Fireproof fabric blinds thanks to FireTex

According to the Swiss VKF Fire regulations, sun-shading products installed in multi-storey buildings over 30m high are subject to special stipulations.  With the new fabric FireTex, Schenker Storen offers a solution that complies in full with the VKF’s specifications!

The fireproof fibreglass fabric FireTex is already certified by the VKF - Schenker Storen is the only Swiss supplier offering an RF1-classified cloth (flame retardant and no toxic fumes). This means the fabric can be used in all tower blocks subject to the conditions for multi-storey buildings or where greater demands are made on fire protection measures.

Since according to SIA 342, sun-shading products in multi-storey buildings over 30m must be wind class 5 as a minimum, the fabric is particularly suitable for VSe ZIP and VSe EBA. The fabric can basically be used at the customer’s request, but also with other vertical fabric blinds. FireTex fabrics are available in five colours.
