Trevira CS – Flame retardant textiles for the maritime sector

THE FABRIC THAT SAILS THE SEVEN SEAS

The special requirements relating to the safety of passengers on cruise ships mean that particularly stringent fire protection regulations govern this sector. These regulations apply internationally and are enforced through legislation based on resolutions passed by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation). The requirements for burn tests are set out in the FTP Codes.

Trevira supports its customers in obtaining certification for their Trevira CS textiles by giving them access to all the information required for the application process. This speeds things up so that flame retardant Trevira CS fabrics can be put to use on board ship more quickly. 

Alongside fire protection regulations, it goes without saying that flame retardant Trevira CS textiles meet the demands of designers and architects when it comes to creating an exclusive environment for passengers on luxury liners.
