Product certificates


Products that carry the eco-INSTITUT label are reliably low in emissions (outgassing) and harmful ingredients and are the first choice for health-conscious consumers when making their purchase decision. These products can be used without restriction in construction and renovation projects and for furnishing living and working spaces. eco-certified products are preferred by responsible architects and building project planners in national and international construction projects.

The eco-INSTITUT is one of the most experienced German laboratories for indoor air analysis. As early as the 1980s, it recognised the connection between good quality indoor air and the health and well-being of people - after all, people in this country spend up to 90 percent of their lives in enclosed spaces.

DIBt - Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik

As the German approval body, Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt) issues general technical approvals (abZ) for construction products and types of construction, it further issues European Technical Assessments (ETA) for construction products and kits (until 30.06.2013 issue of European technical approvals). Anyone who wants to build in Germany (whether new construction, conversion, renovation, etc.) must use materials that have been approved by Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik.


The CE marking is the external sign that a product complies with the European Union requirements imposed on the manufacturer (the letters CE were originally derived from "Communautés Européennes"). By affixing the CE marking, the manufacturer confirms on his own responsibility that his products fulfil all the conditions required by law for the CE marking, thus ensuring that the products may be sold within the European Economic Area EEA, which includes all EU member states and the EFTA member states Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein, as well as in Turkey. This also applies to products manufactured in third countries and sold within the EEA and Turkey.

PEFC PEFC ist die Abkürzung für die englische Bezeichnung "Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes", also ein "Programm für die Anerkennung von Forstzertifizierungssystemen". PEFC heißt, Produkte aus nachhaltiger Waldbewirtschaftung zu kaufen. Mit Ihrer Entscheidung für Produkte, die das PEFC-Siegel tragen, setzen Sie ein Zeichen für den Wald und die Erhaltung des nachwachsenden Rohstoffes Holz: Sie helfen, einen artenreichen, gesunden und produktiven Wald langfristig zu erhalten.
Real Wood

The "Real Wood" seal is an award of the FEP (European Federation of the Parquet Industry) and represents the leading manufacturers of parquet floors in Europe. It thus identifies parquet floors made from real wood. There is a danger of confusion in parquet flooring, especially between real wood parquet and laminate floors with wood decor. Laminate flooring is NOT made from real wood, but from fibre-reinforced plastics and therefore has neither the building biology and health properties of real wood, nor can it be sanded down or renovated. /

Naturl-ßl Vorgeölte Oberfläche und Endfertig geölte Oberfläche

Our in-house natural oil awards identify all natural wood floors that have been finished with a natural oil surface. "Naturally oiled" means that the individual parquet planks dry out slowly in air without artificial influences after the oil application, which means that the wood pores are saturated very intensively and the surface becomes particularly hard-wearing. In contrast to sealed parquet floors, naturally oiled wooden floors can have a positive influence on the room climate, as they absorb and release moisture, are easy to care for, and regenerate. In addition, wooden floors with a natural oil surface are antistatic and particularly suitable for those suffering from allergies. A large part of our product range already offers a ready-to-use oiled surface and does not need to be finished after installation.

Cfl-s1 Brandschutz Dfl-s1 Brandschutz

The regulation of fire safety regulations includes seven classes for floor coverings (A1FL, A2FL, BFL, CFL, DFL, EFL and FFL). The "Cfl-s1" classification distinguishes all flame-retardant building products and is comparable to the B1 classification (flammability: B1 = very limited contribution to fire). The "s1" also means that hardly any smoke develops in case of fire. The classification "Dfl-s1" stands for "normally flammable, low smoke" and is comparable with the B2 classification.
