Most certified office swivel chairs across Australia and New Zealand are tested to the requirements of AS/NZS 4438:1997 – Height Adjustable Swivel Chairs. This standard of chair is recognised as being suitable for users up to approximately 110kg. Each of our chairs have an individual weight rating listed on the relevant product specification sheet. Chairs accredited with an AFRDI Level 6 logo will suit commercial needs. AFRDI Level 6 certified chairs withstand heavy duty use.
The GREENGUARD program certifies products that are designed for indoor use and meet strict chemical emissions limits, ensuring the safety and health of office interiors.
GREENGUARD Gold Certification
GREENGUARD Certification on a product ensures the manufacturing process has attained specific sustainable practices, using scientific data from unbiased, third-party organisations. All products meeting the GREENGUARD Certification have been tested in dynamic, environmental chambers following a range of different testing methods such as chemical and particle emission interval measurements, microbial resistance testing and measured emission levels by air concentration.
BIFMA is the Association for Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturers – an American-based organisation running since 1973 to provide standards for commercial furniture.
BIFMA is accredited by, and their standards conforming to, requirements by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The BIFMA Engineering Committee develops the standards and continually drafts and revises new protocols for manufacturers to follow. The BIFMA standards are put in place to provide manufacturers and users with a common basis for evaluating safety, durability, stability and structural quality of specified furniture.
