UL Webinar: Reduce Risks and Recalls with New UL4041 Outdoor Furniture Safety Standard

Learn why retailers are adopting the new standard.

Nearly 3 Million outdoor furniture products were recalled between 2016-2018 in the US and Europe, posing real safety risks to consumers, and great expense and risk to retailers and manufacturers. Those products included chairs, hammocks and benches that were safety hazards due to instability or improper design and manufacturing, and they accounted for millions of dollars in recalls and risk to the retailers’ reputation.

Recognizing this problem, UL worked with retailers to develop UL 4041, a safety certification program for outdoor furniture, which assesses outdoor products for dangers like corrosion, stability, strength, shear and pinch points, endurance and durability. Products certified to UL 4041 are evaluated to show that products do not pose risk of injury during typical usage and reasonable foreseeable use.

  • The recall data and risk that outdoor furniture poses to consumers and retailers
