About our Flame Retardant Bedding
British Standard 7175 Source 7
Polyester is inherently flame retardant and our sheets are woven using 76 ends of Trevira and 68 picks of Polyester (warp and weft). The advantage of Flame Retardant Polyester is that multiple washes do not effect the fabrics flame retardancy. Non-polyester fabrics which are proban treated leech through washing reducing the flame retardancy over time.
This loomstate fabric is dyed to shade and cut and sewn into bed linen.The fabric has been tested by an independent test house and has been accredited with British Standard 7175-Crib 7 Source 7 the ignitability of bedcovers and pillows by smouldering ignition sources.
Finishing agents now used in production of polyester are such that the feel of the linen is similar to a polycotton blend. Therefore, the historical negative perception of polyester being a harsh fabric has been overcome through these improved dyeing and finishing processes
