The Necessity of Furniture Testing Labs
As part of the services offered by our consumer product testing division, Applied Technical Services performs furniture testing in our advanced labs. Strategically testing furniture products is the only way to gain full confidence in their safety, performance, and quality over time. When designing furniture, factors taken into consideration by manufacturers include the chemicals used in manufacturing, resistance to environmental abuse, and mechanical safety hazards.
ATS Consumer Product Testing — Furniture Testing Capabilities
Furniture components, especially those used outdoors, can be subjected to a range of environmental conditions that can drastically reduce their service life. Even indoor furniture can be exposed to UV radiation through windows. ATS’ labs are fully equipped to test furniture’s resistance to humidity, UV exposure from sunlight, flammability, and other environmental stresses in our specialized and climatic test chambers. Environmental testing allows companies to take the guesswork out of manufacturing robust products.
Furniture manufacturers can have ATS mechanically test their products to determine their stability, structural integrity, injury hazard, and other characteristics. For instance, large furniture pieces are often tested for tip-over tendency so as to avoid posing a serious safety risk to children. Our mechanical testing lab offers numerous tests that can accommodate a range of furniture types and sizes.
