ALL REQUIREMENTS HAVE BEEN QUANTIFIED AND VERIFIED

You can find them in the NF Ameublement specifications, available at www.meuble-qualité-certifié.fr

These standards were created in partnership with consumers associations, users, distributors, manufacturers, laboratories and public bodies

For all the certified furniture units, regular tests and audits had been conducted by FCBA in order to ensure their conformity to standards:

Test examples on a certified furniture unit:

SOLIDITY

Storage furnishing overload test: Simulation of a kitchen shelf being overloaded with piles of plates and cups

SAFETY

Test of glass impact from below: Simulation of the head of a child colliding with the glass from below.

DURABILITY

Test of polymer door seal at 70°C: Simulation of a door located near a hot oven.

Chair armrest test: Simulation of a person standing up and leaning on the armrests.

Certification is a voluntary procedure for the furniture manufacturers: They are committed to manufacturing identical lines of furniture which are conformed to the brand standards.


GOOD TO KNOW !

A NF certified piece of furniture is guaranteed to be conform to the standards currently in place, as the brand is backed by the Technological Institute FCBA.

The NF logo is a symbol of quality, security and reliability for the consumer: “The claims are proven”.

All certified furniture units can be recognized by a stamp (located on the inside of a door, under the seat of a chair, under a table top…depending on the furniture).
