Tests of upholstery fabric

Quality tests of upholstery fabrics are usually tested according to DIN EN 14465. The key points are durability and stability of textiles. For example: abrasion resistance, tear properties of fabrics, tear strength and colour fastness. We can classify your products according to DIN EN 14465. This classification offers you a guideline for your textiles and their varying uses.
