Components supplier and sleep accessories producer Carpenter Co. of Richmond, Va., is providing CertiPUR–US certified foams for bedding and upholstered furniture.
“At Carpenter Co., we continually apply new technologies and the highest standards of quality for our cushioning products,” said Scott Pugh, director of Carpenter’s Reinhart Technical Center. “The CertiPUR–US certification gives our customers assurance that our focus remains on quality, performance, comfort and the environment.”
CertiPUR–US is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program of the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam, based in Loudon, Tenn. Certified products must be low–emission for indoor air quality and made without ozone–depleters, formaldehyde, PBDEs, prohibited phthalates, lead, mercury and other materials of concern. CertiPUR–US also sets baseline standards for physical attributes that contribute to foam comfort and durability.
