What Are Maritime Fabrics
Maritime fabrics are articles that pass a series of stringent tests regarding safety – particularly fire retardency. The International Maritime Organization (IMO), is a United Nations specialized agency responsible for the safety and security of shipping and the prevention of marine pollution by ships. IMO monitor and measure all aspects of shipping, from boat design and construction, to operations, ensuring that the industry is as safe and efficient as possible. Fabrics that are certified as IMO or Maritime comply with the stringent rules and regulations of this industry. This means that these fabrics are safe enough for use on cruise liners and ships as curtains, bedding, accessories and upholstery making them the safest option to install in your interior.
