What is Flame Retardants?
Flame retardants play a critical role in reducing the impact fires has on people, property and the environment. They are added to different materials or applied as a treatment to materials such as textiles and plastics to prevent fires from starting, limit the spread of fire and minimise fire damage. Flame retardants allow longer escape times for inhabitants in case of fire as well as allowing longer response time, i.e. more time for the fire brigade to reach the fire. These products are not fireproofing products.
Why do we need Flame Retardants?
Due to the increased use of electronic equipment and plastics, our homes are now filled with more potential fire hazards. Flame retardants should be seen as the hidden protection against fire. The benefits of flame retardants are often noticed only when there is a risk of fire. Flame retardants contribute every day to saving multiple lives as they reduce the likelihood that products will catch fire and if they do ignite, flame retardants slow down the spread of fire.
Where can you use Flame Retardants?
No home, institution, factory, hospital or places of public gathering e.g. theatres, clubs, cinemas, exhibition halls, schools and public events should ever be without the protection offered by our Flame Retardant services. It has also become widely used by campers, caravans and boat owners. It is being used by aircraft and automobile manufacturers, car rental companies and in the industry, in general, to provide protection wherever there is a potential fire hazard.
