Fire labels

In order for us to be able to sell the items that you donate, some of them have to meet certain safety standards.

British safety specification

We can only accept upholstered items if there is a label attached that lets us know it meets UK safety standards.

Mattresses and upholstered bed bases have to be in a good clean condition with no rips, tears or stains. The items must also have a fire label sewn in, which refers to BS7177 - which is the British safety specification for resistance to ignition of mattresses, divans and bed bases.

Fire safety labels

There are two versions of a fire label as shown below. They are permanent and will be sewn into or stapled to the item. Unfortunately we cannot accept items where the labels are not on each individual item. The fire label may be on any external surface of the item including underneath removable seating and cushions.
