Material Health & Transparency
The Mindful Materials (mM) program is a program aimed at improving communication on product Transparency. Engineered Floors Commercial brand EF Contract has been a long standing supporter of the mM program.
We also offer firms that ask, special mM Labels on our product binders in their resource libraries here.
Find up-to-date certifications and transparency documentation for all our products by using the mindful Materials database.
ENGINEERED FLOORS COMMERCIAL IS AN APPROVED MINDFUL MATERIALS MANUFACTURER. This means our product data will be up to do in the mM library for program users.
EF Contract is pleased to offer an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for ourLVT, Kinetex Textile Composite Flooring, all of our standard broadloom and modular carpet products, as well as those broadloom products using our moisture barrier backing, TitanBac® Plus.
An EPD includes data on every environmental touch point of a product. In addition to examining raw materials and manufacturing processes, the EPD also takes into account packaging, shipping, installation, cleaning and maintenance during product use, and the end-of-life impact of the product. The declaration is based on verified, objective criteria according to ISO standards and the Product Category Rules for flooring products.
EF Contract has met the verification requirements for Carbon Neutral Products by purchasing offsets for 100% of its A1-A3 GWP values reported publicly in our 3rd Party Verified Environmental Production Declaration (EPD) for all annual production of Kinetex.
EF Contract is pleased to offer a HPD (Health Product Declaration) for our LVT, Kinetex Textile Composite Flooring and all of our standard broadloom and modular carpet products.
To provide GREATER TRANSPARENCY and easier accessibility to product information, EF Contract offers its customers the following independent verification of our products’ environmental attributes.
Health Product Declarations are a standardized format for disclosure of product contents, emissions and health information to increase transparency and reduce redundant disclosure demands by referencing existing hazard lists and providing a human health context for information disclosed in an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and other documents. It is included as a compliance option for the Building Product Disclosure and Optimization: Material Ingredients credit in the current public comment draft of the forthcoming LEED v4 rating system.
