CFCA Recognizes MLM's FR Technology

The California Fire Chiefs Association (CFCA) presented its 2002 Award for Innovation in Fire Protection to Charlotte-based McKinnon-Land-Moran (MLM) LLC's upholstered furniture flame resistant (FR) barrier technologies. When used together in upholstery or mattresses, MLM's Alessandra® woven FR barrier fabric and Basofil® FR highloft nonwoven prevent flames from penetrating the polyurethane foam, and reduce the smoke and heat released during a fire.

Before and after shots show how well an upholstered chair featuring Alessandra® and Basofil® fiber technoloies survived when burned to the CAI 133 standard.


"We believe the Alessandra and Basofil fiber highloft flame resistant barriers are new and significant technologies that will reduce the severity of home and commercial fires and help save lives," said John Malmquist, executive director, CFCA.
