VOC – volatile organic compounds
VOCs are substances that easily turn into a gas. VOCs come from a variety of sources; in outdoor environments, these include gases from biological decomposition processes and exhaust gases from industrial processes and road traffic. Sources in indoor environments include furniture, but above all products used in building shells and in interior finishing, e.g. floor, wall and ceiling materials, paints, varnishes, glues and sealants. These can all release substances that are harmful to health. Because only low-emission products ensure a safe indoor climate, Jansen exclusively uses seals and coatings for steel window, door and façade profiles that have been tested in accordance with DIN EN ISO 16000 ‘Indoor air’. In this way, we ensure that everything is just right, even on a small scale.
