The ICON 40 chair by ICS Furniture has just moved to the top of its class! This stackable, linkable and customisable seat was designed by ICS furniture not only for places of worship, but also for contract use in offices, conferences and schools and has just been awarded the BS EN 16139 for severe contract use.
For the chair’s designer and ICS Furniture MD Gavin Duignan, it was not enough to design a seat that was stylish, comfortable and highly practical. Strength, durability and safety of the product was also key, so the decision was made to send the chair to be tested by the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA).
“I felt that an independent test on the ICON 40 would help our customers in their decision to choose this seat. They can now be assured that their choice of chair is one that is ultimately fit for purpose and that the chair would withstand not only normal use, but inevitable misuse over the many years that they will have it.”
For almost 50 years ICS furniture have been designing and manufacturing furniture from their base in Dromod, Co. Leitrim. This accreditation is a testament to the company’s commitment to designing seating that is, and will be enjoyed by many, for many years to come.
FIRA testing is conducted in a controlled laboratory which simulates real-life use for all types of furniture and related products for both the domestic and contract markets. For further details visit The FIRA website
