Fire safety

National and international standards that test the burn behaviour of materials make an essential contribution to preventative fire safety. Through the use of measures prescribed by the state it is possible to reduce the risk of fire in buildings considerably.
Trevira CS textiles meet the important fire standards in place throughout the world. It is a precondition of the issue of the Trevira CS brand that the textile fabric has been tested for flame retardancy.
Trevira works jointly with several test laboratories in undertaking orienteering burn tests, producing test reports, obtaining authorisation for building works and organising certification for these. Detailed information is available about our Certificates and test reports and the opportunities to download.

With special reference to the Swiss market, the bfu safety symbol can be used for curtain fabrics and bedding textiles in Trevira CS.
Please note: When you use the bfu safety symbol for Trevira CS textiles, a respective evidence must be sent to bfu.
