1. The Past: 100+ Years of Innovation
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the industry’s fastest growing categories and for good reason. It’s attractive, versatile, durable, easy to maintain, and cost effective. In addition, Metroflor luxury vinyl flooring products are FloorScore® certified so you can breathe easier knowing they contribute to healthy indoor air quality.
FloorScore® is a universally recognized low VOC certification program which uses an independent certifier, Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), to determine whether hard surface flooring products meet the California health-based low VOC requirements for indoor air quality.
This is based on small environmental chamber VOC testing and recognized indoor air quality modeling under the California Section 01350 specification. This specification includes health-based Chronic Exposure Levels (CREL) concentrations established by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment and building modeling parameters developed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA).
