Recently, a failed robbery attempt took place in Rexburg which resulted in a fire outbreak. A woman broke in the AMET building and was held responsible for starting a fire in one of the offices. The fire appeared to have started with a stack of burning paper on top of a file cabinet and gradually spread further. The other accessories in the office that were victim of this fire included a plastic artificial plant. Even if the fire sprinkler system present in the building put out the fire and the supposed burglar was arrested, a mess was created. Everything else was back in place but for the burnt artificial tree.
It is true that artificial plants and silk trees are probably the best suited decorative accents for any kind of interiors. Maintenance free silk plants, artificial floral arrangements, silk hanging bushes, artificial topiaries and other faux trees carry with them some benefits especially for offices. But at the same time, care must be taken to be assured that the silk plants you order for your office are prepared with fire-retardant material. Otherwise, an accident as mentioned above is likely to happen and it will spoil the entire charm of your interiors.
Purchasing artificial trees designed from high quality and fire-retardant silk material is a significant precaution that you must take. Most of the states have adopted fire codes for silk trees so that fire injuries and accidents can be prevented. NFPA 701 and ASTM R84 are the most common tests that are used in majority of states to assess the quality and fire-retardant capacities of silk material. While ordering artificial plants and trees for your indoors, make sure that the material used is fire-retardant and has passed the fire tests. Going for fire retardant silk plants and trees is the most advantageous way to decorate your interiors
