Even better protected
The emissions label developed by the German Furniture Quality Association (Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V. – DGM) ensures that consumers are better protected against health impairments due to emissions of pollutants in furniture. Displayed directly on the product, the emissions label bestowed on W.SCHILLIG in 2015 for its entire collection attests to classification in the highest A Class with the lowest levels of contamination. It meets the requirements of the limits under RAL GZ 430/4 and RAL UZ 117 (upholstered furniture).
Quality is our main concern at W.SCHILLIG. The frame is solidly built of hardwood or metal. Top grade coil springs, soft or hard, or Bultex foam on solid springing forms the support for the upholstery. The filling is a fine compound of quality foam and modern brand name materials. To do justice to the very different international requirements, we deliver to our trade partners according to their specific needs, e.g. the USA, and the UK among others. Despite highly mechanized manufacturing methods, the craftsman’s experience is a crucial factor for the quality of our products. Every production phase is subjected to a quality check. Every upholsterer is responsible for a complete individual order. Our products are also regularly tested according to the strict regulations of the furniture seal of quality RAL GZ 430/4 for healthy living and therefore do not present a hazard to health.
Our models are produced according to the DIN and RAL guidelines of the Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e. V. (German Furniture Makers Quality Association), and are inspected in all functional and material areas by authorised/ certified institutes, e.g. the Landesgewerbeanstalt Bayern (LGA). They conform with the strict German and EU guidelines. Here, furniture is placed within a climatic chamber and checked for harmlessness according to regulations.
This quality mark guarantees, among others, a low-emission and non-toxic product. It is the only quality mark for furniture in Europe and guarantees continuous certified product quality. As a member of the German Furniture Makers Quality Association, W.SCHILLIG undergoes permanent inspections.

W.SCHILLIG supports the climate protection
The sun is one of the most important sources of energy today. The sun's energy does not consume any raw materials and does not release any pollutants or greenhouse gases.
The sun's rays are converted into heat. On the roofs of W.SCHILLIG's company buildings with the help of sunlight, the photovoltaic modules produce electrical »green« electricity. In this way the area of approx. 8,500 sqm can be used sustainably.
