CALGARY—DIRTT Environmental Solutions Ltd., a manufacturer of agile interior construction solutions, announces that its Thermafoil wrapped medium density fiberboard (MDF) tiles have earned SCS Indoor Advantage Gold, a leading indoor air quality certification issued by SCS Global Services (SCS).

This is DIRTT’s third SCS Indoor Advantage® Gold certification; other certified products include DIRRT’s glass curtain wall with anodized aluminum frame and its solid wall with NAF (MDF). Thermafoil is impact and chemical resistant, is a fire retardant, has low moisture absorption, and is free of phthalates and plasticizers.

“It is extremely important to continue to develop materials that meet the highest environmental standards,” says Houston Peschl, DIRTT’s director of operations and sustainability. “Certification of our Thermafoil Tiles by SCS Global Services means we can offer our clients even more options when choosing low-emitting materials that conform to a variety of environmental certifications.”

SCS Indoor Advantage Gold also meets criteria for indoor environmental quality and low-emitting materials as specified in the USGBC Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) IEQ credit 4.5.
