testing

Storage furniture, for example, kitchen cabinets, wardrobes, bookcases, cupboards, filing cabinets and chests of drawers, by their very nature can become extremely heavy in use. The consequences of structural failure, or the product falling over, can be very serious. The use of glass in cupboard doors is also a safety concern.

Components – Our experts have the expertise to test hinges, drawer runners, lifting systems and larger components, such as the gas lift struts used in storage beds. This gives an indication of safety, strength and durability.

Children’s Furniture - Storage furniture for schools, including book trolleys and coat hook benches are subject to more severe testing.

One of our experts will be able to advise you on the right test(s) for your product.
