CertainTeed Gypsum Announces GREENGUARD Gold Certification Empowering Customers to Select Products for Sustainable, Healthy Environments
MALVERN, PA, November 2021 —Building on a commitment to ensure its building products meet high environmental and safety standards, CertainTeed, a leading North American brand of building materials, announces GREENGUARD Gold Certification for NO-COAT® drywall corners and tape products. As one of the first companies in the market to obtain this certification, it enables architects to specify any NO-COAT® corner and tape product, in support of achieving better LEED performance across projects. GREENGUARD Gold Certified products aid in the creation of healthier indoor environments and release fewer pollutants.
Championing A Healthier Future
CertainTeed has long been a champion of sustainability. The continued investment to achieve the GREENGUARD Gold Certification reinforces the NO-COAT® market leadership position. Engineered to provide superior strength and durability while delivering bottom-line savings in labor, through ease and speed of installation, the product range now also leads the way in sustainability.
“We strive to deliver consistent quality and provide easy-to-use products that meet increasingly stringent building codes and industry standards,” said Najwa Khoury, Vice President, Gypsum Marketing, CertainTeed. “As one of the leading manufacturers in ensuring building products meet high environmental and safety standards, we are committed to sustainability — corners and joint tape are now GREENGUARD Gold Certified which provides material transparency and helps projects achieve LEED and other Green Building rating goals.”
The Importance of GREENGUARD Certification
Products that have achieved GREENGUARD Gold Certification are scientifically proven and third-party verified to meet some of the world’s most rigorous chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure. According to the California Department of Public Health CDPH 1.2, improving indoor air quality (IAQ) is a subtle balance of proper ventilation rates, managing volatile organic compounds, air temperature, humidity levels, water, and light. This achievement makes CertainTeed Gypsum corner and tape products ideal for use in homes, schools, and healthcare facilities.
GREENGUARD Gold certified products are available across our NO-COAT®, AquaBead®, LEVELLINE® Corner Products, as well as Spark-Perf Joint Tape products.
