Fire Retardancy


As members of LOFA (Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association) we have to abide by the very stringent rules in complying with UK Laws. To that end we have received from FIRA (the Governments recognised official furniture regulator ) Pass Test Certificates for all our cushions. The certificates are for Cushion covers and Cushion Fillings giving you full confidence that the products you are selling from us conform to all the standards. Have a look at the new LOFA web site explaining about the rules.

These Pass Certificates apply to All Cushions supplied by Glencrest Seatex Ltd including those on Katie Blake Garden Furniture.

You should retain these certificates as proof, should you be requested by Trading Standards or any other official body, that you are complying with British Standard 5852 1988 Part 1 Fire and Safety Regulations.

Please print and retain the certificates.

It is Trading Standards who would normally visit your premises requiring evidence that you are selling products that comply with the Law. Remember as the Retailer it is your responsibility to conform to the Law. The certificates only apply to our products and we suggest you should obtain certificates from all your suppliers of Garden Furniture and reject any products that do not conform as it is your responsibility.

Thank you for your on-going support. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
