Formaldehyde Minimisation

All composite wood products – used for all the fixed furniture in the building – have been manufactured with low formaldehyde emission levels to ensure a higher level of indoor environmental quality.

Formaldehyde is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is present in substantial concentrations both indoors and outdoors. The most prevalent sources of indoor formaldehyde are construction materials and furniture products made of composite wood bonded with adhesives containing formaldehyde. Such products include plywood, particleboard and medium density fiberboard (MDF) used in furniture, cabinetry, shelving, flooring, paneling, sub-flooring and sheathing.

For this project, all composite wood products in regularly occupied spaces, which have been specified and installed, have formaldehyde limits which are lower than the prescribed allowable limits in Green Star and as per international standards. Therefore, in addition to adequate ventilation, this helps to maintain a good indoor air quality for the occupants.
