Make sure to educate your consumers that although mattresses sold in the U.S. must meet flammability regulations, they are not fireproof. By following reasonable precautions, consumers can reduce their risk of injury in a bedroom fire.
The manufacturers of over 220 million mattresses have purchased SPSC* safety hangtags to:
- Educate and protect consumers
- Reduce product liability risks
- Support product safety research
- Promote activities that advance the safe use of sleep products
Hangtags are available in two convenient formats – as 6.5″ x 3.25″ laminated cards that can be attached to a mattress or included with product-related literature, as well as 6″ x 4″ Tyvek® “labels” to sew into the mattress edge.
The SPSC safety hangtags use pictograms about fire safety that can be understood in any language. Attaching an SPSC safety hangtag to every mattress you produce demonstrates your company’s commitment to product safety. While using the hangtag offers no legal guarantees, it can help both mattress manufacturers and retailers defend their interests in product liability lawsuits.

Hangtags were created in response to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Federal Open-Flame Mattress Standard (16 CFR Part 1633). All mattresses made in or imported into the United States must comply with the law.
