Fabric Flare treats timber blinds with ‘Duraflam-Duracote®’ Flame Retardant to meet the performance requirements of Class 1 in accordance with BS 476: Part 7. Passive fire protected timber blinds resist and isolate flames.
A key requirement for passive fire resistance concerns public safety and ‘Duraflam-Duracote®’ treated blinds increase the time available for the evacuation of a building, as well as reducing the extent of damage to surrounding property and furnishings.
‘Duracote®’ is a specially formulated intumescent for treating timber blinds. The ‘expansion’ of retardant, when activated by high temperatures, inhibits the surface spread of flame.
A few examples of the type of products processed by Fabric Flare, using its ‘Duraflam-Duracote®’ Flame Retardant System are:
- Venetian Blinds – 25mm, 50mm and 68mm slats (whether received as individual components or as made-up items.
