LEED Points For Classroom Furniture

To help schools receive points toward their [LEED] certification, Worthington Direct (http://www.worthingtondirect.com/) offers Smith System classroom furniture. One requirement on the LEED for Schools Rating System is the use of low emitting materials in construction and furnishings. Smith System furniture like the Smith System Single Planner Student Desk and the Smith System Mobile Pedestal help schools meet this LEED requirement. The purpose of using low emitting materials is to reduce the quantity of indoor air contaminants that are odorous, irritating and/or harmful to the comfort and well-being of installers and occupants.
