Contract Quality Textiles for Maritime & Transportation

The Maritime & Transportation sectors have very specific requirements and performance specifications, relating to the use of Fire Retardant products, given the confined spaces involved. These are governed by relevant bodies/legislation such as The International Maritime Organisation for marine, European wide legislation for Railway Applications and National and International Laws for Air transportation.

Thomas Kneale is highly experienced in manufacturing products compliant to the applicable test standards, with the relevant certificates gained from UKAS approved laboratories.

While legally compliant products are an absolute must, we believe that this should not come at the expense of comfort to aid good quality sleep. As a result, our transportation products have been specifically designed and manufactured with both comfort and compliance in mind.

As requirements will be specific to the end user, we would encourage you to look through our general products pages and then contact us where our knowledgeable team will understand what you are looking for and advise accordingly : –
