INTERLINER FIRE-RESISTANT BS5852 Screen 5: fire-resistant textiles used as a fire barrier between upholstery and foam or upholstered furniture fillings.

The fire resistance properties of upholstered furniture have become a growing concern. And a must in public spaces in all developed countries.

The concept of an intermediate layer (interliner) that acts as a fire barrier can prevent accidental contact with the fire from igniting the internal filling of the furniture. It also allows the outer layers to be easily removed for cleaning.

It is an indispensable requirement for manufacturers supplying furniture to all non-domestic buildings, i.e. those with public attendance such as offices, hotels, hospitals and other sectors such as schools, auditoriums, entertainment venues, cinemas, discos, concert halls, prisons etc… to use interliners and materials that are duly certified according to the regulations applicable in each country.

The English BS 5852 standard is very strict.
