Torrance, CA – March 09, 2010 - Stewart Filmscreen Corporation®, the industry leader in precision projection screen technologies for residential and commercial markets, receives GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM Certification for framing systems and materials.
The GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification indicates that a product has met the highest standards for clean indoor air and contributes to healthy work, home, school and other indoor environments. GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification establishes strict chemical emission limits to define low-emitting materials for environments where people spend an extended period of time. Children, in particular, are vulnerable to airborne toxins, as they have higher inhalation rates per pound of body weight than adults.
GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by a number of "green" building programs, including the United States Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED® Rating System. The
not-for-profit GREENGUARD Environmental Institute oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Programs and establishes acceptable indoor standards for indoor products, environments and buildings.

We have won numerous awards over our past 62 years of service to the audio-visual industry, but one of the awards we are most proud of is the one we won in 2005 for manufacturing our products responsibly.
