What’s the ISO rating?
When you’re checking out products and labels in the showroom, find the ISO rating. You can ask a salesperson to tell you what the laminate’s ISO rating is if you can’t see it. Good-quality materials are rated 9001. Many people shopping for home design materials care deeply about the environment. You can check for an environmental ISO rating of 14001 which ensures that your material is up to the most stringent environmental standards.
NALFA Certification Seal
Laminate flooring is a robust, affordable and beautiful product, but quality and testing vary. To ensure you’re considering materials that are proven to be high quality, look for a NALFA Certification Seal. NALFA stands for The North American Laminate Flooring Association. They certify laminates by carrying out 10 quality-assurance tests which include water resistance, stain resistance, and resistance to various forms of stress. Anything that your busy home and life could throw at those boards, you’ll know has already been applied, and they passed the test.
