Fire prevention in public spaces has recently received increased attention. When choosing a fabric for ceiling draping it is important to recognize whether the fabric is fire protected. Fabric is fire protected when it is inherently flame resistant or it has been treated with a flame-retardant chemical. Inherently flame resistant fibers are materials that have flame resistance built into their chemical structures. The actual structure of the fiber itself is not flammable. With fabric that is not inherently flame resistant, a flame-retardant chemical can be applied at the Mill or by a flameproofer. Before you buy fabric make sure the product you are buying is fire protected. If the product description does not disclose that it is fire protected, be sure to ask if it is before you buy.
All four of the fabrics FabricDraper.com offers, Poly Silk, Poly Organza, Nylon Sheer and Nylon Tulle, are inherently flame resistant or have been treated with a flame-retardant chemical at the Mill or by a flameproofer.
