What is non-domestic furniture flammability testing?

As a retailer selling non-domestic furniture within the UK, you need to ensure that your products comply with the flammability standards regarding non-domestic furniture.

Products such as office furniture, contract furniture, hospitality furniture all fall under the non-domestic umbrella; however testing is carried out on each individual component, rather than the product as a whole.

Non-domestic furniture flammability testing applies to the following furniture components:

  • Outer covers (leather and textile)
  • Foams and fillings
  • Non-visible covers
  • Interliners


Why test your non-domestic furniture for flammability?

It is a legal requirement within the UK that all non-domestic furniture is compliant with BS 7176 before being eligible for sale.
