Wood Dale, IL, June 27, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Dwyer Products Corp. is pleased to announce that its line of custom steel and thermofoil cabinetry has been designated Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified® by the Greenguard Environmental Institute (GEI), which establishes performance-based standards for low-emitting building materials, furnishings and finishes used indoors. Greenguard Certification ensures that building materials have been rigorously tested and proven to adhere to strict chemical and particle emissions criteria. Dwyer cabinetry is the first kitchen and healthcare cabinetry to receive this certification.
In addition, Dwyer’s cabinetry received the Greenguard for Children & Schools(SM) certification, the most stringent standard for materials, furnishings and finish systems that considers heightened sensitivities to chemical emissions. The Children & Schools Certification is a referenced standard for products used in K-12 schools, daycare facilities and healthcare environments, where indoor air quality is a critical concern.
Dwyer provides architects, designers and building professionals with durable, attractive custom cabinetry that supports better indoor air quality without sacrificing style. “We are committed to developing environmentally friendly products that offer architects, developers, design professionals and the chemically sensitive a range of finishes and styles that reflect the latest trends,” says Clay Jacobs, president of Dwyer Products Corp. “There is no question that low-emitting products and materials help improve indoor air quality, especially in the healthcare and educational arenas, where particleboard casework has long been suspected to be a significant contributor to ‘sick building syndrome.’ Meeting rigorous third-party standards emphasizes our dedication to the environment – both indoors and out.”
