ABOUT US

FR-ONE ONLY THE BEST

FR-One Fire Retardant Fabrics is the industry-leader in Inherently Fire-Retardant (IFR) furnishing fabrics for contract, hospitality, and residential use. FR-One Fire Retardant fabrics will not propagate the spread of flames, meaning that they will assist in containing flames by their self-extinguishing characteristics. It is important to remember that if your FR fabric is not certified FR-One, it is not an FR-One fabric.

NUMBER ONE QUALITY AND TESTING

All FR-One Fire Retardant fabrics are rigorously tested in independent, certified laboratories and testing houses. In order to preserve the Inherent Flame-Retardant characteristics of FR-One fabrics, it is imperative to refuse any additional treatments or finishes as it may affect or alter the fabric’s Inherent Fire Retardant characteristics and quality. When FR-One fabrics are washed, there is no release of any harmful finish whatsoever.FR-One fabrics are high performance products. We test our fabrics for durability, colour fastness, stability and strength. All FR-One fabrics are fully washable. Our fabrics have strong sound absorption properties; tested under ISO 354-11654 most of our designs are classified as ‘Extremely Absorbing’ category A and B.

STANDARDS

SPANISH STANDARDS

Spain has its own specific standards for Fire Retardant contract fabrics and follows the European regulations for Fire Retardant contract fabrics. Fire retardant upholstery and fire retardant curtains are mandatory for hospitality, yachts, and public buildings. Selecting FR-One fabrics will ensure compliance with these standards.

IMO FTPC P7 TEXTILES AND FILMS – FIRE TEST MARINE EQUIPMENT

A specimen of the fabric for maritime use to be tested is oriented vertically. A flame is applied to it to determine the burning behavior.

VIEW MORE

TEST METHOD

The test specimen is placed in a vertical metal frame. A flame is applied to the surface and to the bottom edge of a test sample. It is observed whether ignition occurs. After flame time, burnthrough to the edges, burning droplets (by means of a cotton wool pad), the charred length and the possibility of surface flash are observed.

This includes: IMO Res. A563 (14) – amendments to the recommendation on test method for determining the resistance to flame of vertically supported textiles and films; IMO Res. A471 (XII) – recommendation on test method for determining the resistance to flame of vertically supported textiles films.

PART 8: TEST FOR UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE

This includes: IMO Res. A652 (16): test for upholstered furniture smouldering cigarette test and butane flame test.

RESULT

The test material passes the test if it shows following characteristics: – after-flame time maximum 5 seconds; – no burn-through to any edges; – no ignition of the cotton wool pad; – average char length maximum 150mm; – no occurrence of a surface flash propagating more than 1mm.

FRENCH NF P 92 503-507 (M1) 503 ELECTRICAL BURNER TEST

A specimen is placed in a specimen holder at 30° above a radiator which gives out heat. A small butane flame is applied directly to the fabric surface. The following aspects are recorded: – duration of the flame; – production of burning droplets; – length/width of the damaged specimen.

FRENCH NF P 92 503-507 (M1) 504 RATE OF FLAME SPREAD TEST

A flame is held against a vertically positioned sample. The after flame time is recorded. The flame spread is calculated by determining the time for the flame to spread between two reference marks. The production of burning droplets is also noted.

FRENCH NF P 92 503-507 (M1) 505 DRIPPING TEST

A sample is placed on a grid under the radiator. A cotton wool pad is placed below it to collect possible droplets. Heat is applied from the radiator. Ignition of the wool pad is recorded.

B2 CLASSIFICATION CONDITIONS

The time to reach the marked point is minimum 20 seconds. The paper doesn’t ignite. The droplets are burning for maximum 2 seconds.

FIRE SHAFT TEST

A test specimen is hung vertically in a test cabinet with a burner in it. It is subjected simultaneously to a flame for 10 minutes and a constant flow of air from below. The temperature of the smoke and the undamaged length of the specimen are measured.

GERMAN DIN 4102 (B1) B2 TEST

The test specimen is put on a specimen holder that is hung in a test cabinet. A burner flame is applied to it for 15 seconds. The time to reach a marked point is measured. Also the burning droplets are observed by means of a paper placed under the specimen.
