Key contribution

Glass, itself, is by definition a non-emitting source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, in keeping with our commitment to using eco-friendly building materials, our mirrors and lacquered glass get the highest score of A+ according to the French standards on VOCs.


To ensure a basic level of high indoor air quality.

Detailed requirement

Part 1: Standards for Volatile Substances:

  • Formaldehyde less than 27 ppb
  • Total volatile organic compounds less than 550 μg/m³

Our contribution

Glass is usually recognized as an inert material, meaning that it does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Regarding furniture, glass is used as mirrors (MIRALITE REVOLUTION, MIRALITE SAFE, MIRALITE PURE, MIRALITE PURE SAFE and MIRASTAR) and lacquered glass (PLANILAQUE COLOR-IT, MY PLANILAQUE STADIP, VITRIO, DECOLIT, and MAGNETIC glass marker board). For this kind of application, in accordance with French regulations on VOCs and construction products, these glazing products rank at the highest scoring of A+, meaning <1000 µg/m3 in total VOCs and <10 µg/m3 in formaldehyde.
