It's that time of the year again when Haunted House designers are ordering our GPS Black Plastic Sheeting that is fire retardant. Now more than ever, fire marshals insist that the black plastic sheeting be flame resistant in the even someone lights their lighter. This insistance on the plastic being flame resistant is happening not only in commercial places like amusement parks, but also at smaller venues such as fund raising events at local schools. Plastic sheeting when ignited makes for an "exciting" fire- meaning it burns like crazy! By using fire retardant black plastic, the plastic won't add to the fire as a source of fuel.

As you can see, that amazing thing called fire retardant additive transforms the highly flammable black plastic sheeting into a tame non-burning product. It's important to understand that fire retardant does not mean that it won't melt. It merely means it won't add to the fuel source.
When you order fire resistant black plastic, make sure you get the Certificate of Compliance (COC) which documents that your are getting the real deal. This certificate is what the fire marshal looks for.
Make your Halloween season safe for everyone, and use as many fire retardant products as you can in our haunted house.
Happy Halloween everyone!
