IAQ BENEFITS WELLBEING
Indoor Air Quality is essential for a healthy office environment. Indoor air quality can impact the health, comfort, wellbeing and productivity of building occupants.
A collaborative study in 2015 discovered that people who work in good IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) conditions have significantly higher cognitive function scores when responding to a crisis or developing a strategy. 24 participants including architects, designers, programmers, engineers, creative marketing professionals, and managers worked in a controlled office environment at Syracuse University. Cognitive performance scores for the participants who worked in the green environment would on average double those of the participants who worked in conventional environments. Chroma is very serious about providing clients with products that comply to the highest standards and encourage the use of environmentally friendly products and those that benefit the occupants of a space. Chroma Global brand Artigo Rubber Flooring has excellent credentials and Greenguard Certification for their products.
The Greenguard Certification Program gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces (and thus providing good indoor air quality) meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors. Ensures that a product has met some of the world's most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air.
The Greenguard Gold Standard includes health based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
Greenguard Certification has been widely adopted as a trusted standard for low emitting products. In fact, more than 400 green building codes, standards, guidelines, procurements policies, and rating systems give credit for Greenguard.
