The Luxe Gold Test Standard is a list of stringent testing procedures that set a strict and precise requirement for Luxe products. Test Standards are conducted by independent laboratories
The Luxe Gold Test Standard Stringent testing procedures
AS4288:2003: AS/NZ Standard Soft underlays for textile floor coverings, certifies a carpet underlay as compliant and manufactured in accordance with performance, quality, and safety requirements deemed acceptable for their intended use.
ISO 9239-1:2010 specifies a method for assessing the wind-opposed burning behavior and spread of flame of horizontally mounted flooring’s exposed to a heat flux radiant gradient in a test chamber when ignited with pilot flames
BS EN ISO 20743:2013
BS EN ISO 20743:2013 Determination of the antibacterial activity of textile products. By controlling unwanted microbes, Ultra-Fresh antibacterial and antifungal protection helps to keep products fresh, clean, and odor-free
Sound Insulation ISO 10140-3:2010
Thermal Insulation ASTM C518-2010:
ASTM C518-2010: Is the Standard Test Method for Steady-State Thermal Transmission Properties by Means of the Heat Flow Meter Apparatus. This test method provides a rapid means of determining the steady-state thermal transmission properties of thermal insulation
Hexapod Tumbler Test
The Hexapod Tumbler test standard subjects a sample of carpet and underlay to simulated wear conditions at 1500 cycles 9-12 months on-floor and 8000 cycles 3-4 years on-floor. Although not ’exactly reproducing’ the changes on the floor, it is used to simulate a carpet’s likely performance
Test Standard ISO: 9073-3 1989
ISO: 9073-3 1989
Application of a force longitudinally to a test piece of a specified length and width at a constant rate of extension. Determination of values for breaking strength and elongation from the recorded force-elongation curve.
Textile floor coverings – Tests and measurements, Method 14: Determination of thickness loss after prolonged, heavy static loading
Volatile Organic Compounds
ASTM D5116 helps determine the volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from indoor materials and products. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are present in all natural and synthetic materials, and can exist not only as structurally-diverse liquids and solids but also as vapours.
