Environmental Product Passport
The GREENGUARD label for indoor air quality recognises products that contribute to the creation of healthier indoor environments.
With the GS seal for tested safety, a state-authorised inspection institute certifies the suitability and safety of the construction and monitors production at regular intervals.
The 'Ergonomics Approved' certificate confirms the fulfilment of ergonomic requirements and testing criteria that exceed the minimum legal regulations for office swivel chairs.
Tyde 2 fulfils the ANSI/BIFMA standard X5.1-2011, thus meeting the stringent safety requirements for the US market.
An EPD – environmental product declaration – provides transparency about the environmental impacts of a product throughout its life cycle, often referred to as life cycle assessment (LCA).
Alternating between sitting and standing while working on the computer has proven to have health benefits, in contrast to just sitting. However, when planning office environments to suit contemporary work concepts, compromises are often necessary. This is not the case with Tyde 2: the sit-stand table system offers multiple configuration and equipment options, making everything possible from a single desk to a large bench. Single desks, double clusters and conference tables can be transformed into platforms, offering solutions for concentrated tasks, dynamic teamwork and meetings. And Tyde 2 fulfils a key requirement of modern workplaces: configurations can be easily adapted to changing situations and needs. Tyde 2 is characterised by clean lines combined with rounded contours, giving even expansive structures an understated aesthetic. Cable management is neat and orderly thanks to a cable channel and other electrification features. Additional elements and accessories, such as lamp holders, monitor arms or screens can be freely positioned and attached using the sophisticated Tyde 2 bracket system. The table system comes in a choice of materials, making Tyde 2 a suitable addition to diverse settings. And the use of polyester fleece for the cable tray under the table top helps reduce noise in open-plan environments – particularly in combination with acoustic screens.
