Wright Line, a manufacturer of enclosures and airflow management systems for data centers, as well as command and control consoles and other furniture for technology-intensive work applications, has announced that a number of its products have been certified to meet the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) standards for products from the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). Through this designation, Wright Line is giving its customers the ability to create healthier environments while bringing them closer to achieving Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) points.
Wright Line’s Compass™, LINX®, LMS™, Optimedia®, Profile®, TechBench™ and TechCart™ product lines now hold the GREENGUARD Certification. The process to attain the third-party GREENGUARD Certification stamp of approval requires rigorous testing to determine if the individual components that make up the final products consist of low-emitting materials. (Shown here is the Profile® Advanced Console System.)
“Green has become a key in product selection and we are thrilled to have attained this designation from the GEI. As we work with business owners, as well as specifying members of the architect, design and engineering communities, on new construction projects we will certainly tout this important certification,” stated Wright Line CEO, Ed Bednarcik. The 75 year old company is headquartered in Worcester, MA.
Said Dr. Marilyn Black, Founder of GEI, “The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute applauds Wright Line on its commitment to furthering our mission of improving indoor air quality. When certified Wright Line products are integrated into any facility, building owners can be assured that the products they are purchasing are healthy for their indoor environments.”
