Last year, I introduced you to SGS’ flammability test laboratory in Leicester. This year I wanted to add to the list of tests which are routinely undertaken by the lab… not just for the importers and manufacturers of furniture but also for the supply chain which supports them.

Stretched Fabric Weave

In the original article (here), I mentioned the tests conducted on the fabrics and fillings of upholstered furniture, but I didn’t stress that the foam and fillings suppliers and importers can also use SGS’ services by getting their materials tested and certified as compliant to the UK Furniture and Furnishings (Fire)(Safety) Regulations. In this way furniture, cushion and mattress makers can buy-in fillings which they know will be compliant and the suppliers of these fillings can have the assurance of independent, third party testing.

If it’s mattress testing you need, look no further - SGS in Leicester can test to BS 7177 as well.

When you need to be sure… choose SGS.

If you need information on flammability regulations in the UK, in the EU and beyond (such as the USA, Canada or China) we can help as well. With contacts around the globe, SGS Leicester is a one-stop-shop for all your needs.
