Fire Retardant Spraying for Dried Plants: Merging Aesthetic Beauty with Safety in Modern Design

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

Dried flowers are increasingly becoming designers' favorites due to their longevity, versatility, and unique aesthetics. Their sustainability, cost-effectiveness, and ability to infuse spaces with vintage or rustic vibes are undeniable. However, their high flammability, especially in public spaces, necessitates the essential safety measure of fire retardant treatment.

Why Fire Resistant Dried Flowers are Essential?

In commercial locales like hotels or restaurants, ensuring dried plants undergo fire retardant spraying isn't merely advisable—it's often mandated for safety regulations. These treatments are particularly essential in places with a high public footfall.

Untreated vs. Treated Dried Plants: A Clear Distinction
