Len-Tex Wallcoverings Support Healthy Indoor Air Quality with Clean Vinyl Technology
Specification of wallcoverings and other materials used for an interior project have an impact on indoor air quality (IAQ). The best choices are the materials that offer high performance as well as being environmentally sensitive. Wallcoverings that emit a lower level of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during their installation and over the course of their useful life are the optimal choice for supporting healthy IAQ.
Indoor air quality is an environmental issue that Len-Tex takes very seriously. Len-Tex wallcoverings incorporate Clean Vinyl Technology — a proprietary formulation that contains NO phthalates, heavy metals or formaldehyde. Our wallcoverings meet the rigorous SCS Indoor Advantage certification, as well as California 01350 standard for low VOCs and healthy indoor air quality and the requirements for the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) initiative. This is tangible proof of the company’s commitment to industry-leading initiatives that contribute to healthier living spaces and work environments.
Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) is recognized as the global leader in providing environmental standards and certification for indoor air quality measurements. SCS Indoor Advantage™ Gold certification meets the criteria of the most stringent threshold for indoor emissions, California Section 01350, which uses human health-based standards for indoor air quality. SCS certification requires independent laboratory testing. The testing protocols follow EPA and ASTM methods to measure concentrations of individual VOCs that are known health risks, within the Chronic Reference Exposure Levels (CRELs) of the state of California.
