Charities we support

We are excited to be supporting Together as our chosen charity for 2017. Together support people with mental health problems, to lead independent and fulfilling lives in the community. They also work hard to encourage people to talk about mental health to remove the stigma that currently surrounds the subject. Throughout 2017 the Pineapple team will raise money for Together through dress down days and fundraising events.

Environmental commitment

We recognise the need to balance great design and service with responsible and ethical environmental practices. Our commitment to these ideals is demonstrated in our ISO 14001: 2004 and ISO 9001: 2008 awards, and our FSC® Chain of Custody certificate SGSCH-COC-006082. In addition, we are certified under PEFC Chain of Custody certificate SGS-PEFC/COC-0841.

The environment is everyone’s responsibility and we do our part by endeavouring that all of our timber originates from responsibly managed forests. As supporters of the tradition of good forest management, we purchase only suitably certified timber wherever possible.

FSC certified products available upon request.

Furniture strength

All of our furniture is strength and stability tested to contract level. The picture below shows the Harrier sofa undergoing strength and stability testing, to BS EN 16139:2013 Level 2 (severe contract use). In this demanding test, seat and back durability is tested at least 100,000 times.

Fire safety

Flame retardant to contract level, all of our upholstery and fabrics meet BS 7176:2007 Source 0, 1 and 5 [Formerly BS5852 Source 0, 1 and 5]. We also supply fabric and mattresses which meet Crib Source 7.

This allows you to purchase with complete confidence knowing that all our products and fabrics are fully tried and tested.
