Furntech-AFRDI operates a system of quality certification for furniture and furniture components with the aim of lifting quality, strength, durability, safety, suitability for purpose and, ultimately, sustainability through increased product durability.
The Scheme is performance and test based, the criteria selected to allow manufacturers and designers as much freedom as possible to develop new products and concepts. The objective was to create a program incorporating robust performance requirements to:
highlight the best quality furniture;
give confidence to specifiers and users; and
provide suppliers and retailers with a valuable marketing tool.
