Boa-Franc, North America’s most highly regarded hardwood flooring manufacturer, is pleased to announce that all Mirage Lock brand products manufactured as of May 1, 2009 will be in full compliance with Phase 1 of CARB 93120 certification and will thus meet the California Air Resource Board’s Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions.
In complying with this standard, Boa-Franc is taking another important step to fight pollution from airborne toxic substances by reducing the formaldehyde emissions of composite wood products used to manufacture its floors.
“We believe that this small gesture, important to us long before we achieved certification, will have a direct impact on the environment and the quality of air we breathe. As a leader in the hardwood flooring industry, our Mirage brand makes its efforts to protect nature one of the core priorities of its progressive approach to sustainable development,” explained Luc Robitaille, Vice President of Marketing at Boa-Franc, manufacturer of the Mirage brand.
Absolute consistency in grade, species, finish, coloring, width, and thickness guarantees that Mirage prefinished hardwood floors are smooth, uniform, easy to install, and beautiful beyond compare. Mirage also continues to take responsible, concrete action—as it has for the past 25 years—with an innovative approach to sustainable development.
