Furniture Stability Standard – ASTM F2057
This voluntary ASTM safety specification (last updated in 2019) is intended to reduce injury and death from accidents involving the tip over of clothing storage furniture. Specifically, it covers chests, dressers, bureaus, armoires and other furniture with drawers or storage compartments for clothing. Procedures for stability testing are presented in detail within the standard.
A link to a companion standard for tip restraints (ASTM F3096) – which are required by F2057 – is also provided below, as well as a link to AHFA’s Furniture Stability Compliance Toolbox.
