Update furniture testing standards:UL 4041:2018 

Nearly 3 million pieces of outdoor furniture were recalled between 2016 and 2018, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.These recalled outdoor furniture fully demonstrate that the products of this category need stricter testing and standards to promote the design and manufacturing of products to a higher level.

 

In collaboration with home depot and others, UL has developed the UL 4041 standard to evaluate the safety of outdoor furniture products.

The UL 4041 standard measures outdoor furniture in terms of corrosion, stability, strength, cutting and clamping (where people can get hurt), durability and durability.The standard helps manufacturers and retailers assess the safety of their products, reduce risks to consumers in the process of use, and inform consumers how to identify safer and more reliable outdoor furniture.

Alberto Uggetti, UL vice President and general manager of the environment and furniture division, said: "UL 4041 is a strict safety procedure designed to prevent accidents when consumers are using outdoor furniture in a normal way and to avoid damage caused by unreasonable and foreseeable misuse."

 

The UL4041 standard program will be approved as the ANSI standard in 2019, and is currently being used to evaluate outdoor furniture products.Home depot has applied the standard to certification of outdoor furniture products in 2019 and plans to extend it to all products that apply to the standard.UL4041 standard certification documents are applicable to outdoor furniture, including tables, chairs, multi-seat products, benches, hanging chairs, swings and lounge chairs.
