Seating Testing

Seating tests are concerned with the safety, stability and durability of products, minimising risk to the end-user and ensuring products are fit for purpose.

Test requirements vary dependent on the type and intended end use of the product. Flammability is also a legal requirement for all upholstered domestic furniture.
