At Parterre, we are committed to more than just a beautiful surface. Striving to continuously improve the overall performance for commercial environments, we understand the importance of crafting flooring and surface designs that deliver on style, quality and function — as well as sustainability.
The composition of our flooring is important to us, which is why our products are phthalate-free, made from a non-phthalate plasticizer: DOTP (Dioctyl Terephthalate plasticizer).
The following information provides further insight into the achievements Parterre has reached with its LVT products:
California Proposition 65 is a state act that requires businesses to warn consumers about elements of concern in the composition of the products they sell. After required product analysis, all Parterre products pass Proposition 65, meaning the composition of our flooring is not a concern. FloorScore® Certification* FloorScore® is a certification program that tests hard surface flooring and adhesive products for compliance with indoor air quality emissions; our products and adhesives are FloorScore® certified. The FloorScore® certificate is available to view on our Resource Center.
California Specification 1350, which provides environmental and public health requirements for building projects, includes guidelines for indoor air quality. Parterre products are indoor air quality certified and offer a moisture barrier that prevents microbial growth.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) is a green building certification program that uses a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of a building in an effort to be more environmentally responsible. Parterre products may be eligible for LEED credits, meeting the guidelines for Low Emitting Materials and Low Emitting Adhesives.
WELL is a building standard that prioritizes the health and well-being of occupants in a building. Considered a sister certification to LEED, which focuses on environmental impacts, WELL focuses on human health impacts a building has and how to improve them. Parterre products may be eligible for WELL credits; a credit analysis has been created for Parterre and is available to view in its entirety our Resource Center.
Health Product Declarations, which determine what products are comprised of and how they could affect human health have been completed for Parterre products. The results of Parterre’s HPDs show that our products are not considered harmful to human health. Available to download on our Resource Center are certifications for Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank, Loose Lay and Rigid Core Click with acoustic backing, as well as a summary of results for each declaration.
Environmental Product Declarations, which determine a product’s life-cycle environmental impact, have been completed for Parterre products. Available to download on our Resource Center are certifications for Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank, Loose Lay and Rigid Core Click with acoustic backing, as well as a summary of results for each declaration.
