Dickson Constant is an ISO-certified company and its environmentally responsible products have been awarded the OEKO-TEX label.
An accredited and independent body conducts a certification renewal audit of Dickson Constant every year.
ISO 45001 - Occupational Health and Safety
ISO 45001 is an international standard intended to improve the health and safety of employees in the workplace. The awarding of this new ISO standard recognizes Dickson’s efforts over two decades to anticipate risks and implement demanding procedures. This new, internationally recognized standard expires after three years and is renewable for the same period.
Dickson does everything possible to reduce workplace risks by providing better and safer working conditions. A risk inventory formalized in a shared document is among the key measures taken to achieve this.
ISO 9001 - Quality Management
ISO 9001 specifies requirements for a quality management system. Increased customer satisfaction and a quality approach for each product line are among the key challenges addressed by Dickson. This standard guarantees customers consistent, high-quality products and services, and good commercial benefits. ISO 9001 certification is also intended to increase customer satisfaction based on continuous improvement of the system.
Our products are laboratory-tested to guarantee their quality and technical performance.
ISO 14001 - Environmental Management
It is now essential to take into account environmental factors in the product manufacturing process. ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for developing and maintaining an environmental management system.
ISO 14001- Energy Management
Dickson works to increase its energy efficiency by implementing such actions as the monthly monitoring of our energy consumption in order to reduce our ecological footprint.
GREENGUARD certification, issued by UL Environment, guarantees that products designed for interior spaces are certified for low chemical emissions and contribute to the creation of healthier indoor environments.
GREENGUARD GOLD offers even stricter certification criteria and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in sensitive environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
Our SWK6 and SWK15 screen fabrics and the Sunbrella upholstery collection are certified GREENGUARD GOLD as meeting the toughest VOC emissions criteria and ensuring the highest level of health for people occupying rooms.
Our screen fabrics are therefore eligible for credits within the LEED and BREEAM evaluation systems for buildings, and many other sustainable construction programs.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX is one of the most demanding labels for raw, semi-finished and finished textiles tested for harmful substances. It tests all textile articles at each processing stage and every single component and ingredient.
The chemical components of fabrics are certified compliant with REACH standards, and therefore harmless in human ecological terms. Dickson fabrics comply with these standards.
Various ranges are certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX, including the Orchestra range for our awning fabrics and the Sunbrella ranges for our upholstery fabrics.
Dickson has been awarded STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certification for one year. Renewal of certification is based on an annual audit and random sampling by an IFTH-accredited laboratory to make sure fabrics still fulfil the requirements.
Our accredited fabrics are Class II-certified, and therefore adapted to contact with the skin.
