While testing is an essential component of the product manufacturing cycle, from development to customer satisfaction, we understand that the cost and time constraints of NATA testing can lead to slower supply times.
TQRTM may be seen to be an accurate but abridged alternative to NATA testing. Pre-conditioning may be forgone unless deemed necessary and fewer replicate specimens tested. In many instances, this in no way dilutes the integrity of the results and the outcome is a quicker more cost effective service.
With a wealth of experience in testing home textiles such as bedlinen, cushions, blankets, throws and towels, we offer a full range of services for products including:
Many clients currently supply Children’s Nightclothes for sale in Australia. In order to do so they are required to comply with the mandatory Consumer Goods (Children’s Nightwear and Limited Daywear and Paper Patterns for Children’s Nightwear) Safety Standard 2017.
The attachment strength of small attachments such as Snap Fasteners, buttons and trims on children’s garments is considered highly important, as if loosely attached, they can become a choking hazard for a small child.
The thermal comfort of children is a fundamental parental concern, and in addition to fire safety, information on the TOG rating of nightwear and bedding is paramount in purchasing decision making. The tog is a measure of thermal resistance used in the textile industry to indicate the amount of expected insulation provided by the item.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) have also provided guidelines on chemicals that can be used in production and finishing of textile products and may be harmful.
