FOR BUYER
D2-2000 Recommendations according to the GPEM/CP

M

Concerns components (wood, metal, plastic)

NFD 60013

Concerns stuffed chairs : the AM18 regulation (in effect since april 2008) is complementary to the M classification with the NF D 60013 standard that only concerns tests on fabrics. Our WAP-AMETS-KYOS-MAÏTENA-FLIPPER-SMASH ranges can have a special certified NFD 60-013 finish on request.

Regulation for High Rise Building

Regulatory requirements are based on calorific potential (the number of calories a seat releases when burned). This figure must be less than 400 ml per m² (MJ) mega joules). Our design and R&D department is able to calculate and confirm the calorific potential of our seats by covering if necessary, in 24 hours.

Gas lift

WARNING! exchanging the gas spring or any work in this area can be dangerous and must be carried out by specialised personnel.

Manufacturing standards

All our chairs are made according to manufacturing standards: seating manufactured under ISO 9001 quality standard and ISO 14001 environmental management standard; Standard number NF-EN 1335 1-2 and 3 for task chairs, and NF-EN 13761 for visitor chairs.

However, for certain destinations (IGH - High-rise buildings - or for chairs placed in rows in establishments open to the public -) the seats are subject to specific regulations. It is the responsibility of our customers to inform us of the intended use of the product to take into account any regulations.
