Our leathers comply with international fire resistance and water-repelling standards. Only in this way can we offer our customers a high quality product.
All our warehouse products meet some of the most important European standards for fire resistance, such as BS5852 source 0,1 e 5, Imo FTPC 8 e FMVSS 302.
Our flagship products have already been certified by major companies such as Fira Ltd and 3M Scotchgard. The tanneries where our skins are processed are ISO14000 certified in order to respect the environment.
Over the years, there has been a growing interest in the leather market for flame retardants. It is very important to determine the flammability of a leather especially when it is used in products for car upholstery, armchairs for hotels and even private homes. In the case of fires, in addition to the danger of burns, there can be issues with poisoning from combustion gases and production of dense gases. Dark fumes, in fact, are often the primary cause of deaths as they can prevent the occupants from rapidly evacuating the premises.
Our hides have been certified for fire resistance in every nation in the world
Our hides are water repellent and our treatments protect the surface. The finishes of our leather are resistant to water-based liquids, although they are not perceptible to the touch, sight and smell. The absolute softness and breathability of the leather is kept unchanged.
If a hide gets wet, it is very important to promptly intervene to remove the liquid in order to avoid that the liquid exceeds the barrier of the surface tension of the leather.
