Fire Safe Plants: ThermaLeaf® Foliage vs. Topically Treated Foliage

The most fire safe plants available are plants made using inherently fire retardant foliage where the fire retardant chemical is impregnated into the leaves and branches during the injection molding process. The illustration below shows a side by side comparison of the benefits of fire safe plants made with ThermaLeaf® foliage versus topically treated foliage.

Fire Resistant Silk Plants

ThermaLeaf® Foliage (Inherently Fire Retardant)

● Fire safe chemicals impregnated into the
   plant materials during manufacturing

● Will not wash or wear off

● Consistent fire protection
   ● US Gov SIN 4722-06
   ● ASTM E84-95 Class A
   ● California Title 19
   ● NFPA 701
   ● NFPA 705
   ● BS 476: Part 7 Class 0
   ● BS 476: Part 6 Class 0
   ● NF X 700-100
   ● CAN/ULC S109 Small Scale, Large Scale
   ● EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009

● Structurally sound fire retardant plants and trees;
   premium grade fire safe plant materials withstand
   commercial application.

● Smooth surface reduces dust build-up

● Visually identical compared to standard foliages

Topically Treated Fire Retardant Foliage

● Treated by spraying or dipping it in
   topical fire retardant chemicals

● May wash or wear off and requires periodic reapplication

● Inconsistent fire protection for artificial plants
● May degrade materials, resulting in a wilted appearance

● Tacky surface film attracts dust

● Appearance may have a spotty or discolored film
