European Standard EN1725

Bed & Mattress Safety Test

One of our more ‘fun’ tests, this is the European Standard test that establishes the overall strength of the bed.

How hard can you rock your bed?

This draft European Standard specifies mechanical safety requirements and testing for all types of fully erected domestic adult beds including all component elements such as bed frame, bed base, mattress and mattress pads (when they form a unit with the mattress).

It does not apply to foldaway beds, bunk beds, children cots and adjustable beds for disabled persons where separate standards exist, as well as waterbeds and air beds.

Further tests may be applicable for test units that are multi purposes, e.g. convertible sofa beds and power driven system.
