Aside from the base line cigarette and match fire retardancy requirements (which are standard for medical foam and covers), a more robust composite test applies – BS7177 for mattresses and BS7176 for cushions.
Herida are proud to acknowledge that these basic tests, alongside the following ones in raw material format, naturally apply to all of our products:
BS EN ISO 845 : 2009 (ISO 845 : 2006)
BS EN ISO 2430 : METHOD B 2008
BS EN ISO 1798 : 2008
BS EN ISO 1856 : 2001
BS 3379 : 2005
Explanations of all of our detailed test procedures are available from our Technical Department, which is contactable on our Freephone telephone number – +44(0)800 193 6030
