Alongside structural tests, our team assess individual components as these are critical to product safety and performance.

Children’s beds often include additional features which require further assessment to ensure no safety risk is posed to the child.

We’re UKAS accredited to test domestic and commercial:

  • Bedsteads, divans, bunk beds, cots, children’s beds, hotel beds
  • Mattresses, including performance, checking for sagging / weak mattress walls
  • Flammability (this is a legal requirement), including mattresses, headboards, foams, fibres, fillings
  • Components, including springs, toppers, headboards, foams
