BSI Kitemark TM
WHEN IT MATTERS
MOST, TRUST THE
A SYMBOL OF TRUST
Next are proud to have been awarded the Domestic Furniture Kitemark for a wide selection of our sofa range. The BSI Kitemark is the original British trust-mark since 1903 - it's been a trusted symbol of quality and safety for almost 115 years.
When you see the BSI Kitemark on Next products, it gives confidence that your furniture has been made with care and skill in an environment with rigorous factory process controls.
The Kitemark certification process really puts your sofa through its paces, so you can be confident that it will meet your expectations for years to come.
FACTORY PROCESS CONTROLS
Quality checks are carried out on all components that make up our sofas and quality inspections are carried out throughout the production process. Factory machines and equipment are well maintained and calibrated. Regular training is carried out to maintain our high standards and to ensure all our expert craftsmen and women are kept up to date with new products and processes.
All of our sofas are rigorously tested for frame durability and strength. The Kitemark requires testing to BSEN16135 contract level 1, but Next test our sofas to the significantly more rigorous level 2 requirements. This includes strength testing with a 200kg load on the seat and also durability testing by applying a 100kg load to the seat 200,000 times. That's equivalent to someone sitting on the sofa once every day for 547 years!
FURNITURE AND FURNISHINGS FLAMMABILITY REQUIREMENTS
All our fabrics and fittings are thoroughly tested and retested for flamability according to the UK furniture and furnishings regulations.
BUY WITH CONFIDENCE
Next have worked with BSI to get independent third party confirmation of the high quality standard of our products.
BSI are experienced in checking, testing and inspecting products and services and the environments in which they are produced, to make sure that they meet recognised industry standards. It's only after rigorous inspections and a consistent level of quality and reliability has been demonstrated that BSI award the Kitemark.
The Kitemark was the first quality mark to be established in the UK in 1902; it is your proof that vital safety and performance requirements have been met.
