5 FLAMMABILITY RATINGS

In the hospitality industry safety is of utmost importance. We’ve discussed some other safety related topics in blogs such as “How do I ensure that a hotel property meets Child Safety Specifications?”, “ADA Code for Hospitality Window Treatments”, and “What is Blocking?” Today we are excited to discuss the topic of Fabric Flammability Ratings. In order to pass safety inspections all fabric used within a hotel or healthcare property must be certified as Fire Retardant.
