WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
ADVANCED FIXTURES, INC. PURCHASES 100% CPA-CERTIFIED EPP PANELS. THIS CERTIFICATION HAS A TWO-FOLD MEANING:

FIRST: PARTICLEBOARD AND MDF PRODUCTS PURCHASED BY ADVANCED FIXTURES, INC. ARE PRODUCED IN A FACILITY LICENSED UNDER THE NEW COMPOSITE PANEL ASSOCIATION'S (CPA) ENVIRONMENTALLY PREFERRED PRODUCT (EPP) DOWNSTREAM PROGRAM USING 100% RECYCLED OR RECOVERED WOOD PRODUCT.

COMPOSITE WOOD PANELS MADE FROM RECYCLED WOOD AND WOOD RESIDUALS THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE WASTED OR END UP IN LANDFILLS TAKE LESS ENERGY TO MAKE THAN OTHER BUILDING MATERIALS AND PRODUCE FEWER HARMFUL BY-PRODUCTS.

THEY CAN BE REUSED OR LEFT TO BIODEGRADE NATURALLY WHEN THEIR SERVICE IS DONE.

SECOND: COMPOSITE WOOD PANELS PURCHASED BY ADVANCED FIXTURES, INC. MEET STRINGENT FORMALDEHYDE EMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS ESTABLISHED BY THE CALIFORNIA AIR RESOURCES BOARD (CARB). PHASE 2 STANDARDS ARE NOW IN EFFECT LIMITING EMISSIONS TO .09 ppm FOR PARTICLEBOARD AND .11 ppm FOR MDF. THIS MEASURE WILL SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE PUBLIC EXPOSURE TO FORMALDEHYDE, RELATED ASTHMA AND THE RISK OF GETTING CANCER.
