Hospitality Certified Mattresses

If you are looking to buy or replace mattresses for your commercial setting then you are in the right place. 

You (the customer) may not be aware of the regulations in Ireland regarding Fire Safety when it comes to mattresses, and any bed frames made with fabric, so we hope the following information is useful.

As a company we pride ourselves on offering the right product, price & advice for the right setting.

The majority of hospitality businesses in Ireland (through no fault of their own)  order the incorrect type of Mattress for the environment the products are being installed into.

 The most common subject is CRIB5 (also known as ( Ignition Source 5) products.

Do you need Crib 5 ?

If you’re involved in the following sectors in Ireland, the simple answer is YES – your furniture MUST meet Crib 5 standards for commercial use:   

  • Airbnb
  • Offices & Commercial Settings
  • Retailers
  • Hotels
  • Bed & Breakfasts
  • Hostels & Guest Houses
  • Holiday Parks
  • Rental and Property Management (HMO’s)
  • Student Accommodation

What makes a product legally compliant?

If you are looking to install or replace a mattress or fabric bed for commercial use, the product must comply to the specific fire regulations  comprising of the following tests:

  • BS EN597-1 (Cigarette)
  • BS EN597-2 (match test)
  • BS7177 – CRIB5

Fire Services Act 1981 & 2003

* While the “duty of care” in respect to fire safety in buildings rests with the owner/occupier under the Fire Service Act, 1981, the fire authorities have various powers of inspection and enforcement for fire prevention/safety measures in existing buildings

Who is accountable for fire safety?

You are accountable for fire safety,  if you’re the owner, an employer, an occupier, the landlord, or anyone with control of the vicinity for instance a building or facilities manager, managing agent etc. Failure to use a product that does not meet the minimum requirements could lead to prosecution in the event of a fire and invalidate your insurance.

 Our advice would be if you are unsure, always go for CRIB5. Dont leave yourself exposed .

 Please note that it is YOUR responsibility to determine if your products need to be CRIB5 compliant.
