SATRA invests in new test equipment for office furniture

SATRA continues to invest in expanding its capacity in its Furniture and Floorcoverings division.

27th May 2021

SATRA’s Furniture and Floor Coverings division has purchased a new chair measurement device for assessing the dimensional suitability of office work chairs.

This device creates capacity to test to the latest test method standard: BS ISO 24496: 2021 – ‘Office furniture. Office chairs. Methods for the determination of dimensions’, and therefore the requirements of BS EN 1335-1: 2020 – ‘Office furniture. Office work chair. Part 1: Dimensions. Determination of dimensions.’ This includes the forthcoming amendment to this standard.

Phil Reynolds, Divisional Manager of Furniture and Floor Coverings, commented on the acquisition: ‘This is further evidence of our commitment to ensuring we have the most innovative, cutting edge equipment to meet the needs of our clients.’

This acquisition forms part of SATRA’s renewed commitment to the furniture and floor coverings industries following the launch of the furniture and floor coverings membership package and online Technical Hub.

If you’d like to test to BS ISO 24496:2021, or perform any other furniture or floor coverings test, please contact us at
