Proposition 65

At Keilhauer, we take the health and safety of our employees and customers very seriously. As a family owned business, we have always prioritized the health of our employees, clients, and the environment.

Proposition 65, officially named the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, was passed into law in 1986 by the state of California with the original intent of protecting drinking water sources from chemical contamination. The law demands that any commercial products that cause exposure to a list of 800+ ingredients and chemicals must be labelled as potentially causing cancer or reproductive harm.

Keilhauer has worked closely with our suppliers and partners to ensure that any materials found in our assortment do not require Prop 65 warning labels. However, if customers shipping to the state of California wish to use their own vinyl on Keilhauer furniture, we must apply the following Prop 65 label to the finished product:

Prop 65 label Aug 2018

If your vinyl does not include vinyl chloride or any other chemical on the Prop 65 list, you may provide us with testing results or fabric composition so that we may refrain from applying the label. For more information on Prop 65, please visit
