Innovative new fabric meets regulatory and safety needs of US Commercial Building Market

Recasens USA is pleased to announce the release of the much anticipated Recsystem FR, the ultimate in fire retardant awning fabric and the only highly water resistant, fire-retardant 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric. This solution-dyed acrylic material combines the beauty and craftsmanship of Recasens fabrics with inherent fire retardancy and water resistant protection to meet the high standards of today’s commercial and other specialized applications.

“We have heard from our clients serving the commercial building market that there was a need for a beautiful performance fabric that met the regulatory standards for fire retardancy set by many local and national building safety agencies,” says Recasens USA National Sales Manager, Doug Dubay. “Today, I’m proud to say that we’ve delivered on their request, with a fabric that meets those standards, is easy to work with, and is aesthetically pleasing.”

A 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric incorporating both high water resistancy and fire-retardant features, Recsystem FR is perfectly suited to meet the needs of awning manufacturers, distributors, architects and others working on projects that are required to meet US fire safety standards such as hotels, schools, hospitals, and other public buildings. The fabric passes US standards NFPA 701, CSFM Title 19.

While specifically optimized for solar protection applications, Recsystem FR is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Manufactured using the patented Recasens Infinity Process, the fabric possesses a high-tech finish that provides exceptional repellency to water and dirt along with a high resistance to mold and mildew as well as a one ounce clear back coating on the underside of the fabric that provides an added level of water resistance making the fabric nearly waterproof without affecting its appearance.

Recsystem FR is scheduled to ship in early 2022. Sample cards are now available to distributors and OEMs. Contact your Recasens sales representative for more information.
