April 21st, 2021 09:00

RESET is proud to announce the achievement of RESET Air Certification for Commercial Interiors (v2.0) for Vertex Shanghai Office.

Vertex is a proud member of HMTX Industries - a global materials manufacturer whose brands service a diverse cross-section of the construction marketplace. Vertex is the supply chain foundation of the HMTX family of companies. As a leading supplier of Rigid Core LVT flooring, Vertex has shown leadership in innovation, sustainability and transparency.

In order to better understand and manage the air quality in their office, Vertex initially leveraged the RESET Air Standard for evaluation and reference with the goal of achieving RESET Air Certification.

Vertex Shanghai Office has deployed RESET Accredited indoor air quality monitors according to the RESET Air Standard requirements. The project adjusted the office's ventilation systems based on the data collected by the indoor air quality monitors to optimize the air quality in their office.

Throughout the required three-month data audit phase, the project had to demonstrate the ability to maintain IAQ within the thresholds required by the RESET Air Standard. Vertex Shanghai Office has been awarded with RESET Air Certification for Commercial Interior (v2.0) on the April of 2021.

Air quality indicators and thresholds for RESET Air Commercial Interior (v2.0) include:

The above air quality indicators and thresholds are based on industry best-practices and international standards. Targets are requisite for the projects pursuing RESET Air Certification. Additionally, temperature and relative humidity are continuously monitored, although no specific thresholds are prescribed.

After obtaining RESET Air certification, the project must maintain these thresholds in order to keep its certification status. Air quality data is collected via air quality monitors and evaluated daily by the RESET Assessment Cloud. Additionally, air data must share with project occupants to foster education and promote social equity.
