Advantages Quality and certifications
Quality, safety and resistance of Piaval products are ensured by numerous certifications.
Piaval is certified in the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standard focused on quality management, which attests the adoption of accurate control systems at every stage: from design to production and customer care. The resistance, safety and durability of the products are tested by Catas, the most important Italian institute for certification, research and testing within the wood and furniture industry, a centre of excellence in Italy and around the world. Seats and backs are subjected to 200,000 cycles of load tests.
In 2010, thanks to the company’s treatment of wood as a precious resource to be preserved responsibly, it was obtained the certification from the Forest Stewardship Council®, an international organization which promotes the management of wood around the world in an environmentally conscious and economically responsible manner. On request, products can therefore be FSC® certified, as they are made using FSC® certified material and other controlled materials. Piaval is among the first Italian chair companies to guarantee a scientifically validated level of comfort. Many models obtained Ergocert Class A and Ergocert Class A+, attesting their conformity to the highest ergonomic and usability standards.
