Common sites requiring fire-retardant window treatments include any public domains such as schools, colleges, senior housing, theaters and stages, meeting halls, churches etc. One of the most flammable fire accelerators in any home are fabrics like upholstery, bed sheets, curtains and drapes that’s why it is worth investing in fire retardant drapes to protect your homes and family.
