Comprehensive solutions for children’s furniture manufacturers
Children’s furniture serves one of the furniture market’s most vulnerable demographics. In an effort to keep children as safe as possible and help parents feel confident in the products they bring into the home, manufacturers take extra steps toward demonstrating the safety and performance of their products. UL can help with this effort.
With our extensive experience throughout the furniture industry, we offer manufacturers comprehensive advisory, testing, evaluation and certification solutions to support the unique needs of the children’s furniture market. From the earliest stages of product design to final production, we can help guide you through the compliance process, so you can effectively demonstrate trust to your customers.
Our global furniture experts work to understand your goals and help you verify the safety, performance and sustainability of your furniture products through mechanical and performance testing in our globally recognized test labs. These tests help you confirm the children’s furniture you sell meets or exceeds all necessary requirements, including sustainability.
