Air Quality Certification
Many BCE furnishing products are in compliance with rigorous indoor air quality emission requirements. Because most people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors – at home, work or school – indoor air quality is an important issue for architects, designers and purchasers of interior building products and materials. Poor indoor air quality is caused by inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning and/or excessive emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from surfaces and finishes. It has been well documented that exposure to poor indoor air can contribute to health problems including headaches, asthma, dizziness and prolonged chemical sensitivities.
