Heico, a leading supplier of components to the furniture industry, has achieved FIRA Gold Product Certification for its Blaquer range of zig-zag springs covering all 9 gauge springs from 23” to 30” in length.
Dave Read, General Manager at Heico, said, “Our new ‘Blaquer’ springs use a unique environmentally friendly coating that is fully elastic, meaning no reduction in corrosion protection even under the strain of continuous use”.

Their springs were required to pass a stringent range of strength and durability performance tests before receiving certification. We also ensure consistency in production quality through regular audit testing and audits of Heico’s suppliers’ production facilities around the world. By following these strict processes, FIRA Gold provides ongoing reassurance to specifiers, retailers and customers that they are buying a quality product.”
