USITT - Forum@4- Fire Safety and Your Drapes, Are You Prepared?

Webinar description: Fire safety on stages is a big issue. On theatre stages, the presence of hot lights, props and electrical sparks near flammable textiles significantly increases the risk of fire. The flame retardant on them forms an important part of your facility's fire safety system. The presentation will explain existing codes, review different test methods, discuss flame retardant treatments for drapes, provide information on applying flame retardant treatments to draperies and how to care for them.

Presenter: Brad Davies (@On-Site Drapery Cleaners). Mr. Davies has been in the fire protection business since 2008 when he purchased On-Site Drapery Cleaners. Founded in 1978, On-Site has grown to be the experts in same day curtain cleaning and flameproofing. Having tested and re-treated thousands of textiles, Mr. Davies has years of field experience, has been an NFPA member for years, has also published numerous articles on flame retardant testing and treatment, and has the privilege of being invited to discuss textiles and the fire code with many Safety Officials, Theater Professional Groups, and Fire Prevention Officers, most recently at the Fire and Emergency Services Training Institute (FESTI).
