GREENGUARD certificates awarded to Signbox
Demand for large format printing produced by Signbox’s revolutionary Durst Omega 1 print technology is certain to increase still further now that the inks it uses have been awarded GREENGUARD certificates – they cover ‘Indoor Air Quality’ and ‘Children & Schools’ and mean the inks have met stringent chemical emissions requirements and passed rigorous independent testing before being awarded.
25 February 2013 – Demand for large format printing produced by Signbox’s revolutionary Durst Omega 1 print technology is certain to increase still further now that the inks it uses have been awarded GREENGUARD certificates and cover ‘Indoor Air Quality’ and ‘Children & Schools’.
GREENGUARD certified products must meet stringent chemical emissions requirements, such as being screened for more than 10,000 volatile organic compounds (VOCs). To gain GREENGUARD certification the inks must first pass rigorous independent testing before being awarded the certification and undergo re-certification and quality monitoring tests on a regular basis to maintain this prestigious accreditation.
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry independent, third party certification organisation that qualifies products for low chemical emissions. Certified products can contribute to points in established green building programmes, satisfy code or ordinance criteria or meet indoor air quality specific RFP requirements.
Mark Bartlett, Managing Director of Signbox Ltd, said, “We are delighted that the inks used by our new large format print facility have been awarded such an important environmental quality mark. GREENGUARD Certification is recognised around the world and more and more environmentally aware establishments – including schools and colleges – now recognise their importance; using GREENGUARD certified products reinforces an organisation’s commitment to healthy buildings, the wellbeing of building occupants and sustainability”.
Signbox’s large format print facility has the capability to print at high resolution, up to 1728 dpi on to a range of materials such as metal, glass, acrylic, vinyl, wood and composite board. It can be used to create wall coverings, glass manifestations, partitions, banners, screens and blinds at competitive prices yet at a level of quality that has never been before been possible.
