Furniture often holds a special place in people's hearts. After all, it's what makes someone's house feel like a home. Not only does furniture offer a creative way to add individuality, character and flair to a living space, but when carefully selected, it can make it both comfortable and inviting. As such, furniture not only needs to be pleasing to the eye, but it must also be sturdy and of the highest quality to guarantee its prolonged use.

How do inspections work?

When you hire Global Inspection Managing to carry out furniture inspections, you'll receive a thorough report covering our findings, suggestions and any potential problems we think might occur during manufacturing. However, we won't just use your own standards policy as a checklist, we'll also make sure you're meeting any relevant national and international regulations. We have a number of inspectors who are specialists in this area, so no matter where your business is located in the world, we're happy to help.

What do they look for?

Our inspectors will take samples at multiple points along your manufacturing line, comparing your products against CAD design sketches to ensure they meet the requirements specified by you. This might include size, colour, weight and overall finish.
Next, we'll carry out on-site tests to ensure that the furniture you are producing is safe to use. When we conduct the checks listed above, we're looking to see how well your furniture copes with different variables to determine its durability and strength. Our specialists can even complete appropriate lab tests such as fire resistance and surface coatings.

Finally, we'll inspect your packaging to ensure that all furniture is securely protected against damage during transit, including scratches, abrasions and breakages.
