Our testing and certification.

Often it's what you don't see that makes all the difference.

Australia sets some of the highest manufacturing standards in the world.
Our fully accredited testing laboratory conducts exhaustive trials to ensure that Sebel products meet all domestic
and international standards for strength and durability.

We are the ONLY furniture manufacturer in Australia with an independent NATA certified testing facility
and we test to double the Australian standards. You can be sure that all Sebel product prototypes are
tried and tested to survive in the toughest of environments. We hold certificates for various quality and
environment standards, including:

  • ISO 9001 Quality Management System as a quality accredited manufacturer
  • NATA World Recognised Accreditation
  • AFRDI Blue Tick Certification
  • Good Environmental Choice Accreditation (GECA)

Behind each Sebel product is our genuine manufacturing culture which is focussed on making products that have the latest ergonomics (Form), work at a practical level (Function) and are built to last (Quality). When you buy Sebel, you are investing in your customers, students and staff, ensuring they will benefit through features that have been designed and refined over many decades including:

  • World leading ergonomics designed into every aspect.
  • Environmentally friendly materials.
  • Proven durability to last many years in the toughest environments.
  • Cost effectiveness through the latest manufacturing methods.
  • Promoting better circulation and increased concentration for long periods of time.

Our dedicated design department is comprised of industrial designers, engineers and draftspeople and employs the latest in 2D & 3D CAD design tools. Three dimensional modelling allows a high level of evaluation to occur before any prototypes are produced. These advanced systems allow rapid prototyping, finite element analysis and detailed mould flow analysis. The end result is a vast reduction in the time from concept to finished product.

Our superior manufacturing culture is another part of the Sebel difference.
