HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., May 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Serta, the largest mattress producer in the United States, today announced that the flexible polyurethane foam contained in all of its mattresses manufactured in the United States and Canada are now certified through the CertiPUR-US®-certification program.
CertiPUR-US is a not-for-profit certification program for flexible polyurethane foam used in bedding and upholstered furniture. Certified foams meet rigorous standards for content, emissions and durability, and are analyzed by independent, accredited testing laboratories.
For consumers, having certified foam in their mattresses and foundations adds a level of comfort and peace of mind that the foam meets the high standards set by the CertiPUR-US program.
Certified foams are made without ozone depleters; PBDE, TDCPP, TCEP and certain other flame retardants; formaldehyde; mercury, lead and other heavy metals; prohibited phthalates regulated by the CPSC; and are low VOC emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million). Complete details about the certification are available at www.certipur.us/for-consumers.
"Consumers can rest confidently, knowing that all Serta mattresses and foundations that are available for purchase in stores and online today contain flexible polyurethane foam that is certified," said Andrew Gross, senior vice president of marketing for Serta. "The comfort of our customers has always been paramount and today comfort goes beyond physical properties to include feeling good about the products we bring into our homes."
"Consumers interest in certified foam for bedding and upholstered furniture has risen dramatically in recent years, and Serta's participation in the program is a huge milestone for the program as a whole," said executive director of the CertiPUR-US® program, Mike Crowell.
