Fire retardant black plastic sheeting plus a garage or carport, can transform that space into a wonderful haunted room.

Put up fake tombstones as well as a great inflatable haunted household entrance for the wow factor!

Most likely you will need something to hold up your black fire retardant plastic sheeting.  This is where fire retardant tape comes in.  It is so important to use a many fire retardant items in your haunted house, just in case it should come in contact with an open flame.  Fire retardant plastic will not add to the fire. It will melt or extinquish when the flame hits it.

If you want to suspend some creepy things from the ceiling, consider using fire retardant red stripe strapping.  It's much stronger than most twine, and will not be a fuel source should a fire break out.  We know it's unlikely that your haunted house will have a fire- but it's better to be safe than sorry.  If you are building a haunted house for the general public- say at a school, church, or a warehouse- check with your local fire marshal.  They may require fire retardant plastic sheeting, along with the documentation to prove it meets the fire codes.  Click here if you would like to view fire retardant plastic sheeting and tape for use in your haunted house adventure!

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!
