Water based fire proofing spray for Fabrics and Paper

Protect your fabrics and paper from fire with our Firecheck™ flame retardant spray. Firecheck™ can effectively limit fire damage and spread on many natural and synthetic materials; any item that can absorb it can be treated.

Fireproofing materials just got easier with Firecheck™, a water-based fire protection spray. It's designed for use on any water absorbent material and is easy to apply with no need for specialist equipment.

This is a tried and tested, water based, fire proofing spray that will treat any water absorbent material. The non-toxic formula means no specialist equipment is required for application. Ideal alternative to Flamebar and Flamecheck. It’s designed for use on artwork and in any location where open flames are often near fabrics. This makes it especially suitable for theatres – protecting drapes, costumes, scenery, etc. – and for high-end restaurants which place candles at tables or serve tableside flambés.

This spray treats the surface of the fabric or paper. When heat is applied, the treated surface forms an inert, carbonised shield – reflecting heat away and preventing the gasses which support and fuel combustion from escaping. The result is a surface which is radically more resistant to fire.

Firecheck™ is a flame retardant spray that will treat anything that will absorb water. Simply apply a fine mist to all exposed surface areas of the article requiring treatment. It is supplied ready to use and is colourless, odourless and non toxic.

How does Firecheck™ work?

Once Firecheck™ is absorbed into the material it forms an invisible barrier layer. This layer forms a carbonised shield under heat, deflecting a lot of the heat and making it harder for the treated material to catch.

Can I treat any fabric with Firecheck™?

Firecheck™ can treat most natural and synthetic fabrics.

As new fabrics are being developed, we advise that you test a small sample or inconspicuous area of these new fabrics before applying a full treatment.

Firecheck can be used to treat scenic flats for the stage before painting. Alternatively, if you’re using powder or concentrated scenic paints, consider diluting them with Firecheck™ instead of with water.

What can’t Firecheck™ treat?

Waxed cardboard, plastics, waterproofed fabrics, and painted or varnished services will not absorb Firecheck™ and so the process does not work. We are familiar with several products which may solve your problem – please contact us for advice. Unfortunately, Firecheck™ cannot treat rip stop nylon. If Firecheck™ comes into contact with any metal surface - wipe clean immediately.

How much Firecheck™ is needed?

Firecheck™ is an economical fluid. 1 litre will cover between 10 to 12 square metres. It is supplied ready for use and should not be diluted.

Firecheck™ has a shelf life of several years. Store it upright and at temperatures of above zero. Shake gently if your Firecheck™ has not been used in six months.

How do I apply Firecheck™ treatment?

Make sure the article to be treated is clean and dry. We recommend using Firecheck™ in a well-ventilated area. Apply a fine mist of Firecheck™ to all exposed surfaces. You do not need to soak the item. Firecheck™ is colourless and odourless. Once the treated article is dried it is virtually unnoticeable and ready for immediate use.

Firecheck™ will last naturally for the useful life of the treated article. However, if it is subjected to heavy use, including scrapes or other damage, or if it comes into contact with water, we recommend a further application.
