American OEM Hardwood Floors has achieved Indoor Advantage Gold Certification for its hardwood flooring products. Indoor Advantage Gold certification assures that building material products support a healthy indoor environment by meeting strict indoor air quality (IAQ) chemical emission limits for volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Indoor Advantage Gold helps contribute to the LEED V4 standard in the Indoor Environmental Quality category, as well as several other building schemes including BREEAM, WELL Building and Living Building Challenge. The certification also aligns with both ANSI/BIFMA M7.1 and CA 01350. Products must be tested by independent labs for compliance with CDPH/EHLB Standard Method V1-1 for VOC emissions in order to achieve certification.
American OEM has also achieved the California Air Resources Board CARB ULEF Exempt status based on the company’s rigorous VOC testing for all its hardwood products.
