A Cutting-Edge PROF Testing Protocol for Furniture Drawer Slides

March 27, 2023

We are pleased to announce the launch of an innovative slide test protocol that uses PROF to assess the performance and durability of furniture drawers.

The PROF furniture drawer slide test protocol accurately simulates real consumer use and misuse to measure and map the evolution of opening force, damping force and drawer face position during use. It can also compare the impact of drawer use on the right and left sides and be used to compare different brands and designs.

This system has several key advantages for consumers, manufacturers and brands. Its high-quality and impartial data supports performance and durability claims, building consumer trust and enabling better-informed purchasing decisions. It also empowers better commercial decisions concerning design improvements and product selection.

PROF is our next generation performance and durability testing solution for consumer products. Combining adaptable robotics with advanced algorithms and high-level analytics, it accurately replicates real human dynamics and can measure the impact on a product. Every PROF test protocol is built using the real use configurations drawn from the actions of a large panel of end users, ensuring accuracy and authenticity.
