The Challenge – Accurately Measure Fabric Tension On Furniture Frames
Why do we need an accurate fabric tension tester?
Firstly, fabric tension testing guarantees the fabric being used on furniture frames meets the high quality needed for durability, comfort and support.
Secondly, having the incorrect fabric tension can lead to fabric tearing, poor posture support, visually poor fabric quality and a corresponding loss of customer satisfaction and a decrease in sales and profit.
