Sustainability Initiatives

FloorScore_SCS_4CWoodwright Hardwood Floor Company is proud to announce that the majority of our engineered wood flooring products have once again been carefully tested and re-certified as Floorscore®. Products bearing the Floorscore® label meet stringent indoor air quality emissions criteria needed for LEED v.4 EQc2 as well as many other green building schemes.

Today, more than ever before, designers and architects are on the hunt for quality floor coverings that meet their design intent, but that also address concerns of excessive VOC emissions. Floorscore® is the most recognized indoor air quality (IAQ) certification standard for hard surface flooring materials, adhesives, and underlayment’s including engineered hardwood.

Woodwright, based in Dallas, has found a unique way to assist the commercial architectural and design communities by combining our custom manufacturing capabilities along with our Floorscore® and FSC Certifications to offer “project specific” wood floors, plank walls and stair treads. Next on our sustainability agenda is a LEED v.4 compliant Health Product Declaration (HPD)! This will encompass a large amount of shop finished urethane floors and documentation for no-added formaldehyde (NAF) or ultra-low-emitting formaldehyde (ULEF).

Designer PagesIn addition to this renewal we are very excited to   announce that we are improving our visibility in the market place and are now widely represented on Designer Pages!
Over time we will continue to add more of our custom products to the Designer Pages site, including our flat and 3D wall applications, ceiling planks, and stair treads. Getting our products onto Mindful Materials as well as Google Portico are also currently in the works.

About FloorScore®
Contributors to poor indoor air quality include inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning, and/or excessive emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Because people now spend 90% of their time indoors, breathing poor quality air increases the risk for a variety of health concerns.

While industry insiders know that LEED certification has become the standard for environmentally safe projects, FloorScore® has also become the standard for hard surface flooring for meeting stringent indoor air quality requirements. Developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), hard surface flooring and adhesive products are now rigorously tested and independently verified by SCS Global Services, an independent 3rd party certification organization, for compliance with the VOC emissions criteria of California Section 01350. FloorScore® measures the most important risk to indoor air quality, the emission levels of specific VOCs found in flooring products. A FloorScore® certification means that the product actually contributes to good indoor air quality. To learn more about FloorScore®, please visit www.rfci.com.

Breathe Easier with Floorscore® Certification

Did you know indoor air pollution is 2-5 times higher than that found outdoors?

Contributors to poor indoor air quality include inadequate ventilation, poor cleaning, and/or excessive emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s). Because people now spend 90% of their time indoors, breathing poor quality air increases the risk for a variety of health concerns.

While industry insiders know that LEED certification has become the standard for environmentally safe projects, a relatively unheard of certification that is quickly rising in demand is FloorScore®. Developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), hard surface flooring and adhesive products are now rigorously tested and independently verified by a 3rd party certification organization for compliance with indoor air quality emissions requirements. FloorScore® measures the most important risk to indoor air quality, the emission levels of specific VOC’s found in flooring products. A FloorScore® certification means that the product actually contributes to good indoor air quality.

Fewer VOC’s = Healthier Air = Healthier Humans.

As an FSC® certified manufacturer since 2009, Woodwright Hardwood Floor Company continues to take a proactive approach to maintaining the delicate balance between man and our environment. Having recently completed the rigorous certification process for our engineered wood flooring (unfinished and finished), we are proud to receive the FloorScore® seal of approval.
