It also meets Class A flame retardancy standards.Use of the fabric in commercial buildings contributes to the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Commercial Interiors (LEED®-CI) credits.
"Our customers told us they wanted an alternative to vinyl for wall treatments, for a myriad of reasons, but fabric was previously problematic because of potential staining," said Randy Rubin, president, Crypton. "Mixing stain resistant, flame retardant, low emission and eco-friendly fibers is not an easy task — but we did it."
Crypton reports the wall fabric, which may be easily cleaned with an enzyme detergent or soap and water, is especially suitable for healthcare and hospitality applications.
