What are fire retardant artificial plants?
Artificial plants themselves do not have fire resistance. EdenVert’s range of fire retardant artificial plants is produced with FR additives added during the manufacturing process. This endows them with excellent flame retardant properties, tested to the BS EN13501-1:2018 standards of reaction to fire.
Artificial plants produced in this way remain flame retardant for the rest of their lifespan, and such a property is called “inherently fire retardant”. Artificial plants of this kind aren’t prone to ignition and combustion even when exposed to high temperatures or open flames for an extended period of time.
The benefits of fire retardant artificial plants
Fake plants with flame retardant properties help ensure peace of mind when creating a space both indoors and outdoors. Especially if the artificial living wall is likely to be placed near a fireplace or heat source, you can rest assured that faux plants are considerably low risk.
Fire rated artificial green walls are easy to install. Once installed, there is not much else to do. You don’t need to consider a schedule for maintaining the greenery wall or worry about replacing plants that aren’t growing. All you need to do is dust off the leaves every now and then to make sure they look their best.
Stunning all year round
A fire rated fake plant wall does not require specific conditions to thrive. You don’t have to consider the humidity, whether there’s enough light to encourage growth, or whether the climate is right for the foliage. In fact, you can place the faux living wall anywhere. Seasonality isn’t an issue either, you don’t need to wait for the plants on the living walls to bloom to really enjoy it, as it does all year round.
