We are proud to say all our products – porcelain and ceramic – have an HPD accreditation. Additionally, all our field tiles are Declare Red List free and our list of products with EPD certifications continues to grow.

Declare is a nutrition label for building products. It is designed to help specifiers quickly identify products that meet their project requirements. Declare labels disclose all intentionally added ingredients and residuals at or above 100ppm (0.01%) present in the final product by weight. The Red List is The Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List and represents the “worst in class” materials, chemicals, and elements known to pose serious risks to human health and the greater ecosystem that are prevalent in the building products industry.
