9to5 Seating is proud to announce that our chairs have been approved for BIFMA Compliant. BIFMA Compliant is an industry-wide registry of furniture products that conform to BIFMA safety and durability standards. Compliant provides clarity to the market by differentiating products that meet established industry standards.
With an array of options available on the market today and recognizing that individuals and organizations are now outfitting home office environments, BIFMA seeks to help all consumers make confident furniture buying decisions. The registry is a resource for both specifiers and buyers to quickly identify quality products that comply with safety and durability standards.
The new BIFMA Compliant program complements the existing LEVEL Sustainability program and further establishes BIFMA as the resource for the furniture industry. Both registries run on an ecomedes platform designed to optimize product purchasing.
BIFMA Compliant 9to5 Seating Chairs:
The remaining 9to5 Seating chairs are scheduled to be BIFMA Compliant by end of 2021.
9to5 Seating is launching Kip, a groundbreaking all-mesh stacking chair and stool collection. The new line elevates the multipurpose space and combines unprecedented style and convenience at an accessible price point.
Kip features a level of design and support that sets it apart from other seating in this category. Its all-mesh construction comfortably relieves pressure points, while supporting up to 300 lbs. The collection is easy to clean and disinfect with just a 1:10 bleach-to-water ratio.
Built light with mobility in mind, Kip was created for spaces that see a rotating group of users in the course of a day such as cafés and large public areas. Its angular frame complements the chair’s seat and back lines in Black or Dove Gray mesh and plastic. Models include side chairs, counter-height stools (24” seat) and bar-height stools (29” seat). Sides stack nine on the floor or 24 on the optional dolly. Counter and bar stools stack five on the floor.
Kip is backed by 9to5 Seating’s lifetime warranty and has achieved BIFMA LEVEL 1 and GREENGUARD Gold certifications. Kip starts at $295 List.
As part of the ongoing partnership with Momentum Textiles, 9to5 Seating is launching the Performance 3.0 textile card for commercial, healthcare and education markets. The selection features a range of bleach-cleanable performance textiles in 10 patterns and 70 colors, including EPU polyurethanes, silicones and recycled polyesters with Crypton® finishes. Performance 3.0 is the latest addition to 9to5 Seating’s broad library of carded and graded-in collections.
The patterns on the new co-branded card are all high-performance and easily disinfected. EPU polyurethane patterns have abrasion double rubs from 900,000 up to 1,000,000. The Silica selection is inherently anti-microbial, anti-fungal as well as resistant to permanent ink. Multiple choices with Crypton® finishes are stain- and odor-resistant with an impenetrable moisture barrier.
“Every option on the Momentum Textiles Performance 3.0 card is bleach-cleanable, sustainable, and engineered to withstand high-traffic environments – all critical considerations when choosing upholstery,” says Dara Mir, President and CEO of 9to5 Seating.
9to5 Seating joins Momentum Textiles in its commitment to sustainability. All Performance 3.0 textiles are GREENGUARD certified, made with recycled fibers, and are free of PVC and flame retardants.
