Testing Your Fabric
Is your fabric fire retardant? Don’t assume. If your unsure for any reason, don’t chance it, we can test it for you. Our fire retardancy testing service ensures piece of mind so you can get on with the job at hand. We will test the fabric on various levels to find out its capability. If the fabric is to be used in public places such as hotels, coffee shops and restaurants, it needs to reach the British Safety Standards levels titled BS5852 BS5852 (1979).
There are many situations where fabric is ready to be used for a large project, but proof on its fire safety can’t always be found. Some choose to ignore this obvious warning to their detriment, leading to legal issues and unfortunately in the worst cases, fire.
What Happens Next?
Once your fabric is tested, if it passes the tests needed to reach British Safety Standards we will provide documentation on the tests and the all important official certification that your fabric is ready to go.
