QUALITY FROM BAVARIA
There are no compromises here. We use only the finest materials and fulfil all legal requirements and guidelines from the “German Quality Assurance Association for Furniture (Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V.)”. We set ourselves very exacting standards to guarantee products of the very highest quality, so that you can enjoy your new himolla upholstered furniture for many years to come.
QUALITY HAS A NAME – AND MANY FACES
The himolla test laboratory could well be described as a “torture chamber”. The way that our members of staff treat the upholstered furniture and materials during their tests makes this comparison more than fitting. There are abrasion tests, crushing tests, strength tests and more. These tests are the only way to test the quality and longevity of the materials that we use for the production of our products, so that we can offer our customers the triple himolla five-year guarantee.
Each fabric must prove its endurance during regular abrasion tests. Each leather is tested for its durability with intensive attrition tests. The cover materials are tested in line with the strict requirements of the RAL-GZ 430 (DGM quality conditions).
The electronic components are also tested for wear and tear. In other words, they must constantly prove their functionality – day after day, over and over again.
Our seat padding is subjected to endurance tests. It is compressed with a 75 kg weight up to 80,000 times to guarantee fitness for purpose.
Our fittings are also tested under a continuous load. 20,000 load cycles are carried out using himolla dummies, weighing 130 kg.
FRAMES AND NON-MOVING, LOAD-BEARING PARTS
The strength test sees weights of up to 160 kg dropped onto the upholstered furniture for 30,000 cycles.
