Da-Lite Screen Company Announces GREENGUARD® Certification Addition to Da-Lite Screen Green™ Program

Warsaw, IN – March 1, 2008 – Da-Lite Screen Company achieves GREENGUARD®
Environmental Institute certification (#90068) for low emitting projection screen fabrics. This significant achievement contributes to Da-Lite’s overall Screen Green™ program by including the Institute’s GREENGUARD Certified Products and Children & Schools Certification for low-emitting audio visual equipment used in sensitive environments such as daycare, K-12 and healthcare facilities.

The Institute awarded the certification for five of Da-Lite’s proprietary projection screen fabrics; High Contrast Matte White, Video Spectra 1.5, Silver Matte, Matte White and High Power. Da-Lite offers the widest range of GREENGUARD® certified fabrics that make specifying the correct screen fabric easier for architects and end-users, while observing the demand for low-emitting materials for children and schools.

The GREENGUARD® Environmental Institute (GEI) is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program, the largest independent certification program for low-emitting products. As an ANSI Authorized Standards Developer, GEI establishes acceptable indoor air standards for indoor products, environments and buildings.

The GREENGUARD® certification mark helps architects, builders, designers and specifiers identify products and materials that undergo rigorous testing and meet stringent standards for chemical emissions. The GREENGUARD® Children & Schools standard was developed by evaluating the chemical sensitivities of children and the unique building characteristics of schools, and presenting the most stringent emissions criteria to date. Da-Lite certified projection fabrics meet the criteria of CA DHS, and are specified in the USGBC’s LEED for schools Rating System, the CHPS Best Practices Manual and the Green Guide for Healthcare.

According to GEI, children in the U.S. miss over six million school days per year due to asthma alone and the U.S. EPA estimates that half of U.S. schools have indoor air quality problems. The specification and use of Da-Lite’s GREENGUARD® Certified Products attacks indoor air pollution at the source and can significantly reduce the levels of pollutants in the indoor air.

All five of the Da-Lite GREENGUARD® Certified projection screen fabrics can be found on the web at da-lite.com/products or at greenguard.org, then select either GREENGUARD® Certified Product Guide or Children & Schools Certified Product Guide and follow the prompts. Copies of the Da-Lite GREENGUARD® Certificates can be downloaded from the GREENGUARD® site for inclusion in building proposals and specifications.
