Furniture Testing

    The furniture testing sector offers the opportunity to obtain furniture quality certification by European (EN), international (ISO), and national standards. Test reports issued by the test laboratory are recognized worldwide.

    The testing laboratory has been accredited by the Latvian National Accreditation Bureau LATAK in accordance with the requirements of LVS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and has been assigned registration No. T-316.

    Accreditation certificate and scope available here.

    In the testing sector of furniture, it is possible to accomplish furniture tests not only according to European standards but also according to non-standard testing methods according to the client’s requirements.

    The Testing Laboratory can help to determine the safety of children’s furniture (e.g., cots, cradles, school furniture), domestic and non-domestic furniture (e.g., chairs, tables, different storage furniture, beds, mattresses, bunk beds) and office furniture (e.g., chairs, tables, different types of storage furniture) in use.

    In the furniture testing sector:

    • We perform furniture testing both within and outside the scope of accreditation. (Every year we expand and expand the scope of accreditation, but if the specific method is not yet accredited, we evaluate our technical capabilities and make a decision together with the client)
    • We offer to test for product design and development purposes. (Development of new products. Development of existing products. Business incubators and startups. These and many other cases are feasible through indicative testing.)
    • We perform durability, static and other types of tests on various types of furniture and equivalent products.
    • We help to plan and implement an inspection program in non-standard cases, according to our technical capabilities and competence. (There are times when an innovative product does not have the appropriate standards to evaluate it. Then there is nothing left but to use our knowledge, expertise and technical capabilities to evaluate the product)
    • Consulting and assessment of children’s playgrounds. (When creating active toys or playgrounds, it is valuable when the product created is evaluated by an independent body and the shortcomings are pointed out before the product is produced)

    The following product groups we test most often:

    • Children furniture
    • Home Furniture
    • Furniture for public use
    • Outdoor furniture
    • Office furniture
