  All you need to know about flame retardant fabrics

  Ensuring that curtains and curtains are flame-retardant is essential for all types of spaces such as theaters, churches, or rural auditoriums. Some fabrics are more flammable than others, so those more flammable fabrics can burn more slowly, reducing fire hazards and meeting safety standards.

  Fire protection clause

  IFR-intrinsic flame retardancy refers to fabrics that are woven with natural flame-retardant fibers and meet fire protection standards without the use of other chemicals.

  DFR-durable flame retardant means that the fabric is flame-retardant in its manufacturing process and can withstand multiple washes before it needs to be treated to meet standards.

  NDFR-durable flame retardant is related to fabrics that have been burned for a long time. However, if they are in contact with liquids, the materials need to be processed to meet flammability requirements. These fabrics can only be dry cleaned.

  CBFR-can is made into a flame retardant, indicating that the fabric is not currently flame retardant, but it can be processed in accordance with meat public places regulations and become DFR or NDFR.

  CNFR-cannot is made into a flame retardant, which means that the fabric (such as metal or certain synthetic fiber fabrics) cannot be regarded as meeting the British standard and should not be used in public places.

  Flame retardant treatment

  When buying curtains for your premises, it is vital to ensure that the fabric is treated to meet its standards and have a certificate to prove it. This standard has two different parts, which are suitable for different applications and environments.

  Type B

  Type B is the standard for curtains used in hotels, public buildings, and offices. Place the fabric on a metal frame and apply a flame to the surface for 15 seconds before and after cleaning. If the following conditions are met, the fabric passes the test:

  The flame did not reach any edge of the fabric,

  No burning debris fell from the fabric.

  Type C

  Type C is the code for hanging curtains in hospitals and medical environments. Before and after washing (for example, 50 items of washing), test the fabric again. Hang it on a metal frame and apply flames on the fabric surface for 5, 15, 20, and 30 seconds. Then, if the following conditions are met, the fabric passes the test:

  The afterglow and afterglow do not exceed 2.5 seconds,

  The flame did not reach any edge of the fabric,

  No burning debris fell from the fabric.
