SANTAMARGHERITA surfaces contribute to keep the indoor environment quality: tested by international NSF for the use in the food industry, and for emissions in the air, they agree with the strict Greenguard criteria that certify their suitability for buildings as schools and hospitals.
They furthermore help to obtain LEED certification for sustainable buildings.
Clean air with our surfaces. SANTAMARGHERITA engineered surfaces meet the world's most rigorous and comprehensive standards by GREENGUARD Gold Indoor Air Quality program for the release of low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in indoor environments (formerly GREENGUARD Children & Schools).
Safe food on our surfaces. The NSF International certification guarantees that SM Quartz surfaces can be used in contact with food and water, as they don't release any harmful substances that can affect our health.
Sustainable buildings using our surfaces. As a member of the Green Building Council, Santa Margherita Spa promotes the LEED international building rating system (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), for sustainable building construction. This rating system is based on credits assigned to a project with specific and strict criteria. Because of its recycled content and technical features, SANTAMARGHERITA surfaces can contribute to the LEED certification of sustainable buildings for the following criteria: construction waste management, recycled content materials, regional materials, minimum energetic performance, low emission materials, and innovation in design.
SBID partner. Santa Margherita Spa is a Professional Industry Partner of The Society of British Interior Design. Based in London since 2009, SBID is the main reference organization in the UK for education, best practices and professional code of conduct development for the interior design industry.
