Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Greenguard certification

Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Greenguard certification

The demand for healthy, sustainable products continues to grow. Consumers and building industry professionals alike are increasingly looking to qualify a product’s sustainability claims to ensure they are substantiated. And they are relying on trustworthy third-party certifiers to guide purchasing and specification decisions.

GALE Pacific’s Commercial 95® is the first shadecloth in its class to obtain Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Greenguard children and school certification.

The Greenguard and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certifications set stringent limits for products to achieve in several key areas such as:

  • Limiting Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content
  • Lowering formaldehyde emissions
  • Lowering lead and phthalate content

Greenguard and Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification provides the market with solutions and resources to ensure healthier environments. It also provides manufacturers with credible tools to legitimise and promote their sustainability efforts.
