- Jun 01, 2019-

1. Adding protective cover to dangerous outbursts

New Standard: School furniture products can not exist dangerous sharp edges and tips, the position below the ground height of 1600 mm can be contacted with the outside angle, the edge and edge parts need to be chamfered or chamfered, and the radius of chamfered circle is not less than 10 mm, or the length of chamfered arc is not less than 15 mm. If dangerous outbursts exist, protective caps or caps should be added to protect them.


Shopping Reminder: Visual inspection can be used directly to observe carefully the corner of student apartment beds, student desks and chairs and other school furniture intended to be purchased. Whether the location below 1.6 meters has been chamfered or chamfered, or whether the prominent part has protective design. If there is no or only part of the protection, this kind of school furniture will soon be eliminated. At the same time, there is a hidden danger of collision and injury to children in daily life, and the lower the price, it needs to be carefully purchased.


2. Formaldehyde emission from classroom furniture should be above level E1

New Standard: Formaldehyde emission of classroom furniture refers to the requirements of GB18580. GB18580 clearly stipulates the emission limits of formaldehyde in interior decoration materials, wood-based panels and their products. Formaldehyde emission of various wood-based panels must reach level E1 before they can be used indoors.


Reminder: The standard only limits the formaldehyde emission of classroom furniture materials, and does not limit the total formaldehyde emission of finished classroom furniture. It is also difficult to achieve under the existing testing conditions. So when consumers buy, sniffing and checking the test report is the main method to directly judge whether the formaldehyde emission exceeds the standard. In the same space, if too much classroom furniture is placed, it will also produce the superposition effect of formaldehyde, so when purchasing, choose products with low formaldehyde emission as far as possible.


3. The applicable age of the product should be marked.

New Standard: The applicable age of the product should be clearly marked in the instructions for the use of school furniture, namely "3-6 years old", "3 years old and above" or "7 years old and above". The mechanical properties of school furniture in different age groups are different. As long as the school furniture in the age group of "7 years old and above" is included, the mechanical properties are more demanding.


Shopping reminders: children are full of curiosity about the world, love to beat and jump in the student apartment bed, so school furniture should withstand the children toss and turn. When purchasing, it is necessary to carefully check school furniture and connectors, which have poor stability such as loosening, deformation and fracture, or school furniture without anti-pull-off device. It is not recommended to choose. In addition, the purchase of students'desks and chairs, it is best to have the function of adjusting according to height changes.
