Electrified furniture has recently been regulated by European standards. Sicom Testing can help the manufacturer identify the applicable standards and run i tests required so that the placing of the product on the market is correct from both a technical and regulatory point of view.
Thanks to many years of experience and constant updating, Sicom Testing can:
- help the manufacturer to orient himself and identify the most correct way to comply with all the required standards;
- if there are products that are different but very similar, identify them product families to group them in a coherent way and carry out tests only on some products, thus saving the manufacturer time and financial resources;
- provide a highly competent service also for mechanical tests, working in collaboration with the laboratory CATAS.
Electrified furnishing products
Electrified furniture products can be divided into two macro-types: furnishing products with electrified movements (relaxation armchairs, motorized sofa beds, adjustable desks and tables) and furnishing products without movement but equipped with lighting or connectivity components (furniture, tables and sofas with light points and electrical sockets).
Motorized furniture components must meet the requirements established by Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE and from Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/UE.
The certification of lighting components requires compliance with the standards described by the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/UE and from Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU
To obtain the CE marking for furniture, the manufacturer can request the help of a specialized laboratory.
Sicom Testing performs all the necessary tests, provides support in drafting of documents, of technical files and boasts experience in the field of furniture components for medical use.
