Fira Gold

‘Dress Free = Stress Free’

says the manufacturer of a new high performance seat cushion and the first only all foam cushion to be awarded FIRA Gold Product Certification.

Comfortex Ltd specialises in comfort technology for the medical, mattress, leisure and upholstery sectors, and has received the quality mark for its ComfortexAIR cushion inner.

Nathan Beckwith, Managing Director of Comfortex, explains: “ComfortexAIR is our innovative answer to an unspoken problem; creating a comfortable seat cushion that always recovers. It feels like fibre at first but becomes more supportive as you relax. We have tested the durability of our cushions to contract standards of 200,000 cycles and this has been verified through independent testing by FIRA. Specifying our FIRA Gold, ComfortexAIR cushion inner for retail upholstery will give you confidence in not only the comfort foremost, but its ability to ‘rebound’ to its original shape, time and time again.”

FIRA Gold Product Certification

Is a quality mark awarded by FIRA International and backed by the Furniture Industry Research Association, experts in the furniture industry for 65 years.

Phil Reynolds, Chief Operating Officer for FIRA International, said: “The ComfortexAIR is the first cushion made entirely of foam to receive FIRA Gold Product Certification. To attain FIRA Gold, a product must have passed all relevant tests and standards which replicate real-life use and allowing us to see how a product will perform in the home. Specifying FIRA Gold on a tender document is becoming increasingly common, as it serves as independent evidence that a product will be up to the job in hand.”

FIRA Gold Certification is awarded following stringent assessment of the products to ensure they fulfil all relevant industry standards. The accreditation means that the unique production processes used by Comfortex have passed a rigorous series of tests to ensure that their ComfortexAIR cushions are made to the highest standards each and every time.

FIRA Gold is the only accreditation scheme recognised by the furniture industry and audited by an independent third party.

Comfortex is ISO9001 Quality Assured and a proud member of the Furniture Industry Research Association.
