Laticrete Greenguard for Children & School logo

BETHANY, CT - Laticrete, a global leader in the manufacturing of innovative systems for the installation of stone and tile, has announced that its entire range of Greenguard certified products has passed the most stringent emissions criteria to date and are now certified under Greenguard for Children & Schools. Laticrete stone and tile installation materials meet the most stringent product emissions criteria developed by the Greenguard Environmental Institute for low-emitting building materials used in daycare, K-12 and healthcare facilities. The new standards were developed by evaluating the chemical sensitivities of children and the unique building characteristics of schools. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has approved Greenguard Children & Schools certification as an acceptable compliance path for all low-emitting flooring credits in LEED Rating Systems. Printable Laticrete product certificates are readily available at for easy submission in the LEED process.

Greenguard for Children & Schools certification helps architects, builders, designers and specifiers identify products and materials that have undergone rigorous testing and meet stringent standards for chemical emissions. Laticrete products certified under the Greenguard Children & Schools program are specified in the USGBC’s LEED Rating Systems, CHPS Best Practices Manual and the Green Guide for Healthcare for low-emitting materials. Greenguard Children & Schools follows the State of California’s Department of Health Services Standard Practice for testing chemical emissions from building products used in schools and office buildings.
