COTTON FIRE BARRIER
A schedule 3 fire barrier made in cotton which is fused to the back of fabrics to be used for upholstery. This process minimizes the upholsterer’s time and energy in production as the face fabric has been laminated with the fire barrier therefore creating a single substrate for faster application.
A schedule 3 fire barrier protects some of the harmful foam used in upholstered furniture from being exposed. The Cotton Fire Barrier meets BS 5852 CRIB 5 & I.M.O FTP Code 2010 Part B without compromising the quality or durability of the fabric.*Face fabric must be FR Treated before sending for backing service.
Fire Barrier interliner is far superior to back coating finish as this process involves applying a flame retardant paste to the reverse side of the fabric and is then heat cured. Whereas this Fire Barrier is a fabric laminated to the back of a material greatly reducing concerns of any wet adhesive seeping through or changing the colour and handle of the face fabric.

Where do you use this?
Fabrics especially used for upholstery must meet British flammability standards for commercial applications such as:
Protects against wear-and-tear
Engineered to obstruct the process of a fire from penetrating into the foam or padding of furniture.
Maintains the original quality of your material
Adds strength and thickness for enhanced durability.
Fabrics laminated become a single substrate with no air pockets and a single source of friction.
Much easier to cut and sew
Meets BS 5852 CRIB 5 & I.M.O FTP Code 2010 Part B
Materials can be safely dry cleaned
Service Code: FRB/01 (Cotton Fire Barrier)
Composition: 100% Cotton
Fire Classification: BS 5852 CRIB 5 & I.M.O FTP Code 2010 Part B
*Face fabric must be FR Treated before sending for backing service.
It is recommended you send a fabric sample once processed with the service(s) required to a verified fire testing laboratory to test and receive certification of compliance for your intended application as a finished product.
