NSF 342

As part of our commitment to providing sustainable products and promoting sustainable business practices, TRI-KES is proud to be the first qualified NSF/ANSI 342 distributor worldwide to offer NSF/ANSI 342 certified wallcoverings. 

NSF/ANSI 342 is a multi-attribute, 3rd-party certified sustainability standard that evaluates product from raw material extraction through manufacturing and distribution. Why is NSF important to the architecture and design community? It allows for quick and easy identification of sustainable wallcovering by cutting through all of the green claims being made today.

Multi-attribute, environmental & social responsibility
This standard considers an entire spectrum of characteristics that impact the environment such as recycled content, low VOC, energy consumption, carbon footprint, chemicals of concern, waste stream, social responsibility, and more.

Multi-attribute vs Single-attribute
Multi-attribute standards require that multiple requirements are met. Just because a product is made from natural substrate does not mean it was manufactured or distributed using sustainable methods.

3rd Party Certified
NSF/ANSI 342 is verified by NSF International, the certifying body. NSF evaluates claims and monitors processes to ensure the standard is met. Yearly evaluation and requalification is required. Self-certified standards simply do not have the same credibility as 3rd-party certified standards.

Manufacturer and Distributor must Qualify for the product to be Certified
Both the manufacturer and distributor must qualify to the standard to bring certified product to market. Working together, manufacturers and distributors drive higher levels of sustainability. Points are gained by manufacturers and distributors in each category and total points obtained determines qualification of product as conformant, silver, gold or platinum.

ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, a private, non-profit organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products. The process is open to representatives from all interested parties, promoting the development of a balanced consensus based standard.
