Furniture Testing for Durability and Performance
Intertek’s array of furniture testing for durability and performance will help evaluate the quality and life-cycle of your furniture.
Although most furniture testing for durability and performance is entirely voluntary in many markets, it allows manufacturers to have third-party validation of their brand.
Performance testing to national, international or industry standards gives you a competitive edge and adds value to your products. You can gain confidence in knowing how your product stacks up against the competition. Durability testing evaluates how well a product holds up when put to the test beyond its expected or designated function. We provide testing for furnishing fabrics, filling materials, furniture components and more.
