California TB 133 Fire Safety Code
CALPIA offers many chairs/lounges, which can be manufactured to the standards set forth in California Technical Bulletin 133. The Bureau
of Home Furnishings outlines requirements for fire safe seating that is used in public spaces. Such facilities might include, but are not
limited to jails, prisons, nursing care homes, health facilities and public auditoriums. Full interpretation of what constitutes public
occupancy is left to the local fire authority. It is the responsibility of the customer to check with the local fire authority.
Manufacturing criteria for TB-133 compliance are based upon testing of representative styles. Some chairs are available in only fabric or vinyl and are
subject to testing results.
When considering COM for use on a chair that must meet TB-133, please contact the CALPIA Account Department for assistance. Testing fees may
be the responsibility of the customer.
