Interiors & Sources Highlights NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Standardby  TRI-KES 

September 5, 2012 |

Did you read Interior & Sources’ recent article on the Sustainability Wallcovering Standard NSF/ANSI 342 in the August issue? It talks about how LSI Wallcovering, manufacturer of our Cirqa and Versa wallcovering brands, has become the first manufacturer to partner with distributors to earn NSF/ANSI 342 product certification. The article also mentions that last year TRI-KES was the first company to qualify for NSF/ANSI 342. We are thrilled LSI is now qualified because that means together we can bring you the first Certified products in the market. You can start to look for the Certified label on upcoming products and can be on the lookout for Certified products from Source One Exclusive and Versa wallcoverings this fall.

What does this new standard mean for you? Now the architectural and design community has a way to easily identify third-party certified, sustainable and environmentally preferable wallcoverings. The NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Standard was developed as a collaborative effort of the Wallcoverings Association (WA), NSF International, an independent organization that writes public health standards for food, water, and consumer goods, as well as other third-party industry and sustainability experts. Products that qualify have been shown to be sustainable, from production processes to disposal. As products with green claims continue to enter the market, independent, third-party certification of these products to national standards, such as NSF/ANSI 342, is essential as it enables buyers to make educated decisions when selecting sustainable products.
