Fire testing – furniture and beds

There are many standards relating to the fire resistance and behaviour of loose furnishings, such as upholstered furniture and beds: exactly which standards in particular apply in any given case depends on where the products are to be sold and used. Requirements differ, for example, between Sweden and the rest of Europe, the UK (which has the strictest requirements in Europe), and the USA. There are also specific sector requirements in areas such as maritime, trains and the automotive industry.

We carry out fire testing in accordance with the services (standards) as shown on the right.  Click the links on the right for more detailed information.  We also perform custom tests for special cases, and according to standards other than those shown on the right.  Please contact us for further information.
