Cushion safety initiative gains momentum

The Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association's (LOFA) LOFAssured initiative, which ensures that all cushions sold by the association's members comply with current Government fire safety regulations, is gaining strength across the garden furniture industry, with 21 members already certified, and 17 in progress and soon to be completed.

One of the conditions of LOFA membership is that members must adhere to a code of conduct, part of which is compliance with all current legislation – it is this culture of propriety that the retailer and customer buy into when they source product from LOFA members.

LOFAssured helps set LOFA products apart from those from non-compliant suppliers. LOFA appointed the Furniture Industry Research Association and entered into a Primary Authority Partnership with Hertfordshire Trading Standards to aid its members in their quest for full compliance.
