Floor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) certification
FloorScore certification is a cost-effective certification project jointly developed by the American Flooring Institute (RFCI) and the American Scientific System Certification Co., Ltd. (SCS) to ensure consumers that certified flooring products, including SPC flooring, vinyl click flooring, Rigid core flooring and floor adhesives achieve strict indoor air Quality (IAQ) requirements.
Strict quality control
Manufacturers certified by FloorScore will implement strict quality control, including strict management of the supply chain. Flooring products such as SPC Click flooring, vinyl flooring and LVT Click flooring marked with the FloorScore trademark meet the indoor air quality emission standards of the US Environmental and Healthy Building Projects: LEED, CHPS, Green Building Guidelines and Health and Safety and are recognized by them. FloorScore floor air quality certification will also be an important step for you to obtain the American National Standard NSF/ANSI 332 sustainability certification.
FloorScore certification-inspection standards
FloorScore’s product inspection is based on the CA 01350 standard, which includes the long-term exposure reference level (CRE) concentration standard established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) and the inspection method established by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Assuming that a product detected in an office or classroom may contain organic volatile compounds, the product certified by FloorScore does not exceed the concentration limit 1/2.
