How is the durability of furniture fabric described?
When buying furniture, there are several things around the fabric that are important to look at durability. One of the most important is martindale. Martindale is the unit by which the wear resistance of furniture fabric is described. For the couch in private homes, a minimum of between 15.000 - 25.000 Martindale is recommended in order to cope with normal wear and tear. The fabric is exposed to a machine that loads the fabric in the same way as when sitting on the couch. By comparison, it is usually recommended to use drug with over 50.000 Martindale in public environments, such as trains and buses, etc. Material for use by police or emergency services may require values from 200.000 to 500.000 Martindale.
