The Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association recently welcomed SelecTech into the fold as a full-fledged member. Currently, SelecTech represents the only flooring company in SEFA, which boasts a membership of individuals and companies from all over the world.
Part of our interest in being a SEFA member is being involved with an organization that sets the standard for lab requirements. For example, a
s a flooring company, we abide by the Scientific Equipment & Furniture Association SEFA 8-M-2010 Recommended Practices For Metal Laboratory Grade Furniture, Casework, Shelving and Tables.
In that document, SEFA lists the 49 chemicals recommended to test for on lab furniture, casework, shelving and tables. A chemical that can splash on the floor as easily as any of those surfaces, right? But does that mean you have to test your flooring for all 49 chemicals?
“Yes and no,” said Tom Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc.. “It really depends on your comfort level and current and future work being done in your lab. If you think it’s possible your floor could be exposed to a chemical now or down the road, test for it.”
Being a SEFA member means we're on the cutting edge of the lab and lab furniture world and that enhances our ability to better serve our lab customers.
