Certification: Protecting the Environment and Improving Wellness

The following certification and testing demonstrates our commitment to minimalizing our impact on the environment, and to protecting and enhancing the wellness of those who make and use our products.

Low VOC Certification

Our Keystone and our acoustic pod families are independently tested at accredited laboratories and certified to GECA FFF2.1i 2014 and ANSI/BIFMA M7.1 standards. This is part of our continuing efforts to ensure our furniture is manufactured to the highest standards, providing clients with peace of mind and a healthier option for office staff.

This is equivalent to NZGBCstandards:

  • Materials 4 Criteria A - Air Pollutants
  • Materials A Criteria A - Furniture

Therefore our products are deemed to comply with VOC requirements as a third-party verified eco-label.

PLN Group is committed to producing furniture which is low VOC certified and has no harmful off-gassing.
