Storage furniture for non-domestic use, new version of EN 16121 published

In December 2023, the new EN 16121 was published to replace EN 16121:2013+A1:2017, a standard that defines the requirements for safety, strength, durability and stability of furniture for non-domestic use.
The most important change is that this standard also applies to office furniture, thus replacing the dated EN 14073-2 and consequently EN 14073-3 and 14074.
Main changes and technical novelties
New methods and references have been added for the assessment of safety requirements and for the assessment of entrapment and crushing of fingers during the use of furniture.
Two levels, general and severe, have been added to calculate the total mass, the figure to be used for verifying the applicability of safety tests.
