Fire Proof Fabric???

Does anyone know where you can purchase fireproof fabric? Our school had the fire marshall visit at the end of last school year and he made us take down our valances in our doorways and windows. We are not allowed to use any material unless it is fire proof or fire retardant. I am pretty upset because I had invested quite a bit of time and money into material to make my classroom look cute. Please help!!

At my old school we were told that it had to be fireproof or we could spray it with the fireproofing stuff to make it fireproof. I never ended up doing it, but here is a link to buy some spray --- so maybe you could save your curtains.

We were told by the fire marshal last may that we could not have more than 20% of our hallway bulletin boards covered in paper! Now exactly what are we supposed to put on those bulletin boards? It is a national law so watch out - it could be coming to your town.

If you can't use paper then use fireproofed material or material that is fire proof sprayed or fire retardant, fire resistant. I like to use material as the background for bulletin boards anyway because it comes in all kinds of neat designs. I can usually find something neat in the remnants bin. It doesn't take much as it can be used again and again. It does fade though just like paper if left up too long or in a sunny area.
