Fostoria, Ohio—Commercial flooring manufacturer Roppe recently published its first Health Product Declaration (HPD) for Envire Rubber Sheet and Tile products.
Envire Rubber Sheet and Tile is formulated to be free of Red List chemicals, PVC, phthalates, and halogens. Envire is also made in the U.S.A. and meets FloorScore, NSF332 Gold and CHPS criteria. The unique flecked design of tonal rubber chips helps hide dirt and debris between cleanings, while the versatile palette of 32 designer-inspired hues aligns with other Roppe rubber tile and tread products and coordinates with FlashCove, Pinnacle and Pinnacle Plus wall base and accessories lines. All colors options are available at a single price point within each product category.
The Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC) is a not-for-profit member organization committed to the continuous improvement of the building industry’s performance through transparency, openness and innovation in the product supply chain. The organization created, supports and evolves the Health Product Declaration, an open standard format for the accurate reporting of material contents and potential health hazards.
“Publishing HPDs for Roppe products is an important and necessary step for us," said Bart Rogers, vp sales and marketing. “We understand these documents not only help our customers make more informed purchasing decisions, but they confirm our desire to be transparent as it relates to material health issues that are so important in the design world today and moving forward.”
HPDs qualify for numerous green building rating systems, including LEED v4, Living Building Challenge (LBC), Green Globes, WELL, FIT-Wel and Google Portico.
