How To Choose Your Flame Retardant (Part 1 - Fabrics)

by Rose Brand 6. July 2010 08:24

One of our priorities at Rose Brand is to help you maintain an appropriate level of soft goods fire safety and to guide you in your choice of fabric products and FR chemicals. Since FR laws and codes are instituted on a local level, and your local fire marshals or building inspector has the final authority to approve your use of products, invite them into the discussion early. We recommend that you treat and pre-test samples of all of your substrates and then have them approved by the relevant fire safety authority in your area prior to installation.

We've prepared the following chart that is intended to be a starting point for FR product selection. We've matched some of our most popular fabric substrates with their appropriate FR solution treatment. Just click on the "X" to get more information about each FR product.  Of course, satisfactory fire resistance depends on proper identification of substrates and proper application of the chemical according to the manufacturer's directions.
