CAL 117 Standard for Upholstered Seating

All BioFit upholstered seating products meet the California Technical Bulletin 117 (CAL 117) fire retardant standard, which regulates upholstered furniture flammability. The intent of the standard is to regulate production of upholstered furniture which is safer from the hazards associ ated with smoldering ignition. This standard provides methods for smolder resistance of cover fab rics, barrier materials and resilient filling materials for use in upholstered furniture. While the regulation is only legally binding in the state of California, it has become a nationwide standard within the furniture manufacturing industry.
