NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Certification
Versa Wallcovering is the first commercial wallcovering brand to be certified to the NSF/ANSI 342 Sustainability Standard for Wallcovering. This multi-attribute, third-party standard evaluates the wallcovering over its life cycle, from raw material extraction through end-of-life. Versa’s operations and products were evaluated in six key areas – Product Design, Product Manufacturing, Long Term Value, End of Life Management, Corporate Governance and Innovation. All Versa wallcoverings are certified. Specifiers should also verify distributor certification as NSF/ANSI 342 requires both manufacturers and distributors to be certified.

The Versa Advantage
Versa Wallcovering, manufactured by LSI Wallcovering, is the first commercial vinyl wallcovering to offer NSF certification. This comprehensive multi-attribute sustainability program leads the industry. Versa wallcoverings are manufactured with an environmentally preferable non-ortho phthalate, are low VOC and are recyclable through the Second-Look reclamation program. They do not use solvent inks or heavy metals. LSI Wallcovering, manufacturer of the Versa brand, has been bringing sustainable, cost-effective, well-designed wallcoverings to the market for over 30 years.
Second-Look® Recycling Program
Second-Look is the first recycling program for post-consumer vinyl wallcovering. Launched in 2007, Second-Look won 5 industry awards. The program retrieves vinyl wallcovering of any make and close-loop recycles it into new Versa wallcoverings with 20% recycled content. Second-Look has recycled more than 550,000 linear yards or 687,500 pounds of post-consumer wallcovering to date. The program is easy to use. When you order new wallcovering, Second-Look even covers the freight of reclaimed material to its recycling center in New Castle, Indiana.
