Fireproof parachute on the up


Fireproofing a parachute with 3-2-1 Spray.

Probably the most unusual request to be received by fire consultants Anglian Intumescent was the fire-proofing of a parachute, and the task was undertaken at Intumescent Systems Ltd. The pictures above show how the parachute had to be carefully spread across a large area to ensure that all of the material was covered with Envirograf® Product 66 (3-2-1 fire retardant spray). However, the parachute will never be used for descent from an aircraft but as an highly unusual ceiling decoration in a night club. The Envirograf® 3-2-1 fire retardant sprays are extremely versatile, and they have been used successfully to fireproof canvas, cardboard, carpets, Christmas trees, clothing, curtains, linen, polystyrene, polyurethane furniture, tents, upholstery, and wallpaper.
