We recently received our Socialite sofa system back from testing at SATRA and the great news was that it passed its BS EN 16139:2013 first time around.

We send all of our furniture out to SATRA for strength and suitability testing and the BS EN 16139:2013 is the gold stamp of suitability for the contract furniture sector.

The tests include rigorous 24-hour pressure tests as well as a number of component strength tests and, as you can see from the images of the sofa unit that came back, it has had a bit of a tough time and has been well and truly given a good testing.

Although it’s always sad to see one of our pieces of furniture come back in this way, we now know that our furniture will stand up to the test of time.
