Reliability Testing for Beds and Mattresses



Bed and mattress testing to simulate real-life use. Providing valuable information on how a bed or mattress will perform during its full life-cycle.


Is testing beds and mattresses important?


A good night’s sleep is one of the most vital parts of living a healthy life, so making sure a bed or mattress meets the users expectations is a key factor when purchasing them.


Strength and durability as well as safety and structural stability are all important factors when purchasing new beds or mattresses, and each one can have a long term effect on the end users ability to have a comfortable full nights sleep.


Testing to ensure products are complaint with regulatory requirements


The 2005 General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) by law requires beds and mattresses to present none or a minimal risk to the end user.


There is also a British Standard BS 7177, which is a voluntary compliance for fire regulations for the use of beds and mattresses in the UK.


In 2018 a new regulation will be issued which is specific for the testing of mattresses which are intended to be used by infants in cots and cribs.

Did you know?


In the UK, the flammability regulations are different from that of a product which is to be sold in Europe. So when planning your testing it is essential that you look at the different regulations for where each product will be sold/used and that you can provide a valid test certificate to show a product is legal in this country.
