New Guide for glass in furniture published
FIRA-FRQG G0001: 2017 - The Furniture Retail Quality Group. Best Practice Guide. Glass in Furniture – Requirements, is an update on the original 2012 version of the guide.
The Guide has been developed in conjunction with the Furniture Retail Quality Group, whose members include technologists from many of the leading UK furniture retailers.
Glass is a product with some inherent risks associated with it, and the guide specifies requirements that go beyond current European Standard requirements, and are heavily based on withdrawn British Standards. The latest version updates a number of references to standards that have been updated in recent years, as well as adding more requirements around warnings and information relating to glass failures in the field.
