All of our mattresses meet all the requirements of BS 5852: 1982 Part 2 ignition source 2 in accordance with Schedule 2 Part IV (ignitability test for composite fillings of mattresses and bed-bases) of the Statutory Instruments No. 1324 Consumer Protection The Furniture & Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988 providing you with a safe sleeping environment. To meet these standards, we are required by law to ensure that all of our mattresses are Fire Retardant (FR). We have been able to pass the relevant fire tests for all our baby and child mattresses without having to treat the covering fabrics with any FR treatment.
For our Adult and Teen mattresses we have had to apply an FR treatment in order to pass the same tests. However we have managed to find a FR treatment that has been tested by Oeko-Tex® for more than 300 potentially harmful substances. For more information on the criteria of this test please look at the Oeko-Tex® website. (https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/business/certifications_and_services/ots_100/ots_100_start.xhtml ). Our FR fabric is certified to the Oeko Tex 100 Standard and is only given after the product passes strict laboratory testing and requirements. At Naturalmat, we believe in safeguarding the environment and your health by only using products that are both safe and of the highest quality, and you can rest easy knowing that the fabrics are free from harmful chemicals and safe to sleep on.
