What is GreenGuard Certification?
GreenGuard and GreenGuard gold certification consists of rigorous, third-party analysis of more than 360 different VOCs (chemical emissions) for a given product to ensure that GreenGuard-certified products contribute less to air contamination, which creates healthier, safer indoor environments.
In order to be certified, the product must meet specific requirements set forth by UL:
• GREENGUARD Certification: Total VOC emission rate of 500 ?g/m3
• GREENGUARD Gold Certification: Total VOC emission rate of 220 ?g/m3
UL is the only recognized tester and issuer of GreenGuard certification. Materials marked simply as “low-VOC” are often not held to any standard and their “low-VOC,” “green” or “eco-friendly” claims can be misleading. GreenGuard is recognized as a reputable certification for low-VOC testing by hundreds of Federal, State, Local and Commercial procurement specifications, regulatory agencies, building codes and standards.
LEED & California Green Building Standards Code (CGBSC)-Friendly Design Options
We understand the importance of environmentally conscious building design and construction. The recent John Manville's OEM GreenGuard certifications support designers and construction professionals in earning Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits. Insul-Fab now offers a wider-array of insulation options for OEM’s that are pre-qualified as contributing to LEED points, as GreenGuard is officially recognized by the LEED system and simply having this certification demonstrates compliance with the standard. So, if you are looking for low-VOC insulation material for your next LEED-pursuing project, these are the same great Johns Manville products that you’ve always trusted… now they just come with a UL certification!
GreenGuard isn’t a spec requirement for my OEM project. How can I justify using these products?
We understand that budgets are often tight, and stakeholders won’t always approve purchasing materials that meet a more stringent requirement than is required by the project. The good news is that there is no additional cost to get a GreenGuard certified product! It is not an optional upgrade or add-on feature that you’ll have to sell the purchasing department on. In fact, by leaning forward towards a more environmentally-friendly material, you are staying ahead of the rapid changes in environmental standards and code that HVAC, automotive, appliance, equipment, and other OEM industries are currently experiencing. Even if GreenGuard certified materials aren’t required on your projects now, they definitely could be in the future.
