UL provides complete furniture testing and safety certification solutions for commercial and retail displays – including performance and durability testing, chemical and emissions testing, component validation and safety certifications – to ensure that products are safe for employees and customers, and perform as expected in retail environments.

UL’s Safety Standards for commercial display furniture include:

• UL 65, the Standard for Wired Cabinets, is the industry leading standard for display cases and special-purpose cabinets, such as jewelry displays, lighted displays, and merchandise cabinets, which contain electrical wiring with or without illumination.

• UL 962, the Standard for Household and Commercial Furnishings, is a certification for kiosks, product displays (including refrigerated), cash wraps, carpet-dispensing machines, shelving units, wall systems, computerized information centers, digital camera and video camera displays, and more.

Confused about which standard applies to your product?  This article series explains which standards are best for which products.

UL can also help furniture manufacturers and retailers affected by California Proposition 65 regulations, which require almost every business operating within the state to warn buyers of the presence of any of nearly 900 chemical substances contained in or emitted by the products that they sell.

On-Site Field Evaluations

UL offers on-site field evaluations for products already at the installation site to assist in quickly addressing local authority concerns. Our commercial inspection and testing service, conducted at suppliers’ facilities, helps to ensure components meet quality and safety specifications.

Commercial Display Evaluation Program

UL can help retailers mitigate risks from unsafe displays by designing custom protocols for retailers, and engaging with vendors to ensure the guidelines are met. UL will work with a retailer to evaluate their current displays, establish guidelines, and enact review, verification and certification programs. This helps retailers ensure that the displays in their stores are safe and avoid potential losses or downtime.
