Choosing flooring for education projects is a tough decision and one of the key decision-making criteria for schools is to minimise allergies.
September 1st, 2009
One of the most important factors to take into consideration when specifying flooring for schools and universities is indoor air quality and the minimisation of allergies.
With over 12% of the population suffering from asthma and 40% of the population from allergies, the Sensitive Choice program has been launched by the National Asthma Council to help Australians make better choices in allergy and asthma care.
InterfaceFLOR, global manufacturer of commercial carpet, is leading the way and is the only tufted commercial carpet to be awarded Sensitive Choice approval from the National Asthma council.
InterfaceFLOR carpet tiles emit extremely low levels of VOCs – Volatile Organic Compounds – that trigger asthma and allergy attacks.
And because of the dense loop pile construction of InterfaceFLOR carpet tiles, much of the dust and allergen particles circulating in the air become trapped until they are safely removed by vacuuming.
This improvement in air quality is one of the reasons that InterfaceFLOR carpet has become the popular choice for educational facilities looking to create healthier learning environments.
