The dangers of faulty FR fabrics. Today's mattresses are often simple constructions. This is not to say that they are inexpensive or even less effective than spring mattresses for instance, which involve a metal frame structure, coils, batting, filling, foam, quilting and finishing. The science of sleep has advanced since the advent of box spring mattresses and today's mattress design, speaks to that advancement. Made of single, pure adaptive materials, modern mattress manufacturers seek only the best materials for their mattresses (like memory foam) and then require the least amount of separation between the sleeper and the mattress substrate. This means mattresses are made primarily of latex and memory foams, and sometimes ONLY of latex and memory foams, covered only by a prefabricated zippered cover, so that the customer gets the best sleeping experience. Now whereas the batting, and quilting added to the FR properties of the mattress, the new mattress construction no longer possesses these elements. To make matters worse, these new 'intelligent' foams, like latex and memory foam, are much denser than regular polyurethane foam, which makes their fuel load all the much higher. In such cases, a proper fire barrier product is essential to guarantee CFR 1633 certifications.
Watch a video of a fire barrier known to pass CFR1633 testing on a regularly formulated mattress; and watch it fail when it is tested with a simple mattress construction: foam and non-FR plastic vinyl cover that melts and drips.
