Bill MacLeod, director of Business Development for the Grand Rapids, MI-based Irwin Seating Company - a manufacturer of fixed seating, such as that used in auditoriums and lecture rooms - said, "There are all kinds of different standards for durability.
Also related to durability is fire resistance, said MacLeod. He explained there are two basic fire standards - one common to all the states; and the second, which can vary from state to state (California, for example, being more stringent than others).
