Our full range of waterproof and fire resistant bedding is a specialist bedding range designed to meet the exacting requirements of British Standard (BS) 7175 (see next section, below). In particular, our waterproof, wipe-clean bedding range is targetted to hotels, hospitality and the care sector, where the risk of liquid damage and/or ignition are present.
What is BS7175?
BS7175 is a British Standard, controlled and governed by the British Standards Institute (BSI) which is a UK body responsible for setting standards for the quality of goods and services sold and manufactured in the UK. BSI issues a massive range of standards across a huge variety of products and industries. BS-7175 is officially title "Methods of test for the ignitability of bedcovers and pillows by smouldering and flaming ignition sources". The name is self-explanatory but it means that all bedding suppliers aiming to sell to certain institutions, for example prisons, must conform to these regulations.
What are CRIB ratings for Prison Bedding?
CRIB ratings are required by the Prison Service to ensure all bedding and bed linen is compliant to ignition source tests, to demonstrate safety for fire ratings. The bedding is tested against various ignition sources, where ignition source 0 is a cigarette test, and its resistance to fire is given a rating, which for prisons must be 7 or higher. The same rating also applies just as much to other institutions too, for example hotels, guest houses, hospitals and others.
What is Waterproof Bedding?
Waterproof bedding is specifically designed to protect mattresses, duvets and pillows, specifically in cases of incontience or just to provide better bedding protection.
Who Uses Waterproof and Fire Resistant Bedding?
Waterproof bedding can be used at home, but is very often used in care homes, nursing homes and right across the NHS.
