Certifications and Standards
Every hardwood panel that we make is third-party verified for EPA TSCA Title VI and CARB compliance, making our products available for sale in states with the most stringent emission restrictions. With a consistent track record of acing indoor air quality tests for formaldehyde emissions, we were granted this certification. Upon renewal, we made another leap in the right direction by extending the certification to include products with HDF core materials.
As a family business, the safety of your family and our employees is of the utmost importance. We are the only manufacturer who has achieved stringent EF 2012 Flooring Standard certification that speaks to the quality and repeatability of our manufacturing process.
Under the well-respected American National Standard for Engineered Wood Flooring, we were subject to internationally accredited third-party testing and inspection programs. This ensures a thorough assessment that demonstrates we have met each and every specification in the industry. Some considered factors within the HPVA Laboratories program include:
- Annual audits of quality control systems
- Inspection of manufacturing facilities
- Third-party product evaluations
- Accredited performance testing
Through meticulous, rigid testing of our flooring products to analyze dimensions and tolerance, formaldehyde emissions, glue bond delamination and more, we are granted this certification. By hitting the mark every time we are not only validating our products and process, but we are also able to continue to grow, innovate, and expand.
The respected industry organization, SCS Global, has also awarded us the Indoor Air Quality Certification at the Indoor Advantage Gold level. We achieved this after a rigid evaluation which verified our low VOC emissions for our hardwood flooring material. This furthers the solidity of our goal to remain sustainable and continue to produce the best floors for your home or business. Our efficiency of how we manufacture our product continues beyond the formal evaluation process. Even though it’s not required, we consistently evaluate our methods and floors to ensure we are sustaining the level of standard want to deliver to our customers.
