Uratex Monoblock Leads the Charge in Durable and Safe Plastic Furnishings with the "Bawal ang Marupok" Campaign

12:01:00 AM


When you are furnishing your home, workplace, or establishment, plastic chairs, tables, and drawers are a must-have! These versatile essentials have proven their worth time and time again by transforming any space into a functional and inviting haven that can easily redesigned as needed.

But with so many brands producing plastic home furnishings, specifically monobloc chairs, how do you know which ones are worth your money? The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), through the Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS), has got your back! They've implemented strict guidelines and standards to ensure the quality and safety of monobloc chairs and stools, requiring all manufacturers to apply for the mandatory Philippine Standard (PS) mark - proof that the product passed the DTI-BPS's rigorous standards.


Enter Uratex Monoblock - the plastic furniture brand that's taking the market by storm! By adhering to the DTI-BPS's standards, Uratex Monoblock has become the first brand in the Philippines to pass the highest plastic furniture standard in the country - the Level 5 of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) - ISO 7173. With its mission to provide top-notch products and cater to consumers' desire for durable, value-for-money items, Uratex Monoblock is a clear choice for those who want to make their home, workplace, or establishment as stylish and functional as possible!


Why Bawal Ang Marupok?
Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the brand launched the Bawal ang Marupok campaign with the goal to educate and equip the market on how to be keen and discerning when it comes to investing in plastic chairs and to avoid marupok or brittle ones that can potentially harm them. One of the ways that the brand emphasized is to check the warning label to see if the chair has PS certification and recommended seat load capacity for safety and assurance.

Moreover, the campaign aims to highlight the brand’s ongoing thrust and purpose to nurture and protect its consumers by providing top-notch quality products that are not just ergonomic in its design but also durable and will stand the test of time.


In the recently held campaign media launch at Eton Centris, on January 17, 2023, Uratex Monoblock conducted a forum led by Uratex Monoblock Business Unit Director Dindo Medina, Department of Trade & Industry-Bureau of Philippine Standards (DTI-BPS) Assistant Director Ferdinand L. Manfoste and Department of Science & Technology - Forest Products Research & Development Institute (DOST-FPRDI) Deputy Director Rico Cabangon as part of the panel. During the panel discussion, Mr. Medina explained the objective, rationale, and inspiration behind the Bawal Ang Marupok campaign. As for Mr. Ferdinand Manfoste and Mr. Rico Cabangon they explained why Uratex Monoblock chairs easily pass, if not exceed industry's standards. Both industry experts shared their insights on the safety and durability of Uratex Monoblock chairs.


“Uratex Monoblock’s passion has always been to provide our consumers with quality items,” Mr. Medina shared. “With the Bawal ang Marupok campaign, we aim to further communicate Uratex Monoblock’s standard for excellent craftsmanship, as well as to educate consumers to be more discerning of the quality and durability of plastic chairs as they value the safety of their family.”


Apart from industry experts, Mommy celebrities, Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio and Camille Prats Yambao graced the event to share their thoughts and actual experiences – highlighting their role as a mom to be alert and well-informed with regards to buying quality household items for the home.

“For me, my family’s safety always comes first,” Rica shared. “Whenever I purchase items for our home, I always consider how the item can serve our family. Is it safe? Is it durable? Can it last for a long time?” “Monobloc chairs have been a Filipino household staple, but I agree that not all are made the same,” Camille said. “I really agree with Uratex Monoblock’s campaign, bawal talaga ang marupok. It’s really an invitation for every Filipino home to give importance to products that are safe and durable,” she added.


Media invitees were also given a short walk-through of how Uratex Monoblock chairs are being tested before they go out to the market. They also got to participate in various strength tests that ensure the durability of Uratex Monoblock chairs. This is what I think is called the stress test.

Uratex Monoblock chairs come in various designs and styles and are both BPS and ISO Level 5 certified. They are guaranteed safe and durable, can withstand time, and can hold up to 200 kilos. With its recent campaign launch, Uratex Monoblock is a living proof that quality and durability matters – Bawal ang Marupok!

I Trust U, #ITrustUratex and Here are 5 Reasons Why

3:59:00 AM

Trust is something that you don’t easily get but something that is earned through time. Just like the brand that we truly trust… the Uratex brand. Since the day that we've known Uratex it has been our tradition to look out for the name of the brand, especially on beds, pillows, chairs and tables.

To know more about Uratex we did get a chance to visit their plantation in Alabang. It is a learning experience for us who loves the brand very much. During the tour we learned so much that any ordinary individual would only think of. What’s more interesting with the plantation tour is that we've learned that the products produced by Uratex came from quality materials. They are really providing the best product for their customers.
