ProTowels & Kanata Blanket Company are dedicated to the safety and integrity of our products. We are committed to offering quality items in the Promotional Products industry while either meeting or exceeding established standards in regards to safety and compliance.

ProTowels & Kanata work diligently with our suppliers and require annual testing of our product and supplies. Based on information and testing results provided by our suppliers we are confident that all of our inks, threads, and products meet all requirements established as acceptable levels by the government in regards to lead and heavy metal. We can also state that NO heavy metals (Lead, Chromium VI, Mercury, Nickel, and Cadmium) are intentionally added in the manufacturing of our supplies or products.

CPSIA

In regards to mandatory testing required by the CPSIA, our towels and blankets are considered to be exempt to testing. This exemption is found under Section D Line item 7. Section D states that “certain products, by their nature, will never exceed the lead content limit so those products do not need to be tested and do not need certificates to show that they comply with the law.” We are however required to have our inks and threads tested for content. We have on record, testing results from accredited labs that provide information showing that our products (inks / threads) used in decorating are safe for users.

CAN/CGSB
For products entering Canada we test annually against CAN/CGSB standards in addition to the testing done as part of CPSIA. We have on record, testing results from accredited labs that provide information showing that our products (inks / threads) used in decorating are safe for users.

Prop 65

In regards to Prop 65, we have on record, testing results from accredited labs that provides information showing that our products (inks / threads) used in decorating are safe for users. As stated above our products themselves (towels, robes, blankets, throws/tapestry) are exempt from lead testing due to the materials they are constructed from. It is known that “certain products, by their nature, will never exceed the lead content limit so those products do not need to be tested and do not need certificates to show that they comply with the law.” (Section D Line item 7)
