Fire retardant fabrics

Flame retardant: the property which resists combustion and protects against fire. This is the idea behind flame retardant fabrics, but what does it actually mean? Well, what it doesn’t mean is that fire retardant fabrics do not burn; they do.  However, they do so without generating a flame, which, in turn, prevents the rapid spread of fire.

When decorating a space, we choose fabrics for their aesthetic characteristics and their decorative qualities as well as for the use we want to give them, the colors with which we want to decorate our rooms, and for the ages of those who are going to enjoy them. Likewise, depending on their location and purpose (for example, contract spaces or spaces for collective use), we also look for certain characteristics and technical properties that will either reduce risk (fire-retardant) or will improve our sensory experiences, not only those associated with sight or touch, but also those which appeal to the ear (acoustic fabrics).

FIRE RETARDANT FABRIC FOR CURTAINS

Theatres, performance areas, hotels, and auditoriums are all environments that may -- or should -- require the use of flame-retardant fabrics for curtains in order not only to decorate, but also to protect audiences, clients, or anyone else who may pass through these different spaces.

Because of its delicate appearance, nobody would say that the plain

100% Trevira CS muslin cloth like that in our Basel line, for example, is a fire-retardant fabric. However, in addition to its simplicity and quality, Basel is also a safe choice due to its fire-retardant characteristics.

The same goes for Marley, a semi-transparent acoustic and fire-retardant net curtain with an embossed thin-stripe design, as well as for Omega, a 100% Trevira CS curtain fabric with a semi-plain pattern and elegant drape.

FIRE RETARDANT FABRICS FOR HOTELS

A total of seventy-five contract fabrics: that’s what Equipo DRT’s versatile Orfeo line offers individuals, interior designers, architects, design lovers, and professionals. Orfeo is a collection of washable fire-retardant and acoustic fabrics that meets the standards of the most avant-garde hotels.

Orfeo offers nine innovative designs: Cobain, Mercuri, Lennon, Harrison, Bowie, Hendrix, Prince, Elvis, and Marley. In these fabrics, various colors of non-glossy threads are combined to create a double-sided, reversible fabric. In addition to being semi-opaque, these very natural fabrics have a luxurious drape and come in both light and dark colors ranging from natural beige to marengo, with colors such as stone, gray, and khaki among its wide color range.

Hotels are spaces where physical and emotional well-being depends largely on acoustic comfort: silence, disconnection, and harmony are all sought after in this environment. Our flame-retardant fabrics for hotels provide this comfort since they not only reduce the reverberation of sounds and echoes inside the room, but also reduce noise from outside by 50%. In global calculations based on laboratory tests, the sound absorption thus achieved is 0.6 out of 1, the highest range on the scale.

Fabrics that are both acoustic and fire-retardant form an indivisible binomial due to their technical qualities, keeping them in high demand. Among these types of fabrics designed and developed by Equipo DRT, our linen fabric, flame-retardant Kibo Coex FR fabric stands out. This linen cloth has a technical innovation that prevents it from generating a flame; that is, although the fabric can catch fire and burn, it does not burst into flame thanks to the molecular structure of the fibers. For this reason, Kibo Coex FR is an exceptional fabric for hotels, where it offers beautiful design with the best fire-retardant properties.

FIRE RETARDANT FABRICS FOR AUDITORIUMS

Fire-retardant fabrics for auditoriums and public spaces represent an intelligent and conscientious choice to reduce risks; moreover, they help the spaces where they are installed comply with current regulations on design projects for collective-use spaces.

It is a quality that our Ceres and Dedalo lines possess: they are both fire-retardant and made of acoustically absorbent fabrics. This not only lowers the risk of fire hazards, but also helps reduce the different sounds and noises coming from outside the venue so that audiences can better enjoy concerts, plays, presentations, or any other staged event, all while being surrounded by aesthetically pleasing fabrics.
