Wilsonart(R) Duracryl(TM) Sink Products Earn GREENGUARD(R) Certification
Certification assures consumers that Wilsonart Duracryl sink products
are free from chemical emissions, making them safe for durable, elegant
installations that contribute to quality indoor air.
TEMPLE, Texas–(EMWNews)–Wilsonart® Solid
Surface, a division of Wilsonart International, Inc., announced its
Duracryl Sink products have been awarded the GREENGUARD®
Indoor Air Quality Certification and GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM
certification. GREENGUARD certification means these Wilsonart products
are safe for indoor applications and make a significant contribution to
quality indoor air by meeting strict chemical and particle emission
Wilsonart Duracryl sink products are widely used in both residential and
commercial environments. They can be undermounted to laminate and hard
surface countertops, food service areas, vanities and related structures
in the convenience/retail, education, hospitality, healthcare and
military industries. Architects, interior designers, building
professionals and homeowners are now assured that Wilsonart products
have passed rigorous third-party testing to verify conformance with
stringent low-emissions standards.
The GREENGUARD Children & Schools certification signifies a
compliance with the State of California’s
Department of Health Services’ standard
practices for testing chemical emissions from building products used in
schools. Children are more heavily exposed to environmental toxins than
adults. They consume more food, water, and have higher inhalation rates
per pound of body weight than adults. This certification ensures the
materials used in learning environments are safe for young children1.
Wilsonart’s Duracryl sinks and bowls are
offered in two colors and a variety of styles to complement your
countertop, and feature a clean transition for great looks and easy
maintenance. A special adhesive and patent-pending installation
technique allow Duracryl sinks to be undermounted to postformed laminate
tops with almost imperceptible telegraphing. Fabrication time has been
greatly reduced as compared to conventional methods.
“Wilsonart offers quality sink products that
are beautiful, durable and easy to care for. Adding GREENGUARD
certification to Duracryl validates our commitment to the total user
experience which includes promoting healthy indoor air,”
said Richard Conde, Sink Product Manager, Wilsonart Solid Surface.
