The hospitality sector has unique requirements that have to be adhered to and tested for – ‘RIGA Test’ has been specifically created to fill this hole in the market.

As well as British standard furniture tests, we will also carry out tests that have been specifically designed with the hospitality industry in mind. These tests are much more sever and will ensure furniture is suitable for use, and can be easily looked-after over time with our ‘check-up’ service.

Examples of unique testing could be chairs put on top of table whilst floor cleaning is carried out. Not only does the table have to be able to withstand mops with industrial cleaning chemicals, but also the chairs have to withstand a fall from this height.

Also, trolleys serving equipment and industrial cleaning machines all impact furniture life in the hospitality industry, as they have to carefully manoeuvre around pieces of furniture to get past.
