Studies show that flame retardant textiles can significantly slow down or even prevent fires.
Fire prevention is regulated by national and international standards, and research into the causes of fire shows that unsuitable textiles can contribute considerably towards a fire spreading. Flame retardant Trevira CS textiles meet the important international standards for fire safety because they are made of fibres and yarns with "built-in safety".
A comparative fire test shows the speed at which a blaze can spread in a room furnished with conventional textiles. But it also shows that it is possible to avoid the risk of fire with flame retardant Trevira CS textiles.
