Did you know you spend more than 90 percent of your time indoors where you’re exposed to pollution levels up to 1,000 times higher than those outdoors? Products that release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) contribute to allergies, asthma, reproductive problems and cancer. And, the ensuing economic impact on employee health and productivity is estimated to be “tens of billions of dollars per year,” according to the EPA.
Bevco understands the importance of creating products that do not contribute to poor indoor air quality. The prominent manufacturer of ergonomic seating solutions recently achieved the UL’s GREENGUARD Gold Certification for select seating products. The third-party certification program requires products to undergo testing for thousands of VOCs; only those meeting the UL’s stringent chemical emission limits achieve GREENGUARD Gold Certification.
In addition to limiting emissions of over 360 VOCs and total chemical emissions, GREENGUARD Gold Certified products must also comply with requirements of the State of California’s Department of Public Health. All-Spec carries a number of GREENGUARD certified chairs from Bevco, so you too can reach for the gold when you reach for the green.
