FDNY code requires that all decorations and materials used for artistic enhancement be flameproofed (fireproofed). This code applies to all public buildings, which includes theaters, department stores, restaurants, bars, night clubs, public halls and hotels (main areas, not guest rooms). All drapery used for aesthetic enhancement and decoration must be flame proofed (fire proofed) legally. NYC Flameproofing provides the flame proofing service required by law, and is certified to issue NYC flameproofing affidavits upon completion of our flame proofing service - exactly what is needed to clear up any NYC flameproofing violations.
According to the FDNY, over 26,000 structural fires occurred in New York City in 2010 alone. In order to avoid incurring huge costs as a result of the damage caused by a fire, drapes used in public areas should be fire proofed. When drapery is flameproofed, it becomes resistant to spreading fire and also helps prevent new fires from starting. The risk to life and property in a structural fire can be significantly reduced by flame proofing drapes in NYC.
Flame proofing drapes can be done on- or off-site, although on-site is easier, as it limits the time and expense of removing and reinstalling the drapery. Fire proofing can be done by either coating or soaking the drapes in the fire retardant.
