Protection for Peaceful Sleep®: A Systems Approach
Protection for Peaceful Sleep® is a tape edge closing system that requires mattress manufactures to use a combination of components which are tested and certified to perform consistently. Mattresses built from these components and a certified fire barrier fabric using one of several patented tape edge closing systems, will consistently pass the open flame challenge of 16 CFR 1633.
Component Parts of the Protection for Peaceful Sleep® System:
CRAQ-SPUN® Sewing Thread
Based on our in-depth knowledge of flame resistant sewing threads, we know that CRAQ-SPUN® sewing thread made of para-aramid fiber is the best option for this critical operation. This selection meest three important requirements –high temperature resistance, high strength, and excellent sewability.
CRAQ-SPUN® sewing thread is tested for consistent performance using ASTM D7061, Standard Test Method to Evaluate Edge Binding Components Used in Mattresses After Exposure to an Open Flame.
OXFORD® FR Mattress Tape
OXFORD® FR mattress tape is also tested using ASTM D7016. The testing confirms that when the OXFORD® FR mattress tape is tested as a component, it self-extinguishes in less than 5 seconds both before and after five washings.
Our OXFORD® FR mattress tape is unmatched for performance.
Fire Barrier Fabric
Although Atlantic Thread does not specialize in fire barrier fabrics, we recognize that a supplier of FR sewing thread and FR mattress tape should have extensive knowledge about how these components interact with the fire barrier fabric.
CRAQ-SPUN® thread and OXFORD® FR mattress tape have performed very well with a variety of fire barrier fabrics that have been evaluated using ASTM D7140, Standard Test Method to Measure Heat transfer Through Materials Used as Thermal Barriers.
