While all of our countertops are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified®, EQcountertops are the first and only GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Certified laminate countertops available, meeting the most stringent emission standards.

EQcountertops assist in achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification. So, for both your commercial and residential projects, you can keep the earth green by choosing the environmentally friendly features of EQcountertops:

•  Low-emitting, water based adhesive
•  FSC® certified

A Recycled Wood Fiber, FSC® Certified Core

EQcountertops cores are made of FSC certified, 100% pre-consumer recycled particleboard, with no added urea formaldehyde, including SkyBlend cores. SkyBlend cores are tinted blue for easy identification in the field. And, by using our sustainable particleboard, you lose nothing in durability.

GREENGUARD Certified Laminates

The laminate surface of EQcountertops not only provides a durable, high-quality countertop surface, it's GREENGUARD Certified as well, which means significantly diminished harmful emissions. We proudly use certified GREENGUARD laminates from all the major brands - Formica®, Nevamar®, Pionite® and Wilsonart®.

A Safe, Superior Adhesive

EQcountertops use water-based adhesives to bond the laminate to the particleboard. These adhesives eliminate unsafe Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which helps improve indoor air quality.
