Furniture lab testing approach

Not all the furniture tests can be carried out onsite. As such, our team of experts will send a sample of the furniture to a state-of-the-art furniture testing lab that will test the material of the furniture for aspects like flammability and fire resistance testing.

Also, the furniture lab testing determines the lead content in the wood’s surface and the amount of pentachlorophenol and formaldehyde in case of composite wood furniture.

Once the lab test report is out we will share it with you at the earliest and help you in making amends in the light of the report.
