Fostoria, Ohio—Two other products from Roppe Corporation have been certified as Greenguard Gold by Underwriters Laboratory. The US-made Roppe Pinnacle Rubber Base and Pinnacle Plus, the profile version of the well-known Pinnacle PVC-free base formulation, are now certified. According to the company, in order to gain certification, its products have undergone extensive certification assessment and chemical emissions analysis. The Greenguard Gold certification must be renewed annually.
“We are pleased that two more of our products have been assessed and certified under the Greenguard Gold process,” said Jeff Trattner, vice president of marketing at Roppe Holding Company. “This certification adds value to our product portfolio and gives commercial interior designers and building owners peace of mind that our products are designed to create healthier indoor environments.”
