AHH Bean Bag Chairs
Meets CPSC Safety Standard

ahhhh...that spot's safe!

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's mission is to protect consumers from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death that may occur from more than 15,000 types of consumer products.  The CPSC reports that deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $700 billion each year. The CPSC strives to protect consumers from products that pose a fire, chemical, electrical, or mechanical danger.  They also protect against hazards to children.  The CPSC's efforts to ensure the safety of items, like bean bag chairs, has contributed to a 30% decrease in the rate of deaths and injuries caused by consumer products.

The CPSC's guidelines dictate that bean bag chair filling cannot be accessed easily by children.  Bean bag chair zippers on covers and liners that have direct access to bean bag filling must be fitted in such as way as to prevent children from exposure to the filling.  Bean bag filling such as the styrofoam (polystyrene) we use is not toxic, but the danger lies in suffocation.  If the filling is breathed in and fills the nose and/or mouth, suffocation may occur.  Note that in regards to filling toxicity, shredded couch cushion foam (polyurethane) may have off-gassing caused by fire-retardent chemicals, so we do not use polyurethane foamRead more about styrofoam versus shredded foam...

Ahh bean bag chairs are CPSC compliant. Our liner zippers are self-locking and cannot be opened without a paperclip or other such tool and the knowledge of how to open the zipper.
