Welcome to CDG Laboratory, where we take pride in offering comprehensive RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) testing services. Our specialized RoHS testing service focuses on the ignitability assessment of upholstered furniture, ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations. In this detailed service page, we will explore the significance of RoHS testing, the specific standard related to the ignitability of upholstered furniture, the requirements set forth by the standard, and CDG’s expertise in conducting these crucial tests.
Understanding RoHS Testing
RoHS testing, in general, is a critical component of regulatory compliance in various industries. The RoHS directive restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment to protect human health and the environment. However, in the context of upholstered furniture, RoHS testing takes on a different aspect, focusing on the ignitability of materials used in furniture construction.
Standard: Ignitability of Upholstered Furniture
Overview of the Standard
The specific standard governing the ignitability assessment of upholstered furniture is BS 5852:2006 – Methods of Test for Assessment of the Ignitability of Upholstered Seating by Smouldering and Flaming Ignition Sources. This British Standard provides detailed procedures for testing the ignitability of seating furniture when exposed to smouldering and flaming ignition sources.
Requirements of BS 5852:2006
BS 5852:2006 outlines rigorous testing methods to evaluate the ignitability of various components of upholstered furniture. The standard addresses both smouldering and flaming ignition sources, simulating real-world scenarios where furniture might be exposed to different types of fires. The key requirements of the standard include:
- Smouldering Ignition Test: This assesses the resistance of upholstery materials to ignition caused by smouldering sources, such as a cigarette.
- Flaming Ignition Test: This evaluates the resistance of upholstery materials to ignition caused by an open flame, simulating more severe fire conditions.
- Compliance with Specific Criteria: Materials used in upholstered furniture must meet specific criteria regarding ignition time, flame spread, and afterglow to comply with the standard.
- Testing of Complete Items: The standard allows for testing of complete items or individual components, depending on the requirements and specifications of the furniture.
