Performance Testing Standards and List of Approved Testing Facilities

Performance Testing Standards and List of Testing Facilities

Prior to earning the NALFA Certification Seal, laminate floors must pass a series of 14 rigorous performance tests. An independent laboratory completes the testing and submits the results to the NALFA board for final approval. Only then may a product bear the certification seal.

Want to know more? NALFA has now made our NALFA ANSI Product Standards, NALFA ANSI Sustainabilty Standard, and the NALFA ANSI Underlayment standards available to download for free. Follow this link to obtain them. Contact Lyndsey Campbell at admin@nalfa.com for any questions.

Prior to a product receiving the NALFA certification seal, a sample must be sent to an approved testing facility where procedures are strictly specified for accurate examination. The file below contains a list of known laboratories that can test to the NALFA/ANSI Standard. NALFA does not endorse particular labs nor warrant their performance. Laminate manufacturers should exercise their own business discretion in selecting a lab. Laboratories wishing to be added to our list should contact info@nalfa.com.
