Zeeland, MI (PRWEB) November 8, 2010
Symbiote, Inc. has earned GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification® from the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) for its UltraFrame lab system and height adjustable tables. The Michigan based manufacturer of technical furniture strives to use low-emitting materials for fabrication of all product lines. “Specifying GREENGUARD Certified products is important in managing the overall indoor air quality of any environment. Adults spend nearly 90% of their time indoors, where pollutant levels can be two to five times higher than outdoor air. Since most laboratory research customers are managing healthcare issues, the quality of air they breath is significant. Symbiote leads the way toward healthier lab environments as the foremost technical furniture provider to earn GREENGUARD Certification for its products.
The GREENGUARD Certification mark is among the most coveted and credible “green product labels.” It relies on comprehensive third-party standards and is further validated by independent testing and verification. GREENGUARD Certified products are recognized in today’s green, high-performance buildings. In meeting GEI’s stringent indoor air quality standards, Symbiote joins an elite group of companies, including 3M, BASF, Lenovo, Owens Corning, Herman Miller, among others, that have earned GREENGUARD Certification.”
The GEI aims to protect human health and improve quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people’s exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by a number of “green” building programs, including the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) LEED® program. An online guide of certified products is available at http://www.greenguard.org.
