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.

Available on all Versa designs, Permavent enhances the breathability of our wallcoverings. The microventing technology from LSI is engineered for humid environments and areas where moisture management is a challenge.
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® is the first program to reclaim and recycle vinyl wallcovering. Launched by LSI Wallcovering in 2007, Second-Look has recycled enough wallcovering to span the distance from New York to Paris. The wide-ranging program offers hundreds of selections, all with a minimum of 20% recycled content. These wallcoverings are low-VOC, use water-based inks and adhesives, and are certified to NSF/ANSI 342. Second-Look has been recognized with five A&D industry awards including: Most Sustainable Gold Product Award from IIDEX/NeoCon Canada, Most Sustainable Product Award from the Healthcare Facilities Symposium, Innovations Environmental Grand Prize from Buildings magazine, and Editor’s Choice Awards from Architectural Record and Interiors & Sources.
