Seaman Corporation has announced that Play-Rite™ fabric has been successfully tested to meet California Fire Marshall Requirements, Registration No. FA 10303, one of the most rigid safety requirements for fabrics in the U.S.

Designed specifically for recreational market products, Play-Rite fabric previously had been granted other flame-retardant designations including Federal Standard 191/Test Method 590; ASTM D 6413-99; and NFPA 701-99.

“These designations are extremely important to an industry that concentrates heavily on fabricating inflatable recreational structures used by children,” said Richard Seaman, president and chief executive officer of Seaman Corporation.

The proven flame retardant advantages join an array of performance test results showing Play-Rite fabric also exhibits superior tear and abrasion resistance. That strength enables Play-Rite fabric to withstand the kicks, bounces and general abuses that are common to structures created for the recreational market.

Available in 14 bright colors, Play-Rite fabrics have been used to fabricate a range of recreational products that are featured on a dedicated Seaman Corporation web site: The site offers specific product data specifications and an order form to request samples of Play-Rite fabric.

Over the last half-century, Seaman Corporation has been at the forefront of virtually every high performance fabric innovation. Other Seaman fabrics are engineered for use as roofing systems, landfill containment, truck tarps, military applications and architectural structures.

Play-Rite™ is a registered trade name of Seaman Corporation.
