California prepares for fire testing

The California Bureau of Home Furnishings and Thermal Insulation has issued a notice for bedding sample submissions to be tested for the development of Technical Bulletin (TB) 604.

The Bureau is asking for finished samples of bedclothing to be submitted by Feb. 29. The Bureau is asking for four duplicate samples of each prototype of comforters and mattress pads; five duplicate twin pillows for the bed pillow category.

Sheet sets must be provided for each bedding product in a 180 percale, 50/50 cotton/polyester blend.

The Home Fashion Products Association has sent members a copy of the full details for sample submission. Contact Carolynn Jennings at HFPA, (212) 297-2122, or Sue Xu at the California Bureau, (916) 574-2522, for further information.
