JASPER, IN - Indiana Furniture announced that a number of its products recently received GREENGUARD Certification, a third-party certification for products that safeguard indoor air quality.

The certification, which includes the Jasper, IN-based company’s Promise, Centennial, Revolutions and Madera desk and casegoods lines, means the products meet the independent GREENGUARD Environmental Institute’s high standards for indoor air quality, according to a release from Indiana Furniture. They also meet the Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Assn.’s standards for low-emitting office furniture systems and earn points for LEED Credit 4.5.

The products are cured with UV light during the finishing process, which prevents the emission of toxins, formaldehyde or solvents into the air, according to the release.

“We are pleased to welcome Indiana Furniture as a participating manufacturer in the GREENGUARD Certification Program,” said Marilyn Black, founder of GEI.  “By attaining this certification, Indiana Furniture continues to show its leadership in addressing concerns of the community.”

Attaining GREENGUARD Certification on products in its standard line is part of Indiana Furniture’s ongoing effort to make it easy and affordable to specify on LEED projects, according to the release. With the certification in place, the company will expand its offering of the environmentally safe finish to further product lines.

“We want to make it simple and affordable to specify products that contribute to creating more healthful places for people to work,” said Rich Slayton, president and CEO of Indiana Furniture.
