Certifications


WE’RE PROUD TO OFFER QUALITY PRODUCTS THAT MEET THE HIGHEST INDUSTRY STANDARDS


As of August 2017, VARIDESK was the first company in the world to have sit-stand office products receive the UL BIFMA Performance Certification mark. The UL BIFMA performance mark is the first and only program that certifies that products meet BIFMA standards and provides a basis for evaluating the performance and durability of products.


Besides testing with 3rd party laboratories, VARIDESK also has an on-site UL Data Witness lab at our manufacturing location. That means we’re able to test our products on-site under supervision of a UL representative who can issue certifications. This saves us time in the testing process and allows us to bring products to market quickly without sacrificing safety or quality.


VARIDESK is proud to offer quality products that not only help you have a healthier workday, but also feature quality materials that are produced sustainably in healthy environments to the strictest industry standards.


The chart below details the certifications achieved by each of our products.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked
Questions


BIFMA (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacture Association) is the leading trade association for business and institutional furniture manufacturers. They set the most sought-after standards in the industry regarding ergonomics and safety.

In 2017, BIFMA partnered with UL to begin issuing BIFMA performance certifications, which are a step above simply testing to ANSI*/BIFMA performance standards for furniture. They test and verify products for BIFMA standards and confirm the legitimacy of the product testing and resulting data. So basically, BIFMA sets the industry standards and UL performs the actual testing to ensure that products meet those standards.

The UL BIFMA performance mark is the first and only program that certifies that products meet BIFMA standards and provides a basis for evaluating the performance and durability of products.

As of August 2017, VARIDESK was the first company in the world to achieve UL/BIFMA certification in the sit-stand category.

There are other organizations who run 3rd party testing labs, but UL is the only one who can say a product is “UL certified to BIFMA standards” or the product has received “UL BIFMA Performance Certification”.

*ANSI: American National Standards Institute

UL Certified

ANSI/BIFMA X5.5 Standard

Provides a common basis for evaluating the safety, durability and structural performance of desk/table products intended for use in commercial office and related institutional environments such as educational environments. It provides test methods and performance requirements for desk/table products.

ANSI/BIFMA X7.1 Standard

Provides performance requirements for the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including formaldehyde and aldehydes, from office furniture and seating. It specifies acceptance levels that define low-emitting furniture independent of construction materials, manufacturing processes, mechanical designs, or aesthetic designs. It applies to newly manufactured products only and not to products that have been in use.

ANSI/BIFMA X5.1 Standard

Provides manufacturers, specifiers, and users with a common basis for evaluating the safety, durability, and structural adequacy of general-purpose office chairs that are normally used in an office environment. This may include, but is not limited to those seating styles typically referred to as: executive/management, task/secretarial, side/guest chairs, nesting folding chairs, tablet arm chairs and stools.

The GREENGUARD Certification gives assurance that products designed for use in indoor spaces meet strict chemical emissions limits, which contribute to the creation of healthier interiors. Achieving GREENGUARD Certification gives credence to manufacturers’ sustainability claims, backing them with empirical scientific data from an unbiased, third-party organization.

GREENGUARD Gold Certification offers stricter certification criteria, considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System.

UL issues both certifications and they apply to all the materials used in a product. Hundreds of tests are performed to measure environmental impact. Many VARIDESK products have both GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold certification which means they also automatically meet the ANSI/BIFMA X7.1 standard.

The Witness Test Data Program (WTDP) is part of UL’s Data Acceptance Program (DAP) which allows companies to utilize their own facilities for product testing under UL’s supervision. This means participating test facilities are required to have the appropriate resources, equipment, and qualified personnel to conduct the testing, equivalent to what would be used in UL’s own laboratories.

VARIDESK has its own UL Data Witness lab at our manufacturing location. Now, instead of sending products out to a 3rd party lab, UL representatives can come in to our lab, supervise our testing process and issue certifications for our products on-site. This saves us time in the testing process and allows us to bring products to market more quickly without sacrificing safety or quality.
