Some FR materials shouldn’t be worn directly against skin. Many can be uncomfortable, rough or stiff. Daletec fabric is always safe – no skin reactions or allergies. And we invented the “Dale comfort” softness standard that others struggle to meet.
It covers multiple human-ecological attributes – including harmful substances which are prohibited or regulated by law, chemicals which are known to be harmful to health, but are not officially forbidden, and parameters which are included as precautionary safeguard.
Daletec uses only Oeko-Tex certified dyestuffs and chemicals, and most fabrics are Oeko-Tex class II certified as safe for direct contact with skin.
The BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the textile sector’s future. BCI aims to transform cotton production worldwide by developing Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.
The move to BCI cotton is a step in Daletec’s strategy of not only processing high quality flame retardant products, but at the same time processing responsibly with as gentle footprint in our environment as possible.
UL (Under writers Laboratories) is a global safety and certification company. The recognized component mark is a type of quality mark issued by UL. It is placed on components which are intended to be part of UL listed products. Daletec has their fabrics certified by UL according to NFPA 2112.
Daletec’s production facility is certified for OCS. The Organic Content Standard (OCS) relies on third-party verification to verify a final product contains the accurate amount of a given organically grown material. It does not address the use of chemicals or any social or environmental aspects of production beyond the integrity of the organic material. The OCS uses the chain of custody requirements of the Content Claim Standard (CCS). The aim of this standard is to guarantee the traceability and integrity of the raw materials during all the manufacturing stages.
