Flame retardant textiles for the maritime sector

This month our focus is the cruise sector, we took this opportunity to discuss textile requirements with Trevira CS. The special requirements relating to the safety of passengers on cruise ships include particularly stringent fire protection regulations which also govern the sector of interior furnishing. Flame retardant Trevira CS fabrics can pass the relevant requirements of international home textiles fire safety standards including the IMO regulations for the maritime sector.

Alongside fire protection regulations, it goes without saying that flame retardant Trevira CS textiles meet the demands of designers and architects when it comes to creating an exclusive environment for passengers on luxury liners. The permanently flame retardant fabrics can be used in all interior textile applications on cruise ships like drapes, decorative fabrics, upholstery materials, sunscreen systems, wall coverings or bedding textiles.

The shipping industry requires fabrics for both indoor and outdoor use, hence there are very high demands on the textiles.

Materials for indoor use must comply with fire safety regulations, whereas materials for outdoor use require high performance with regard to resistance to light and tearing.

In order to produce high-performing and well-designed textiles, Trevira offers 30 UV-stable, spun-dyed filament yarns, ranging from bright to natural look colours. Spun-dyed yarns, i.e. yarns dyed by adding colour with the master batch to the spinning mass, have a high degree of light resistance and are more sustainable than yarn-dyed products.

Once a board, Trevira CS fabrics welcome guests and ensure that they are surrounded by safe and exclusive fabrics.
