Florian has always been committed to environmental and energy issues; that is why we obtained the following certifications.
Our floorings comply with the requirements dictated by the legislation on CE marking, which certifies the conformity of the wooden floor according to the standards of the European Community, essential for marketing within the European territory. The brand guarantees quality, safety and consumer protection.
FSC® and PEFC
Trademarks are used to identify all those products that contain wood coming from forests that are managed in a controlled and responsible way, according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. Chain of Custody (COC) certification guarantees the traceability of certified materials. In this way, we can guarantee the proper control over the origin of the wood used for our products and we show in a transparent way our active contribution to responsible forest management and environmental protection. On demand, we can supply FSC or PEFC certified products.
These certifications allow to:
• Preserve the forest as a habitat for animals and plants • Maintain the protective function of water, soil and climate of forests • Protect forest ecosystems biodiversity • Verify the origin of raw materials and a sustainable management and harvesting system • Respecting the natural forest growth rhythm • Support reforestation or natural regeneration of the subject areas • Protect the rights and health of workers • Favor short supply chains.
INDOOR AIR COMFORT GOLD
“Indoor Air Comfort” (IAC) Certification is an innovative instrument to show compliance of a product with low VOC (volatile organic compounds) emission requirements established in Europe. The “Indoor Air Comfort GOLD ” certified product shows further compliance of emissions with many of the voluntary specifications issued by most eco-quality brands and similar specifications in the EU. Therefore, certified products for emissions are excellent for indoor air quality. Our two and three-layers flooring is the only one that has obtained the certification in Italy.
