The majority of everyday chemical exposure in people occurs through the air we breathe in our homes, offices, schools and other indoor air environments. These airborne chemicals are commonly referred to as volatile organic compounds (VOCSs), used to manufacture and maintain building materials, interior furnishing, cleaning products and personal care products. 


Indoor Air Quality  


This certification is only given to products in the building materials and furniture sector with low VOC emissions. It was validated by SCS Global Services, an international leader in certification, validation, and testing, through independently accredited laboratories utilising the highest quality standards available. 


On average, we spend about 90% of our time indoors, but how often do we think about the quality of the air we breathe? It is now a well-established fact that good indoor air quality is required for occupant well-being and that the products we put in our indoor environment can both negatively and positively affect indoor air quality. This is where SCS indoor advantage certification plays its role. It provides assurance to building owners, product specifiers and ultimately, the occupants of the buildings that the products have been tested and certified. 


Collections that have this certification: Avantgarde, Chronos, Diamante, Hitch, Hitch C5, Linetex, Maglia, Maglia C5, Silvertex, Silvertex B1, Silvertex C5, Tannery, Valencia, Valencia C5, Valencia B1, Valencia Heritage Collection. 


GreenGuard Gold


The GreenGuard Gold certification is recognized by numerous programs, standards and specifiers around the world. The products that are recognized with this certification emit very low levels of chemicals, so they are totally safe products to use. Green Guard Gold presents the strictest criteria to date regarding low-emission products. It was originally developed through the study of the chemical sensitivities of children, who are at a higher risk of harm from inhaling VOCs. A product with GreenGuard Gold certifications emits even lower chemical levels and is particularly low in formaldehyde levels, so it is safe for use around children and other vulnerable populations such as the sick or elderly.
