Bricos Group releases code-standard FR fabric
Centro blind fabric has a subtle canvas weave and is available in 10 blockout colours that have a soft micro-flocked blockout backing and four Project colours designed to coordinate with darker tone sunscreens.
Centro Project colours are identifiable by their grey backing and are a popular choice when there is a requirement for external uniformity and for a matching blockout fabric with dark shades of translucent or screen fabrics, confirms Mark Wood, Bricos Group national sales manager.
“This new commercial blockout range offers a raft of qualities, the most significant being that Centro is a responsible interior blind fabric choice with suitability for class 2-9A buildings as required by Building Code of Australia - Fire Hazard Properties of Materials in Buildings.”
Many people are misled by Fire Retardancy certificates, Wood says.
“When a product is tested for Fire Retardancy, testing authorities in Australia deliver a certificate that indicates the product’s FR rating according to a fire retardancy scale; however this rating does not mean that the product is suitable for all applications under Australia’s Building Code.”
In other parts of the world, the test method itself determines whether the window furnishing fabric meets Fire Retardant approval or not.
“In Australia, testing doesn’t determine a fail or a pass, it merely determines the level of fire retardancy. However now that Centro is part of the Bricos range, our customers can proceed with confidence.”
Centro is offered in 2800mm width and is described as a stable, easy to handle and fabricate product with excellent lay flat qualities.
