Fire Retardant Spraying for Theatre Curtains

Updated: Dec 16, 2023

We are the No.1 choice for fire retardant spraying for West End Theatres including the Sondheim, Noel Coward, Novello, Victoria Palace, and Gielgud, to name a few. We spray curtains, swags, and tails at a time to fit in with their busy schedules. Our service ensures fire retardant protection is kept up to date and certificated to BS 5867 Part 2 Type B.

Fire regulations for theatre curtains

Contract curtains - Curtains intended for use in public areas and commercial buildings must meet the flame-retardant standards outlined in BS 5867 Part 2 Type B or C.

Health & Safety

We can provide method statements, risk assessments, and COSHH data on request to satisfy your H&S representative. The chemicals are non-hazardous so the daily cleaning schedule of the theatre is not interrupted.

Working at height

For curtains higher than seven meters in length, special arrangements can be organized to facilitate spraying. Most spraying, however, can be done using lances that can reach up to seven meters.
