Flame retardant braids – safer for the home

Ibex Marina Ropes have developed a flame retardant soft cotton braid, suitable for soft furnishings and decorations in the home. It is ideal material for making rope hammocks. The 10mm diameter braid was tested to 14 CFR 25 853 Appendix F Part 1 Federal Aviation Regulations – Interior compartments (Vertical burning behaviour of textiles) and EC/95/28 Annex IV Horizontal Burn Test and it was found that samples tested did not ignite under these test conditions.
