In response to a request from within the performing arts industry, Actsafe Safety Association produced a video on how to conduct a field flame test to determine if a material is properly flame retarded.

The video discusses what to look for to see if a material is already properly flame retarded; when to test materials; where to look for information and, of course, how to conduct a field flame test.

Please note: A field flame test should only be conducted when a material’s flame retardant documentation is not available. It is a last resort to check for flame retardation. When testing, only a sample of the material should be tested.

Actsafe would like to thank Erin Neely of Hollynorth Production Supplies for her participation in the making of this video.
