Technical Bulletin for AKASafe™ Fire Barrier Laminates

AK Associates has developed a wonder backing for textiles used in upholstered furniture – AKASafe™, which is made in USA. This unique nonwoven is composed of a proprietary blend of synthetic fibers and a treatment which makes it highly suitable for this end use. The fire retardant property comes from the inherent nature of this exceptional product.

Tested & Approved – California Technical Bulletin 117

AKASafe™ has been tested by The Govmark Lab where it easily passed the test requirements of California Technical Bulletin 117 (March 2000) Section E for Backing of Textiles for Upholstered Furniture, which is a base requirement for the furniture to qualify under the California Technical Bulletin 133. Lab certification is available upon request.

In keeping with the philosophy of AK Associates to support the environment, we have worked hard to create an environment friendly product. To that end, AKASafe™ does not have any:

  • Halogenated Compounds (PBDEs)
  • Antimony
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates
  • Phosphorus
  • Other Coatings

AKASafe™ has been created with in-depth knowledge of the end use and the end-user’s requirements—soft enough to support the elegance and nature of the fabric it is backing without affecting the feel or texture while also making it easy to use around edges of furniture. Additionally, AKASafe can be used to wrap small pieces of foam for projects wherein application of a backing is not a feasible option.

AKASafe is proudly manufactured in the United States of America.
