Dansk Wilton secures a healthy indoor climate
All Axminster and Colortec carpets from Dansk Wilton have been tested and awarded the A+ rating for their very low VOC emission levels. Build-up of VOC’s in indoor environments have often been associated with “sick building syndrome” causing a bad indoor environment. High quality carpets from Dansk Wilton are your guarantee for a healthy indoor climate.

Wool carpets are naturally non-allergenic
Carpets from Dansk Wilton naturally absorb and filter airborne VOCs – unwanted toxins and odours that can cause irritation to humans. Wool carpets bind the allergy-causing substances tightly. Tests showed that indoor air in a carpeted room contained less than half the amount of fine particulate dust than the smooth floors. Some of the common sources of negative VOC’s in the indoor environments are adhesives, caulking compounds, chemicals and other substances used in the production of common carpets.

What is this VOC labeling?
The purpose of this French VOC labeling is to clearly inform consumers about the volatile organic compounds emitted by the products after 28 days of testing. The eleven volatile pollutants considered are: formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, toluene, tetrachlorethylene, xylene, 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene, 1,4-dichlorobenzene, ethylbenzene, 2-butoxyethanol, styrene and total volatile organic compounds.

Choosing a product classified as A+ leads to improved indoor air quality
as it emits very few or even no VOCs:
Class A+ : very low emissions of pollutants
Class A : weak emissions of pollutants
Class B : average emissions of pollutants
Class C : strong emissions of pollutants
