  • Fire Retardant Test of linen to British Standards (Crib on top)

    In prisons, hospitals, detention centres and other secure units it is imperative and indeed a legal obligation to ensure fire retardant bed linen is issued. This bed linen must comply with BS 7175: 1989 Ignition Source 7 passing the crib test placed at both the top and below the sample. The video shows this test and the flaming combustion must self extinguish in a pre-defined time as the fabric retracts away from the flame and self extinguishes.
