Recent regulatory changes in California and media attention has prompted a number of customers to inquire about the chemicals used in furniture. The primary interest revolves around flame retardant chemicals in the polyurethane foam used in furniture. Klaussner has removed all flame retardant chemicals from our polyurethane foam as of March 28th, 2014.
Chemicals that were of particular concern were TDCPP, TDCEP, TDCP, and Penta Bromine’s. These chemicals haven’t been used by Klaussner for a number of years.
One very important fact is that all Klaussner domestic product is made with foam that is certified as Certi-PUR. To be certified the foam must be:
. Made without ozone depleters
. Made without PBDE flame retardants
. Made without mercury, lead and other heavy metals
. Made without formaldehyde
. Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
. Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
For more information on the Certi-PUR program you should check out www.certipur.us.
