Banners, backdrops and flags used in public venues such as stadiums, theatres, schools, retail units and hospitality centres are required by local legislation to meet certain flame retardancy standards. Venues may ask to see a flame retardancy certificate before the product enters the building or space.

Certification requirements vary by region and country. Here are the most common international flame retardancy standards.

Almost all of the materials used by Banner World have flame retardancy certificates provided by the material manufacturers. These are available to download from individual product pages. Due to the changing nature of safety requirements and industry standards, the Flame Retardant Standard certification of all our fabrics is subject to change.

For some of our most popular materials, we also have instructed our own certifications from an accredited testing laboratory to BS 5867 part 2B – with tests done on our printed fabrics.
