GREENGUARD Certified Ceiling Tiles
All Ceilume Smart Ceiling Tiles have been awarded the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute's Indoor Air Quality Certification and Children & Schools Certification, which comply with established indoor air quality standards such as U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's purchasing requirements, the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, and more.
Indoor Air Quality Certification
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute has established performance based standards to define goods with low chemical and particle emissions for use indoors, primarily building materials, interior furnishings, furniture, cleaning and maintenance products, electronic equipment, and personal care products. The standard establishes certification procedures including test methods, allowable emissions levels, product sample collection and handling, testing type and frequency, and program application processes and acceptance.

Children & Schools Certification
GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification program's minimum requirements comply with the State of California's Department of Health Services Standard Practice (CA Section 01350) for testing chemical emissions from building products used in schools, offices and other sensitive environments. As such, GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified products can be used as a strategy to earn valuable credits in the CHPS Best Practices Manual for K-12 schools, U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Green Building Rating System, Green Guide for Healthcare, NAHB Green Building Guidelines, Green Globes, Regreen and numerous other local green building codes.
