All Strong needle felt carpets meet class 33 classifications and carry the „pollutant-tested carpeting“ seal of the GUT provided by the Association of Environmentally Friendly Carpets e.V. (Gemeinshaft umweltfreundlicher Teppichboden e.V.). Each needle felt Strong quality has a GUT test number. The aim of GUT is to ensure improved environmental and consumer protection aspects throughout the life cycle of a textile floor covering. GUT constantly conducts product audits and annual verification tests with manufacturers based on the latest scientific findings to monitor compliance with the GUT criteria. Only products that meet the strict GUT criteria receive the GUT label with the test number. In cooperation with GUT, its logo confirms that all criteria for an environmentally friendly needle felt floor covering are met. The registration number indicates that the product is registered in the PRODIS system. PRODIS is the first consumer information system, which not only provides information on environmental and safety aspects, but also includes the quality and utility features of carpets.
