Now more than ever we find ourselves being mindful of how to keep our family healthy.
One way we can work towards a healthy home is by choosing window furnishings with ‘green’ attributes. Consider some of the following:
If a product is labeled as Oeko-Tex certified it is free from harmful chemicals.
To attain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification, the fabric has been tested and certified to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be harmful to human health.
The GREENGUARD Gold Certification standard requires lower total VOC* emissions levels to help ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments like schools and healthcare facilities.
*Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids.
Sanitized® Antimicrobial Protection
Stands for odour management in textiles. The Sanitized® hygiene function protects textiles from the formation of fungi and algae, reduces dust mites and odours, and provides long-lasting material protection.
That’s enough of the technical stuff. What we now want to know is where can we get product with these attributes?
Call into the Frazerhurst Showroom and we will talk through your options.
