SGS Galson loaned a ppbRAE VOC monitor from its equipment rental inventory to help train interior design students at the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s School of Art + Design in Newark, New Jersey. Colden Corporation, an SGS Galson client, brought the monitor to the school’s Methods and Materials class led by Interior Design Program Coordinator David Brothers, where students compete in ranking VOC emissions from building products using the photoionization detector. The course covers sustainability of material selection and use, code requirements and life safety, specification, installation, and performance of materials, including fabrics and textiles. Pictured with the students (front left) is Colden’s Catherine Bobenhausen who coaches third-year students for the competition in material health.
The equipment rental program offers a full spectrum of Industrial Hygiene, Health & Safety equipment and comes with the equipment settings preset, free return shipping label (Continental US only) and 24/7/365 access to technical support.
