MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis.—Bradley’s complete line of solid plastic Lenox® Lockers and Mills® Restroom Partitions made of phenolic, steel, laminate and plastic materials have received GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification and GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification from the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute. Bradley has received GREENGUARD certification for the manufactured end products in the bathroom products category (partitions and lockers), not just an individual material used in the production process.
This achievement confirms that Bradley’s Lenox Lockers and Restroom Partitions are making a significant contribution to indoor air quality by meeting strict chemical and particle emission standards. Bradley’s Terreon solid surface and TerreonRE recycled solid surface and Evero natural quartz material are also GREENGUARD-certified.
The GREENGUARD Certification Program is an industry-accepted, independent, third-party testing program for low-emitting products and materials, while the GREENGUARD Children & Schools standard evaluates the sensitive nature of school populations combined with the unique building characteristics found in schools. In addition, sustainable building programs, such as Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) for Schools, recognize and reference GREENGUARD Certification.
“By meeting the product criteria for GREENGUARD Certification, Bradley continues to reinforce its long-standing commitment to manufacture innovative restroom and locker room products that are environmentally friendly for indoor applications,” says Kris Alderson, senior marketing manager, Bradley Corp. “We are excited that both product lines meet GREENGUARD Certification standards through and through—including both the product materials and the end products.”
Lenox Lockers are made from solid high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic, which remains unaffected by moisture, making them rust-resistant. In addition to being odor-resistant, the lockers are designed to withstand impact, dents and scratches that would easily damage metal lockers. Dirt, grime, spray paint and markers are simply wiped away with standard cleaning products and the lockers never need to be repainted.
Mills partitions are available in five materials, including Bradmar. Bradmar solid plastic partitions are ideal for high-traffic, moist and wet environments because they won’t rust, dent or absorb odors. Bradmar is solid, one-inch thick 30 percent pre-consumer or 100 percent post-consumer recycled HDPE plastic. Because the color goes all the way through the material, it will never need painting and scratches can be easily repaired. Bradmar Partitions are highly impact resistant, so dents and broken doors are virtually eliminated, and graffiti can be easily wiped away.
