Finishes Contribute to GREENGUARD Certification for Cabinetry

Monday, June 7, 2010

Comment | More

The use of water-borne coatings and stains figured in GREENGUARD Environmental Institute indoor air-quality certification of kitchen and bath cabinetry manufactured by Executive Cabinetry LLC.

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute announced that Executive Cabinetry is the first residential kitchen and bath cabinet manufacturer to earn GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification and GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification for the company’s wood cabinetry.

The institute also said several Executive Cabinetry products, including wood stains and paints, have earned GREENGUARD Children & Schools certification. The institute said the Children & Schools certification constitutes the highest level of indoor air-quality certification.

GREENGUARD said the residential wood cabinets are the first products of their kind to pass the rigorous chemical emissions tests required to earn certification. “This means that the cabinets meet some of the world's most stringent requisites for low chemical emissions and contribute to a healthier, more sustainable residential indoor environment,” the institute said.

Executive Cabinetry products earning Children & Schools Certification include wood stains, paints (except the Sagamore Collection), foil, glazes, veneers, and wood.

GREENGUARD said Executive Cabinetry’s EcoFriendly™ cabinetry helps green building and design professionals qualify for points in the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® Building Rating System and the National Association of Homebuilders' National Green Building Standard.

In the testing of chemical emissions, GREENGUARD said a residential model and air-change rate (as described in the GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Standard for Buildings Materials, Finishes, and Furnishings) were used to account for the cabinetry's use in a home environment.

Executive Cabinetry, based in Simposonville, S.C., says it uses only waterborne paints and stains for its EcoFriendly cabinetry. The products are reported to emit no VOCs, formaldehyde, or hazardous air pollutants (HAPS). The company says the cabinetry can contribute to LEED credit points for Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) and MR (Materials Resources).

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is a third-party organization that certifies products and materials for low chemical emissions. More information: www.greenguard.org.
