Flame Retardancy Standards & Codes
When choosing fabric for drapes, curtain and backdrops, it is important to consider safety and financial issues such as:
- What is the fabric's primary use and where will it be used
- What sort wear and tear can be expected
- How long you will be using it for
- What budget do you have for its care and maintenance
- What standards and codes you have to adhere to.
Some information is provided below about what various flame retardancy standards and what flammability codes indicate. However, if you need any advice about what fabric choices to make, please call us on 03 327 0975 during normal working hours or contact us online.
