  • We can test all types of domestic and contract seating including upholstery, office chairs, high chairs, stadium chairs and outdoor chairs. This includes tests to all the main British, European, International and American seating standards.

    Tests we perform include stability, safety and durability, all within our UKAS-accredited lab. Our experts can also assess for finger entrapment, which is key in seating with moving parts – such as office chairs, stadium seating and garden chairs.

    Furthermore our UKAS-accredited flammability lab with four testing chambers carries out foam, filling and upholstery testing. We also hold UKAS-accreditation across all types of textile testing including tests for colour fastness, pilling and strength.

    Different tests apply for domestic and contract chairs and seating. One of our experts will be able to advise you on the right test(s) for your product, whether it be the entire chair or seat, or a component. Contact us
