VIGO Product Certifications
There are a number of voluntary and mandatory certifications instituted by governmental agencies to keep your kitchens and bathrooms safe and energy efficient. VIGO Industries takes steps every day to meet and exceed all of the necessary requirements.
All certifications on VIGO products are received after being tested and approved by IAPMO (International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials) or other required sources. After they are tested for qualities such as strength, durability, toxicity, efficiency and component and material make-up, the products receive the appropriate certification and are ready to be put on the market.
Below are the certifications that can be found on VIGO products along with a brief description of the certification:
AB1953 is a standard that requires “lead-free plumbing.” Lead-free is defined as products that have been verified with weighted average lead content that is less than or equal to 0.25%, and solder and flux lead content less than or equal to 0.2%.
NSF-61 is a standard created by the National Sanitation Foundation to regulate the impurities that a faucet (and other products) can introduce into the water supply, specifically the metal components.
NSF-372 is also a standard created by the National Sanitation Foundation to regulate the impurities that a faucet (and other products) can introduce into the water supply, specifically the plastic components.
WaterSense is a non-mandatory compliancy act that requires bathroom sink faucets to use a maximum water flow of 1.5 gallons per minute to conserve water.
cUPC stands for Uniform Plumbing Code certified in the US and Canada (The ‘c’ stands for Canada). These are requirements that cover the durability, strength and weighted longevity of bathroom and kitchen products.
CAL Green is a mandatory green building code in California that, among other things, requires plumbing fixtures to reduce the overall use of potable (drinking) water by at least 20%.
ADA is a compliancy created as a result of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which requires, among other things, that products are easily accessible by people with disabilities.
ANSI Z97.1 is a certification from the American National Standards Institute for glass that says it can withstand a certain amount of weight and impact without defect.
UL Compliance is a certification issued by UL, a widely recognized independent safety science company, to ensure that an electronic component has passed certain safety and sustainability tests. For VIGO, this applies to the ballast and lighting on some of our mirrors.
CARB Compliant is a certification given by the California Air Resource Board to ensure air quality. All VIGO vanities have this certification, so in our case, it means that there is no formaldehyde used in any of our vanity materials.
