SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, have given the Next Generation Turf synthetic grass product range the fire resistant seal of approval. As the global benchmark for quality and integrity, operating in accordance with rigorous industry standard flammability testing, all Next Generation Turf samples passed in accordance with 16 CFR 1630 (1–1–10 Edition)—Standard for the surface flammability of carpets and rugs (FF 1–70).
Undergoing fire prevention testing were the Next Generation Classic 30, as well as the W-Spec 30 and 40. The Aussie Prestige 35mm was also tested and all samples passed. Standards set by the testing and verification company recently completed repeated heat and flame exposure to the samples and found each one to be fire resistant.
In the hot Australian climate, protecting ones home from excessive fire risks is another reason to consider utilising turf as an attractive, low-maintenance alternative.
SGS (formerly Société Générale de Surveillance) is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and provides inspection, verification, testing and certification services with more than 1,800 offices and laboratories worldwide.
