Which of our materials are Crib 5?

Making sure the material your using adheres to crib 5 fire retardancy regulations is of utmost importance when upholstering in public areas. But which of our materials are crib 5? 

Inherently Crib 5 Materials

Our popular Enduratex contract vinyls are our most popular crib 5 materials, being specified in the NHS, stagecoach open top buses and many more areas. These include our Prairie, Prizm, Chelsea, Wexford & Carbon Fibre ranges. 

Our brand new Fresh & Vintage ranges are also inherintly crib 5 materials, which are viewable in our sample system now!

Polyurethene vinyls are often popular, due to their soft and supple feel. Which is great reason for us to offer this as a crib 5 material. The PU ranges which are inherinitely crib 5 are our Star, Bambu, Corzo, Oxidon, Premium OX.

Vinyls aren't the only material which can be crib 5, which is why we offer our Linum range as a an inheritnley crib 5 fabric.

Optionally Crib 5 Materials

Unfortunately, not all our materials come inherently crib 5. This is because we offer non-crib 5 specifications vinyls that are more cost effective. However, these can also be made to meet crib 5 specifications. 

Materials that can be made to crib 5 are our Eco, Filo, Ranger, TRX, Oxford, Divine, Molder & Neotec ranges. 


If you have any questions regarding our crib 5 materials, please don't hesitate to contact our sales team on 01264 771414 or email us at
