We are expanding our services available in our Cabiate, Italy lab, and are pleased to announce that North American manufacturers with European affiliates and suppliers can now submit furniture and bedding products in Italy for UL Mark certification. Now the Cabiate, Italy laboratory is qualified to perform UL Certification for both powered and non-powered furniture and bedding according to the following standards: UL-962 (Household and Commercial Furnishing), UL-65 (Wired Cabinets), and UL-1286 (Office Furnishings).

This qualification allows us to provide this service in addition to our conventional safety and performance testing according to European standards for furniture and BIFMA standards. Other advanced services that our Cabiate Lab offers are:

• Performance testing to BIFMA and EN standards
• Performance and durability tests of furniture components that have complex movements (using a special collaborative robot arm)
3D scanning of complete furniture pieces down to small scale models

These new capabilities and equipment will expand the service and speed available to manufacturers and suppliers in the European market.
