PEMKO gasketing products GREENGUARD gold certified /global/scaled/500x218x0x60x500x217/Global-Press-and-News-News-2014-303AV.jpg ASSA ABLOY Group company PEMKO now has over 100 of its gaskets certified to GREENGUARD Gold, encompassing over 2,000 catalog items. Products with GREENGUARD Gold Certification have been tested for a number of harmful chemicals and have low total volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions to ensure they are safer and healthier for indoor environments, especially schools and healthcare facilities. This independent third party certification by Underwriters Laboratory aids building and design teams to meet and, in certain cases, exceed emissions criteria in various green building rating programs, such as LEED® and The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS). PEMKO gasketing products achieving certification include Silicone, PemkoPreneTM/TPE (SantopreneTM), Solid EPDM, Sponge EPDM, Nylon Brush, Polypropylene/TPV and the new Eco-VTM material. "Gasketing is a critical but often overlooked product that contributes to indoor air quality and also impacts the energy efficiency of a building. PEMKO and ASSA ABLOY achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification to demonstrate their commitment to continually provide sustainable and healthy products, which also meet the highest levels of performance and reliability," said Aaron Smith, director of sustainable building solutions, ASSA ABLOY Door Security Solutions.
