ATLANTA, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute has awarded GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification to Rikett for their high-performance, 100% quartz reinforced vinyl floor tiles.

Rikett's flooring was tested under the GREENGUARD Certification Program's test protocols for low emitting indoor flooring and will be re-tested regularly to ensure continued compliance with the GREENGUARD Standards. Rikett quartz flooring joins the wide variety of certified products, from paint to furniture and insulation, in the GREENGUARD Online Product Guide that helps specifiers find low emitting interior materials.

Respiratory irritation and asthma have been related to emissions from common indoor materials such as furniture, flooring, paint, adhesives, cleaning materials, and many others. GREENGUARD Certified low-emitting products are proven to have minimal impact on indoor environments. Using low-emitting materials is vital in creating spaces that foster the well being and quality of life of building occupants, according to the GEI.

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute is an independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program. As an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer, the GEI establishes acceptable standards for indoor products and testing protocols. The Institute's goal is to improve public health and quality of life by helping manufacturers build better and safer products. The GREENGUARD Certification Program is the only industry independent certification program for low emitting products.
