Ingo Bandurski continued: "The focus is no longer on how individual materials react to fire, it is upholstery compounds as a whole that are assessed." This is now the view expressed in various state construction ordinances, thus enabling the production of comfortable seating despite stringent fire prevention requirements – even in critical areas such as working, seminars, dining, waiting and travel. "With regard to airport planning, it takes no more than two questions before the potential customer comes to our products' fire prevention properties," reports Bandurski. "It's the same all over the world." Kusch+Co has a well-functioning international operation and supplies its furniture all around the globe – even to US schools.
Whereby the furniture itself is at the end of the chain: "First we work out the project proposals together with the fire prevention officers and even draw up approval requests for specific products or upholstery components." This is based on many years of experience, countless references and a large number of "approvals for specific projects", which Kusch+Co has been able to obtain on a regular basis. This is also thanks to the transparency we display: "We don't claim to produce incombustible furniture, but we do our utmost to improve fire safety in public areas and protect lives while providing high-quality, comfortable furniture."
