Particular care should be taken when putting solid wood furniture onto underfloor heating. This may cause additional drying of the wood and result in shrinkage, distortion or crack formation. We therefore recommend additional moistening.
The load-bearing capability of upholstered furniture, functional items and complementary items in general, be it made from glass, wood, metal or plastic, is extremely variable and limited. For this reason, attention must be paid to the maximum load-bearing capability limits in the manufacturer’s specifications. Proper and sufficient support and stability is required. The individual values and notes can be found in the respective model enclosures. The requirements of the RAL-GZ 430/4 of the »Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V.« (German Furniture Quality Assurance Association) act as a guideline.
The quality of a product is not really dependent on whether a furniture item is made from wood materials or solid wood, but rather on the quality of the material which is used and the workmanship. The well-tried boards of material (chipboard), medium-density fibre boards (MDF), timber, three layer boards and wood-core plywood are of extremely high quality. Be it with veneer, foil or a painted surface, they are extremely stable, less susceptible to temperature fluctuations and versatile. The materials from which they are made are sustainably tested and certified for being harmless to health in accordance with the EU directives and the stricter RAL requirements of the »Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V.« Wood materials protect our natural resources to a considerable extent.
