Flame Retardancy

The stringent regulations applied to textiles in public or high-risk environments are recognised by Whitakers. With this in mind, our range of flame retardancy products have been increased to meet demand.

The majority of our products are inherently flame retardant or finished according to specification. These include bed line and coverings, curtains, blankets and filled products and filled products such as duvets and pillows.

The Whitakers range of fire retardant bedding has been created specifically to adhere to the highest fire retardancy standard of B.S.7175 Ignition Source 7.

B.S.7175 details the test procedures needed to measure the resistance of bed covers and bedding and ignited by a number of flaming sources ranging from 0; a lit cigarette, 1-3; a burner or butane flame and 4-7; a wooden crib comprised of wooden planks, glued together with lint attached to the bottom.

British Standard specifications are adhered to and in conjunction with accredited test laboratories in the UK and we’ve worked alongside fire and rescue services in testing our products. Our research and development team is at the forefront of textile technologies, constantly working to achieve stringent fire protection requirements and longevity of our products in high risk and harsh environments.
