SLG mark "Usability tested" for garden equipment
Functionality, handling and durability are important product characteristics consumers look at before making a buying decision. Therefore, we have developed specific test programmes for garden and outdoor equipment to thoroughly examine their performance characteristics. Separate evalutions for functionality, handling and durability are then incorporated into an overall SLG FFU rating - ranging on a five-tier scale from VERY GOOD to VERY POOR.
For a product achieving VERY GOOD or GOOD in the SLG FFU overall rating, the manufacturer may apply for the right to use the SLG test mark "Fit for use". However, the test mark shall only be awarded if the product meets all safety standards legally required.
