To promote the consideration of emissions of total volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde, as health-related impacts, in the choice of construction products.

Detailed requirement

Determining the health-related impact of construction products with respect to indoor air quality, choosing construction products to limit the health-related impact of the building and limiting pollution due to wood treatments.

Our contribution

Indoor air quality and therefore the level of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a major concern because we spend most of our time indoors. The glass itself is a non-emitting source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). As far as the coating is concerned, it is not in direct contact with the indoor air because it is generally placed on the inside face of the double glazing.
