Camira meets new fire-retardant standards
The two product ranges are now enhanced with additional flame retardants, enabling them to pass both a vertical flammability test, as well as a horizontal test, requirements of the new standard. The additional protection comes as ECE Reg. 118.03 becomes mandatory for first registrations of all Class II and Class III vehicles within the M3 category from 26 July.
These lightweight non-woven products are intended for roof linings, wall sides, seat backs and luggage compartments in transport applications. Designed to coordinate with plush moquettes, flat cloths and other ancillary trims, they are both available in a choice of 12 colourways.
Noting this regulatory change in the bus and coach sector, Head of European Transport Sales, Peter Daly, said: “While we have been working on enhancing all of our bus and coach fabrics to meet the new ECE Reg 118.03 for some years now, we are delighted to be able to extend our offering to this highly sought after synthetic trim fabric. Knowing how popular our standard non-FR trim products are with our customers, we hope that we have solved a problem for many operators and manufacturers working on first registrations of all vehicles affected.”
