Acacia Fabrics Partners Deep Living To Launch Fire Retardant ‘Fr-One’ Fabric

Kuala Lumpur, August 6, 2012: Acacia Fabrics, the fore-runner in providing quality fabrics for over 18 years, today launched FR-ONE, a new fire retardant fabric, marking a new era for interior designers and architects who now have a new defence against indoor fires in residences and offices.

Textiles and fabrics share one common and natural enemy – FIRE! Traditional fabrics are easily devoured by flames in which lives, memories and homes can be lost in an instant.

The fundamental idea behind the creation of FR-One was to create the best fire retardant fabric available in the market. All FR-One fabrics are extensively tested and certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 which is the most important ecological standard and benchmark for consumers and manufacturers alike. The fabrics are not harmful to human health and all standards with regard to skin contact are met.

To showcase the new product in the best possible environment, ACACIA has teamed up with Deep Living to feature Acacia’s fine fabrics on custom-designed furniture by well-known Chief Designer & Creative Director, Blaine Roberts. All the furniture will be displayed at the Deep Living show gallery in Jalan Yew.

This partnership will also further introduce Deep Living extraordinary designs to Acacia’s diverse network of industry architects, designers, hoteliers and developers.

To mark the milestone between both companies, front man of the FR-ONE campaign and furnishing and fabric expert, Olivier Delhomme was invited to speak during the launch on the revolutionary new solution for the contract furnishings sector in a presentation entitled: “A World of Green & Safety”.

Mr Delhomme who has amassed comprehensive knowledge of furnishing fabrics and furniture industries, both in the U.K. and internationally, touched on how FR-One fabrics have been developed to offer an instantly recognisable branded and guaranteed solution for contract specification, which passes all the international FR standards without needing additional treatment.
