LOFAssured initiative gains strength across the garden furniture industry

LOFA’s (Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association) LOFAssured initiative ensures that all cushions sold by members comply with current government fire safety regulations.

LOFA is raising awareness of fire safety standards/regulations for garden furniture cushions in this young campaign and, already, seventeen members are certified with 21 in progress and soon to be completed.

One of the conditions of LOFA membership is that members must adhere to a code of conduct, part of which is compliance with all current legislation; it is this culture of propriety that the retailer and customer buy into when they source product from LOFA members. LOFAssured is a distinguishing factor setting LOFA products apart from other non-compliant suppliers. LOFA appointed FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) and entered into a Primary Authority Partnership with HertfordshireTrading Standards to aid the members in their quest for full compliance.

The Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association (LOFA) is a UK trade association representing the interests of its members who are some of the leading manufacturers and distributors of quality garden furniture and barbecues in the world.

LOFA’s primary aim, as a professional trade association, is to work with its members to develop good working practices, a respect for the environment and to provide consumers with up-to-date information on lifestyle products for the garden.

We organise an annual trade exhibition for our members, SOLEX , where the leading garden leisure products are launched.

LOFA was formed 50 years ago in 1967, and we celebrated that recently !
