 GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification

In September 2008, MTS started on the path to low-emitting products by certifying all of our stack, banquet, and restaurant seating.

In October 2009, we went one step further.

MTS Seating is proud to announce that our entire line of seating products is now GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified. You can rest assured that no matter which of our quality seating products you choose, it will not contribute to indoor air pollution.

GREENGUARD certification is an internationally recognized product emissions certification and label for manufacturers of low emitting indoor materials, furnishings and processes.  Products undergo rigorous third party testing to determine their impact on indoor air quality, with requirements for ongoing testing and verification.  

One of the most effective ways to battle indoor air pollution is to reduce it at the source. By using low-emitting GREENGUARD Certified products and materials, one can lower the amount of indoor air pollutants to a fraction of the current levels.  

GREENGUARD Certified products are recognized and recommended by leading sustainable building programs, including:

  • US Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED Rating System
  • National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Guidelines
  • Green Guide for Health Care
  • Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS)
  • New York City Department of Design and Construction Sustainable Design Specifications, and other local green building programs.
