Fire Retardant Spray

Inspecta-ShieldTM is a versatile, broad spectrum, odourless, colourless, multi-use, penetrating, class 'A' fire retardant (for interior use only). Our pre-mixed product is easy to use, non-toxic, non-allergenic and offers superior fire-retardant protection.

Correct Application

Application rates are established by a thorough series of evaluations before commercial scale treatment. Application rates may vary with weight, density and the building code for which treated materials are intended to comply with.

All items to be treated are tested for: flammability, acceptance, colour fastness (dye running), general texture, shrinkage and appearance (i.e. a shiny fabric could be dulled). All tests are made on a scrap or in an inconspicuous area, wherever possible.
