According to the relevant norms all textiles delivered by DELIUS are permanently flame retardant. For all furnishing and upholstery fabrics DELIUS uses high quality yarns made from Polyester FR or Trevira CS. Textiles made out of these fibres contain a built-in safety feature. DELIUS textiles offer long-term protection, unlike fabrics which have been subsequently treated with chemicals. This small but relevant difference results from the chemical construction of the polyester fibre: the flame retardant properties are firmly enclosed in the fibre. They cannot be changed by exterior influences.
One is obliged to use flame retardant fabrics in almost all public buildings. These safety regulations, for example, apply to the public areas of hotels, schools, kindergartens, office buildings, caring homes and cinemas.The fire risk in buildings can be lowered substantially by these governmentally prescribed measures. Textiles by DELIUS fulfil the most important flame retardancy norms worldwide.DELIUS cooperates with various laboratories in order to carry out burning tests, in order to issue test reports, to obtain building inspection approvals and to organize certificates. On our Internet site you will find the relevant certificates for every article.
