E-1: The European Formaldehyde and Toxic Gas Emission Standard

Many of the products offered by Haiku Designs have been awarded the “E-1” rating for furniture manufacturing, the highest rating available. This rating system, created by the European Union in Brussels, is a very stringent rating system for furniture products. This system rates furniture according to the number of chemicals used in the manufacturing process, the degree of dangerous off-gassing of formaldehyde and other toxic gasses, and the source of base materials used.

E-1 Rating

Each product is then assigned a rating with “E-0” being the best rating with ultra-low off-gassing and “E-5” being the worst with significant off-gassing. The E-1 standard is the second highest rating possible with ultra-low off-gassing.
