Keeping Patrons Safe in Your Venue:
Understanding the Benefits of Flame Retardant Treatments
Enhancing Safety with Flame Retardant Treatments:
While no material is entirely fireproof, flame retardant treatments aim to retard ignition and slow the spread of fire. Specialty Theatre’s powerful chemical solution significantly lowers the ignition temperature of the treated fabric, reducing the risk of flames. Our specialised treatment inhibits flame production, releases inert gases when exposed to fire, and develops a non-combustible char. Fabrics treated with our solution may ignite but self-extinguish within two seconds after the flame is withdrawn.
Ensuring Effective Curtain Flame Retardant Treatment:
Professional Application for Optimal Results
Expert Application for Effective Flame Retardancy:
Our experienced technicians apply our high-quality flame retardant products in sufficient quantity for optimal coverage. Following treatment, the fabric’s weight increases by approximately 10-20% when fully dried, indicating successful application. Our chemical solution is water-soluble, allowing for easy removal through laundering and water exposure. Single occurrences of dry cleaning does not alter materials treated with our product, provided the solvent is moisture and detergent-free. We recommend retesting fabrics after dry cleaning to maintain flame retardancy.
