Furniture flammability and human health
BACK TO NEWS
UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is researching the possible health impacts of, and exposure to, flame retardants in consumer furniture, looking into alternative and environmentally preferable flame retardants. Research will include developing scientific methods to better assess human exposure to flame retardants in air and dust, looking at furniture manufacturing and materials, defining parameters for measuring chemical exposure risk and identifying methods to compare alternative flame retardant technologies.
