When sourcing canvas fabric for use with or around the general public, its best to go for a durable and trustworthy treated fire retardant fabric. Our KBT extra wide calico fire retardant fabric measures 300 cm wide, this larger width is most popular for large scale projects. We use Proban to coat our fabric to the BS5867 Type 2 part B safety standard. Proban is a registered trademark, any fabrics treated with Proban must meet part of the licensee agreement which means fabrics are made to last and are put through a vigorous test for their wash durability.
Most public events like food and drink fairs or music and arts events usually need to be checked by health and safety officials, so using fire retardant fabric is often expected in these situations. The larger width, strength and durability of our fire retardant the fabric makes it perfect for use with event designs, you can drape the fabric or cover a large space without having to see seams and joins in the fabric.
