Obtain Fireproofing Certification – NY
The importance of fireproofing your establishment is to protect your guests and all that are present, and ensure the safety of your property. Nearly every town and city in the country has a comprehensive fire code that requires a certain level of fire resistance for draperies, window treatments, and other decorative textiles.

- Fire retardant must be applied by a certified applicator who will then issue the appropriate certification.
