CTS Tulsa, Oklahoma Lab opens new mattress testing cell
SGS CTS US unveiled its second mattress testing cell in the Tulsa laboratory. David Chu, managing director, CTS US, was on hand for the inaugural burn and honored the crowd by cutting the ribbon. The completion of this new cell doubles the mattress testing capacity in Tulsa.
Mattress burn tests which are required by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission regulation 16 CFR 1633 -- Resistance of Mattress/Box Spring Sets to Large Open Flame have become an increasingly large business since the change in the regulation in February of this year.
A third cell, currently in development, will elevate SGS to the leader position in mattresses testing in the US. Tulsa Fire Technology Manager, Brian McDonald welcomes clients to personally witness the testing of their products at the facility.
