Description / Abstract:

This practice is to be used to evaluate specific characteristics of importance in the performance of upholstery fabric attached to a furniture unit, including woven, knitted, tufted, flocked, or vinyl fabrics.

It is understood that the fabric used to construct the upholstered furniture unit should be evaluated initially using appropriate fabric performance standards, such as Specifications D 3597 and D 3690.

Loose cushions or pillows considered an inherent part of the total furniture unit are to be evaluated using this practice.

This practice is not to be used to evaluate slipcovers or throws used as furniture coverings. Outdoor furniture coverings are not to be evaluated using this practice.

This practice shall not be construed to be a standard of performance but only as a standard practice for evaluation of attached upholstery fabrics.

This practice may be used by mutual agreement between purchaser and supplier to establish purchasing specifications.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
