As health and the environment are extremely important to mFLOR, all of our design floors have very low emission values. There is good reason why we have been certified by the DIBt (German Centre of Competence for Construction). Unfortunately, there are no European standards in place as yet with regard to emissions. In addition to the national standards, various voluntary standards have been developed in this area. All of these standards are assessed on the basis of standardised laboratory test methods.
This wide range of standards can make things quite confusing. For this reason, Eurofins – a prominent international test laboratory – decided to develop its own, more comprehensive ‘Indoor Air Quality’ standard. Continuing from this, an ‘Indoor Air Quality Gold Standard’ has been developed, which involves tests on an even greater number of substances and under which the permissible levels of emissions are lower than under any other national standard.
