Seat Springs Construction
A seat spring system adds comfort and years of life to any chair. We include a seat spring assembly on many of our designs, each tailored to the chair, its use and style. Better support for the foam means extra years of use and a better sit.
All of our chairs are built using high quality polyurethane foam for seat and back cushioning. We can change the foam to match your needs. We tailor the firmness and resiliency to maximize comfort and use the best material available to insure your chair lasts a long time. Contact Westin-Nielsen Customer Service for more information.
All of our foam meets California Technical Bulletin #117 and BIFMA x5.7-1991 flammability standards.
CAL TB 133 Facts
All Westin-Nielsen chairs can be constructed to be CAL TB133 compliant. When a fire barrier layer is added to our chairs, CAL TB133 compliance can be achieved with a wide range of commercial fabrics. Fabric content must be provided at time of order. We will notify you if the fabric selected is not acceptable.
The additional charge for CAL TB133 compliant construction is:
+15% List extra for all single chair models
+20% List extra for all multiple seating, sofa or settee models.
If project specific test results are required, you will be responsible for any test charges and associated freight costs. Please contact Westin-Nielsen Customer Service for details.
We will label chairs constructed to CAL TB133 compliant standards as such. Please be aware that the use of a fire barrier layer to achieve CAL TB133 compliance may affect the upholstered appearance and comfort of the product.
