The field of flame retardant foams is very diverse.
- In the private sector
As a rule, there are no regulations here and you can use almost any material.
It’s your common sense that counts here – consider where fire could occur (electrical appliances, sockets, cigarettes, motors, etc.) and then decide on the appropriate foam depending on the use of the rooms (artists’ studios, basement workshops, sports rooms, children’s rooms, etc.).
- In the workplace area of your own company, in sound studios, in office complexes or halls, in restaurants or event venues.
Different regulations often apply here.
Here you should contact the local municipality or fire brigade before purchasing and enquire about the necessary fire protection. In most cases, however, you may only use flame-retardant materials here.
- In public facilities
These include schools, day-care centres, universities, sports facilities, etc.
In these places where many people gather, materials must be used that can be assigned to the fire protection standards DIN 4102 B1, DIN M1 or the European standard EN 13501-1. This means that the materials must be flame-retardant.
