In June 2016 Wade Spring were awarded FIRA Gold for their Zig Zag Furniture Springs, the first Furniture Spring Manufacturer to achieve this quality mark.
FIRA Gold is the only certification scheme recognised by the furniture industry and audited by an independent third party.
Testing included passing a 200,000 severe contract cycle test complying
with BS:EN 16139:2013. FIRA Gold Certification is the recognised quality mark for products or installation services within the Furniture and Kitchen Industries.
“Springs are a major component in furniture construction, the achievement of this standard, the ongoing auditing from FIRA, and the further testing of springs should give our customers added confidence they are buying their springs from a reliable source.”
Chris Woodcock, Managing Director for Wade Spring
“We are pleased to be able to issue FIRA Gold Product Certification to Wade Spring Ltd.
We ensure consistency in production quality through regular audit testing and inspections to check that the products continue to provide a high level of performance. By following these strict processes, FIRA Gold provides ongoing reassurance to both Wade’s customers and their clients.”
