Metroflor's Aspecta earns NSF/ANSI 332 certification

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 9.22.49 AMNorwalk, Conn.—Following on the heels of the first-ever Platinum NSF/ANSI 332 sustainability assessment certification in resilient flooring for its Aspecta Five contract LVT range, Metroflor’s dedication to sustainability and product certification has been reinforced with both Aspecta One and Aspecta Ten achieving the Gold level.

Under this widely recognized industry standard, resilient flooring products are evaluated for environmental performance and sustainability attributes in five key areas: product design, manufacturing, long-term value, corporate governance and innovation. Performance is scored on a 100-point scale.

“As a company, sustainability is a core part of how we do business, and we are continually improving our environmental performance and social responsibility,” said Corey Carter, director of safety and sustainability for Metroflor. “These new certifications reflect our unwavering commitment to sustainability in both the products we produce and our corporate practices.”

A global LVT brand developed by Metroflor, Aspecta was developed based on consultation with architects, designers and contractors to outperform current market offerings from an aesthetic as well as practical perspective. The new Aspecta Ten will be launched at NeoCon in Chicago this week while Aspecta One will be previewed at the show.
