Is Artificial Grass Fire Retardant?
Artificial grass is widely used for landscaping, and now an increasing number of households start to use artificial grass as an indoor decoration because of its beauty and durability. As artificial grass becomes more widely used indoors, flame retardancy is becoming more important.
In this article:
Is artificial grass fire retardant?
Yes, but not all artificial grass is fireproof.
Artificial grass itself does not have fire resistance properties. Its flame retardant series is achieved by adding FR additives during the yarn production process.
The fire retardant effect of artificial grass is shown in that the grass fiber will self-extinguish after being burned by fire. In this way, it will not cause a large area of burning caused by mutual ignition.
In addition, artificial grass with sand infill performs better in terms of flame retardant because the sand also has fire extinguishing effect, which prevents fire from spreading.
Is it necessary to choose fire retardant artificial grass?
Fire retardant artificial grass is undoubtedly safer, but flame retardant performance is not a necessary standard for testing artificial turf. As a kind of functional artificial grass, a fire retardant series is a good option for indoors.
Especially in densely populated public places such as hotels, kindergartens, shopping malls, and office spaces, emergencies are difficult to control. Therefore, in order to avoid possible fire hazards, we strongly recommend that you choose fire retardant artificial grass.
Decorating fire retardant artificial grass in a commercial environment not only provides safety, but it also provides you with:
- Immaculate natural, green lawn creating a well-presented environment all year round.
- Low maintenance required allowing for costs to be reduced in site management.
- Easy to clean.
- Child and pet friendly, with an allergy-free promise.
