA's Furniture Emissions Standards M-7.1 and X-7.1. It also meets the LEED-CI EQ 4.5 credit for office furniture as well as LEED EQ 4.1, 4.2 and 4.4 for other green products.
