For 2021 and specifically for the UK, Manutti has launched a set of 10 UK Fire Retardant fabrics that meet BS5852 requirements that are suitable for all professional use. There are 10 fabrics in the main collection that have passed the relevant Cigarette match test (ignition source 0) and the butane flame test (ignition source 1). For larger orders with over 200 meters of fabric required, Manutti is able to offer testing to meet the BS5852 requirements on the whole Manutti fabric collection that would add a further 45 fabrics to choose from. The foam for the fire-retardant cushions will be high resilience Indoor Foam to match the fabric protection. If customers choose the fire-retardant option then it should be noted that the cushions must be kept dry so they should either be taken indoors or a Manutti tailor-made protective cover is recommended, when not in use.
The tailor-made protective covers are a product feature in their own right making the products look elegant even when the weather is not up to sitting outside.
