​Latest standards resource from FIRA

The latest quarterly 'Standards Update' from the Furniture Industry Research Association is now available to members.

The 14 page document covers new and revised standards being published, along with significant developments relating to standards under revision, largely stemming from a series of European committee meetings held late in 2016 and early this year.

Areas addressed in the update include non-domestic storage, non-domestic tables and desks, office seating / non-domestic seating, office desking, educational furniture, ranked seating, beds, bunk and high beds, domestic seating, kitchens, outdoor furniture, children's furniture, hardware, surface finishes and finger entrapment.

FIRA members can access the 'Quarterly Standards Update Report' here.
