Herculite Products Inc., a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance and custom fabrics, is pleased to announce that three of its high-performance flexible composites have earned GREENGUARD Gold Certification. The entire assortment of Weather-Chek® awning fabrics, Sure-Chek Linen® healthcare curtain fabrics, and the Architent® Starfree Blackout tent fabrics have now completed the rigorous process to achieve this certification.
Recognized and referenced by over 400 codes, rating systems, and procurement policies worldwide, UL’s GREENGUARD Certification Program requires that products meet some of the world's most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor environments. The UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification Standard includes health-based criteria for additional chemicals and requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
“Herculite has long been an innovator in manufacturing safe fabrics for use in sensitive environments, having launched the Sure-Chek healthcare fabrics over 60 years ago. While our products have always been safe for indoor use, GREENGUARD Certification provides rigorous third-party certification to ensure that they are helping to create healthier indoor environments." said Herculite’s President & CEO, Peter McKernan.
These three product lines represent an initial wave of certification by Herculite as part of our commitment to manufacturing textiles designed to create healthy, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing user-focused environments.
