FAQs

  • WHAT IS THE REGULATION?

    The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, Requirements for Mattresses and Mattress Pads 16 C.F.R. Part 1632. This standard reduces the risks of death, personal injury, and property damage associated with fires that result from the ignition of mattresses by cigarettes. The standard provides a test to determine the ignition resistance of a mattress. It defines a mattress pad as: "a thin, flat mat or cushion and/or ticking filled with resilient material for use on top of a mattress. This definition excludes convoluted foam pads that are not totally encased in ticking."
