Wool is naturally flame-resistant, making it an excellent choice for your home and offering greater fire safety than other fibres. In addition, wool does not melt, drip or stick to the skin when it burns.
Wool’s inherent fire resistance comes from its naturally high nitrogen and water content, requiring higher levels of oxygen in the surrounding environment to burn. Wool may be ignited if subjected to a significantly powerful heat source, but it does not normally support flame, and will instead smoulder, usually only for a short time. In addition, wool’s cross-linked cell membrane structure will swell when heated to the point of combustion, forming an insulating layer that prevents the spread of flame. This also means that wool produces less smoke and toxic gas than synthetic fibres.
Wool carpeting has always been considered the highest quality carpet, but without treatment, a wool rug in front of a fireplace can be a hazard. Always check to see if the fine rug you buy is fire-retardant certified.
Made of 100% natural wool and 100% natural dyes, our rugs have passed the Japanese Fire Department’s flame-retardant performance test and have been certified as flame-retardant.
Therefore, it can be used safely in your homes, stores, and public areas like; theaters, hotels, malls, hospitals, etc.
