Seating - American standards
ANSI and BIFMA
The ANSI/BIFMA Standards differ from British and European Standards, defining specific tests, equipment to be used, conditions of the test, and minimum acceptance levels to be used in evaluating products.
Our experts can test the safety and performance of domestic and contract seating to various American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) Standards. We have a range of specific equipment solely built for these tests to ensure accuracy.
Testing to ANSI / BIFMA standards will be compulsory if exporting to the US (other countries may also request this testing).
