Are you shopping for furniture that is appropriate for an educational setting or perhaps a healthcare facility? If so, finding options that are PVC-free may be a top priority. PVC is a common abbreviation for polyvinyl chloride, a synthetic plastic polymer that is often used. Lately, there has been a focus on using only small doses of PVC due to health concerns, as high concentrations of it have been linked to incidences of cancer.
PVC-free furniture options are typically made out of polyurethane and ensure that even small doses of PVC are not present. This provides a higher level of safety that is necessary in places like schools, hospitals, clinics and other settings where children and ill individuals are present. Whereas furnishings with small amounts of PVC are usually not harmful to healthy adults, they are typically not the best option for children with under developed immune systems or for people with compromised immune systems due to illness. Furthermore, if your business or facility must meet CA standards, PVC-free furniture, like that made out of polyurethane, is a great choice. At NBF, we are proud to offer PVC-free options for our customers who need them.
